This Student Surprised Us in More Ways Than One

Virginia Beach, VA — When Malcolm Gaines saw the big, blue bus in Norfolk, VA, he knew he had an opportunity to meet a SNHU representative in person, and to tell his story.

We were equally thrilled to meet Malcolm, and his story amazed us.

A recent graduate who earned his Masters of Science in Community Economic Development, Malcolm shared his online learning experience with us, highlighting the positive communication and interaction between students. He also emphasized the importance of educational advancement, even after retirement. It was a SNHU class that inspired Malcolm to start a non-profit that provides housing for low income families in the Norfolk, VA area.

A new grandfather, Malcolm shared his philosophy on maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle. His secret?

“Going back to school gives you a chance to challenge yourself…and I would advise that for anybody.”

If you see the big, blue bus, come and tell us your story.
