"Thank you, SNHU, for helping me to push in the right direction."

Education is something that I have always been very passionate about. Challenging myself academically has always been exciting to me. My academic journey has been a long one, beginning in 2008 when I graduated high school at the age of 16. My first academic year I excelled, but the next year turned into a slippery slope. I became ill and spent the next two-and-a-half years struggling to maintain academically and financially from my illness. I ended up taking a year off from school, but I did not want to give up on my dream.

In 2013, I came across SNHU on Fast Company's 2012 list of most innovative companies. Connecting with an admission counselor and then an advisor, I now call SNHU my home. The faculty and staff have been nothing but supportive and more than helpful in turning things around for me. I have watched as the online community continues to grow and the dedication this school has to presenting more and more options for online students. Coming into the last leg of my degree before graduation, I would recommend SNHU to anyone looking for a rewarding and helpful online experience for learning.

For current students, I would say not to hesitate to reach out to advisors and professors; they are very valuable resources. After the undergraduate program, I plan to pursue two master’s degrees and later return to higher education as a professor. Thank you, SNHU, for helping me to push in the right direction.
