First of all, don't believe the slick commercialsQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
First of all, don't believe the slick commercials that are all over TV. This place is a diploma mill, pure and simple. I busted my ass all freshman year and got all A's, the EXACT SAME GRADE as the nimrods who spent their entire time being wasted or having elaborate "personal issues." It's like the professors are scared of failing anybody. I found that I either already knew the stuff in class and in the readings, or that the tests were too easy. And WHY does everybody demand group presentations?!? I thought I had left this crap behind in middle school. I was forcibly yoked together with a Chinese student whose English was so rudimentary as to render her useless; a stoner with more tattoos and piercings than brain neurons, and this frightened, sad little girl who never spoke above a whisper. Guess who ended up doing all the work? Yep, me.Luckily, I don't have to return to this hole because I'm transferring to a different school, a looooong way from New Hampshire.

I am currently in my senior year ofQuite BrightPsychology
I am currently in my senior year of my bachelors degree. I have had a great experience with them. I have had several very friendly advisors, who have always been willing to help if I need it. There have been 1 or 2 teachers that seemed uninterested in what they were teaching, but I have seen that in the local community college. Due to my hectic schedule I became unable to attend traditional classes, so SNHU's online program has been a great alternative. But I did want to comment on those who are stating that SNHU is not an accredited university, if they weren't accredited financial aid would not be an option. The aid comes from the federal government, and especially after several schools were busted for not being accredited they are not lending money to those universities anymore. I did months of research before choosing Southern New Hampshire University, it was clearly the least expensive with more options. It also has a traditional brick and mortar school which you are able to tour and feel more a part of.

Southern New Hampshire University was a good schoolQuite BrightOther
Southern New Hampshire University was a good school for my first year mainly because it made me realize what I really hated. First off the location sucks and the only things to do are go to the mall, the club (only good one is whiskeys), or the movies. After two semesters that gets real old. The parties on campus suck and are repetitive after a while.

Greek life is so stupid and an irrelevant joke. The clubs are run by people who appoint and promote their closest friends. While their are some fun events they are few and far between.

They put up a facade about the dorms being really nice but if you get stuck in the shit hole of lower and upper suites you will probably get some sort of infection because it is just nasty. Their is mold in the dorms and the bathrooms are never cleaned. The shower is the size of a small closet and the closet has no door.

The RA's are party hardy and only do what benefits them enforcing rules when they see fit. The food tastes like shit and will definitely make you and your stomach regret your choices.

The academics are a joke and people ditch class constantly and will still get an A. My roommate had a class cancelled every week she attended twice and got an A in Freshman English. Its ridiculous! Along with the fact that your paying the shit load of money you are this is unacceptable! Trust me their is so much more I could tell you but please trust me when I say do NOT go here it is awful and I am transferring along with half of the other people on my floor! If you attend here you might as well be going to a community college!
