Where there are no limits to what you can do.
At Southern New Hampshire University, “typical” isn’t in our vocabulary, and we’ll never make you choose between tradition and innovation.
At SNHU, we set the bar high, both for our students and ourselves. We offer innovative three-year degree programs, an ever-expanding number of academic majors, and an impressive list of unique career preparation opportunities, all of which reflect our dedication to continuous improvement.
SNHU is large enough to offer a wide range of educational programs and small enough that you’ll never feel like just a face in the crowd. When you walk through campus on your way to a class or club meeting, you’ll see friends, classmates, professors, career advisors, and more—and you’ll be able to greet them all by name. With a student body of just over 3,000 students, SNHU strikes a perfect balance between community and personalization. We believe that professors should be able to get to know their students individually. After all, college is about more than just preparing you for a future career: it’s about creating a culture that inspires every person, every day, to do more, learn more, try harder, and exceed expectations.
As a private nonprofit university, we understand the financial challenges that many students face when applying for college. That’s why we make every effort to lower the bottom line through need-based grants of up to $20,000, with additional need-based scholarships for qualified students.
Once you arrive at SNHU, you’ll meet our impressive faculty, who are Fulbright Scholars, writers, engineers, artists, accountants, marketing pros, economists, entrepreneurs, and much more. In fact, the range of professional experience embodied by our faculty is second only to the range of global experiences represented by our students. With over 30 countries represented in our student body, SNHU is never short of fresh, new perspectives.
We could fill a book with our students’ success stories. Our programs are designed with the real world in mind, and we offer career development from day one to ensure our students are successful when they graduate. Recent SNHU graduates have built successful careers with organizations such as Fidelity Investments, Disney World, the Department of Homeland Security, and many more. SNHU has established strong connections with some of the most visible organizations in the region and is the official higher education sponsor of the Boston Celtics, the New England Patriots, and Major League Soccer.
There is no shortage of things to do or places to be on SNHU’s gorgeous riverside campus, and we’re always making improvements. We recently celebrated the grand opening of our new welcome center, home to our offices of admissions, career development, and alumni relations—ensuring that every step in the SNHU life cycle is represented under one roof. Monadnock Hall, our newest residence hall, opened this year (with another residence hall on the way), and we will soon be breaking ground on a state-of-the-art academic building to house our brand-new College of Engineering, Technology, and Aeronautics. The SNHU campus is also home to a simulated stock trading room, museum-quality art gallery, fully equipped fitness center, and our award-winning, student-run gourmet restaurant, The Quill.
“Student-run” is a term you’ll hear a lot at SNHU. Campus activities run the gamut from intercollegiate athletics and intramural sports to lip sync contests and comedy shows. With more than 70 clubs and organizations to get involved with, you never know where you’ll meet your next lifelong friend—or when! Start making new friends today with a visit to our beautiful campus. Visit snhu.edu/visit to schedule a tour or register for one of our many on-campus events. We look forward to welcoming you and showing you all we have to offer!
