"The instructors are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful."

A few years after my arrival in America, I decided I wanted to pursue my lifelong dream of getting a good education. At the age of thirty, I went back to school. I spent a few years taking classes at my local community college in Bakersfield, California, while working full-time, and still trying to have some time left over for my family. Then, at a time when I was close to finishing my associate degree, we unexpectedly got a chance to move to another city, one that was closer to where we had always wanted to live. This meant that I no longer could attend my community college. Even so, I knew I wasn’t going to give up my dream of a good education. So I started looking for another college, this time one that offered the option of earning a degree online.

After countless hours on the Internet comparing online universities against each other, regarding both cost and quality, I decided to enroll at SNHU. So far, this has turned out to be a great choice. The instructors are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Everyone, from my enrollment counselor, the financial aid department, to my academic advisor, has been eager to help anytime I had a question or needed help. I am now pursuing a BA degree in Computer Information Technology and feel like I truly found a university that can help me achieve my goals.
