Today marks the start of a new 8-week term at SNHU, and this is one of the ways I prepared over the past week.
ENG-123, English Composition II, is the first class I took as a newly minted middle-aged college student. I had no idea what to expect, I’d had very little training on Brightspace, and I jumped in headfirst.
Once I finished enrollment and was officially a middle-aged college student, I had to learn how to attend school online.
Southern New Hampshire University—SNHU—advertised two important things. One, it has a fantastic writing program. Two, it’s a real school. I wanted a school that’s been around for a while, a school that was brick-and-mortar long before offering online degree programs.
In July 2019, at age 44, I went back to school. I enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University, online, to major in English & Creative Writing with a Fiction concentration.
