BA Psychology - Mental Health, Class of 1800

"I knew that with a degree from SNHU, I would feel great about my education."

I transferred to SNHU from community college. As a human services major, I already knew I had a passion and drive like no other, and believed I had a calling that only a career within the mental health/psychology field could fulfill. After several semesters at community college, I decided that transferring into a bachelor of science program would be more beneficial for my career, and that becoming part of a bigger school would be great for my morale.

I chose SNHU over other colleges and universities because of the great reputation it has. We have all seen the brochures and commercials on TV. I wanted to be part of it. I knew that with a degree from SNHU, I would feel great about my education, and I also feel that future employers would see it differently from other institutions.

My advisor, Chantel, has come to be a great mentor. She has gone out of her way to call or email me even on the weekends, or later in the evening. She surpassed any expectation of a student advisor I had, and I know that I wouldn't enjoy school at SNHU if it weren't for her guidance. I couldn't be more happy with my decision to come to SNHU, and thoroughly look forward to the many semesters ahead, and the professors and alumni I will come to know and remember.
