What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of New Hampshire is an amazing place to be. The campus is gorgeous– even in the cold winters the streets of Durham are breathtaking. Wether you choose to eat at Holloway Commons, Phillbrook, or Stillings Hall, the food at UNH is bar none, especially the salad bar! While on campus, there is plenty to keep you busy. Between the museum on campus, events at the Memorial Union Building and residential hall activities, no one ever goes bored. While this is all great, to me, the heart of UNH is the Diamond Library, a place where I spent a majority of my time. The quiet rooms are filled with the beautiful sunshine during the day, and a quiet glow at night, and just downstairs are fun collaborative spaces to make studying a social event.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion is that the University of New Hampshire is a good school. Now, they do jerk you around a bit when it comes to the finance area, such as FAFSA, Loans, and Bill, but they will work with you to resolve any doubts and they do their best to help. It should be noted that the policies, not the people, will be the main cause of your headaches regarding classes, housing, and other such things. The people will help you as best they can. Now, as a fair warning that I've come to learn, if paying for tuition is something weighing you down and you decide to go to UNH, be prepared that your Freshman Fafsa award will be the highest, unless there is a change in household income that decreases it. Other than that, it's gonna go down every year. For me, it was $14,500, $12,600, and then $7,500. Yeah, that one was a shock. So, pay attention to that and keep that in mind. I know its the same for all colleges, but this is what happened to me. Also, working on campus is a big plus. Do work on campus. I worked in all 3 dining halls and it's good pay for good work. $10 an hour, you can go in for 2 hour shifts up to 12 hour if need be, and they work with your schedule. The Library, the Rec centers and the transit(Buses) also hire and pay well, but you won't get as much flexibility in schedule and better pay than dining halls. Also, you get a free meal with every shift. You're welcome. To wrap this up, the best piece of advice I can give you about UNH is never underestimate the power a phone call can have. If there is a problem, then reach out to the faculty associated. Not enough Fafsa? Call. Issue with transcript? Call. Want to change housing? Call. You will be pleasantly surprised how well phone calls go for you. I cannot stress this enough, UNH prides itself on it's ability to connect with student problems, and they do care. If you do have a problem, call someone. More times than not, it'll be solved during the phone call. You will save yourself a lot of stress.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNH is a great school, with a beautiful campus. People have their cliques but are overall nice and very welcoming. The classes push and challenge you, but they're not so hard that you feel like you're failing out. There's a good mix of students, everyone can find their home at UNH, there really is a place for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Main Campus of University of New Hampshire (hereafter UNH) is a beautiful campus welcoming to commuters and campus dwellers alike. It is located in the small town of Durham, NH; but is only 30 minutes from the city of Portsmouth, NH and 15 minutes from the town of Dover, NH. This allows for dozens of various extracurricular activities for everyone. There are many different groups on campus at UNH. Dungeons and Dragons groups, the Greek fraternities and sororities, the band, sports teams, residential life groups, religious groups - the list is practically endless! The academics at UNH are great, some classes are really challenging and the professors collectively are very helpful There also are many other resources to take advantage of academically that are free for students such as the math center, the various libraries, the computer clusters, the writing center and the maker space. Overall, this is a great school where anyone can feel at home in Wildcat Country. Come visit UNH and see for yourself!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNH is a sports-based, health-kick, greek "friendly" campus filled with students who are eager to move on with their future. Despite the irritating parking tickets that are given out like candy, this campus really does have a lot to offer for anyone who is trying to create a successful future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first, I was apprehensive about UNH because my entire life I have viewed it as a party school. Although there is a decent amount of partying, many people there are very serious about their education and getting good grades. Campus is easy to navigate and all of the students that I have talked to have been very receptive, intelligent, and helpful. UNH is a great school, even for someone who doesn't know what they want to do yet.

The campus is beautiful and fun. In the warm months everyone is outside. Professors are nice and helpful. The food is not the best but there are some non-dining hall options. Making friends is easy and finding fun things to do is not difficult. Overall I love UNH!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus-especially during the fall. Almost everything is within a 10 minute walk which is super convenient. There are a TON of opportunities to get involved here - whether is fraternity/sorority life, community service, or sports! There is a very big community feel within all the res halls and throughout the campus. This college is also crazy about New England sports so be ready to celebrate! Unfortunately there is not a lot of diversity at this campus but they do offer many multicultural and and diverse groups and organizations.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am very dissatisfied with UNH and have been my whole time here. I lived on campus for about 2/3 of my freshman year, and the campus is so small that I was always bored, especially not having a car to go anywhere and therefore being confined to only the locations you could go to using the bus. There are hardly any places to go downtown so I went maybe two or three times and then felt like I’d been everywhere and didn’t need to go downtown ever again. I eventually decided to commute because I was so bored, and even having a car and living on campus I would still be bored there and would never end up spending any time on campus anyways. The parking is absolutely horrible at UNH. Whether you’re a commuter or not, there is no parking ever. There are maybe enough parking spots for a twentieth of the students that go there, and everyone else will just spend the rest of their lives circling around the same parking spots, and stalking people walking there to try and steal their spot. I give myself about 25 minutes to find a spot and walk to class before class actually starts, and I have still found myself saying screw it, parking somewhere else, still being late to class and then getting a ticket. Which, by the way, are $50 a piece. I swear UNH makes more money off of parking tickets than they do the actual tuition, they are ruthless about it, and the tickets won’t show up online sometimes. I actually got withdrawn from all of my classes halfway through a semester because I didn’t pay two parking tickets that I didn’t know I had and never saw online. My tuition was fully paid. I got accidentally withdrawn once before this in a computer glitch that was never fully explained to me, so luckily I knew the entire lengthy process of getting reregistered, that included all my professors, the dean and business services. It took me four months to get my major changed due to another unexplained “computer glitch”, and because of this I signed up for classes late and didn’t get the classes I wanted. Also, all of the required classes for my major overlap each other, which is prolonging my experience here when all I want to do is graduate early and be done. For example, I’ll have an algebra class that I’m required to take at 9, so I am not able to take a different required class, so then I have to take physics instead, which will then overlap with the computer science class I need. It’s infuriating. I’ve also had professors that have been entirely inconsiderate of those who don’t live on campus, giving mandatory lectures at 8 at night (7 hours after my last class of the day), giving assignments at the last minute on books that we have to get at the library over the weekend and are unavailable anywhere else and there’s only one copy of the book there (I ended up presenting on something that I never even read because of this). This next semester I have exams at 7-9pm, which means I will get home at about 10 at night, and it also means I won’t be able to work those days which I really need to do. Not to mention I’ll then get home that late and have to do more homework for the next day. It’s ridiculously inconsiderate, and I have been very fed up with just about everything to the point where I’ve considered just taking online classes from somewhere else instead.
