Upon arriving in St. Louis, we decided to put a call out for area SNHU students to come meet us in their city. We were lucky to meet three terrific students, all in different programs and all at different points in their journey.
Kira Cowan, a brand-new SNHU student, delighted in telling us about the English/Fiction Writing program she just began. We met Kira at the beautiful Kiener Plaza by St. Louis’ historic Old Courthouse- and she even had a few extra minutes to give us some lunch recommendations!
Mike Matney retired from the Air Force 10 years ago and decided to pursue his B.A. in Graphic Design at SNHU. When asked why Graphic Design, Mike said, “I’ve been in transportation so long, I wanted to do something I wanted to do.” An enthusiastic photographer, Mike shared his favorite spots in the city to view the famous St. Louis Arch.
Making our way south, we surprised Raul Aguayo at his work since he couldn’t make it downtown. Currently a Referral Specialist at the Wound and Treatment Center at St. Anthony’s Medical Center, Raul is getting close to finishing his B.S. in Healthcare Management. Raul proudly shared that he is the first in his family to pursue a college degree.
We greatly enjoyed our time in St. Louis and are looking forward to meeting more incredible students in Louisville. If you’re in the area, reach out to us, we’d love to meet you and hear about your journey.
