What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a good environment. The campus is great and people are very helpful and supportive. The professors are always willing to help and they will work with you to make sure you understand the material. Talking specifically about the Theatre Dept. - its a very close-knit community but also super welcoming to newcomers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love it! This school is in a very isolated location which gives the campus a true college feel. It is a beautiful spread out campus, there is a lot of academic freedom, people and professors are kind, so overall I am very excited to attend UNH in the fall. I can't wait to be active on campus with all of the outside activities such as CHARG and greek life. However, there is so much more for everyone.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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!!
