What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great University for social, sports, academic endeavors. The problems I encountered were not getting time with a professor when I needed it, even when I reached out for assistance to certain professors. I also felt the class size was too large and not enough help was provided to feel like you had their undivided attention for questions.

UNH is an underrated school. The academics and campus life are great. The professors seem to care about their students and the subjects that they teach. It's not a huge school so if you're looking for that it might not be the place for you! Overall it is a great value as well

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The classes are big, as lectures usually are. For some classes, like the math ones, there are recitations, which are supplements to the lecture. They’re held in a small room with maybe 20 people; this is where you’d ask questions/seek help if you need to. The dorms are fine, there are off campus apartments, and the food is okay, I’m not really a huge fan honestly. The burgers and pasta are tasteless. I think I ate pizza or cereal for almost every meal. There are off campus apartments, parties every weekend, and lots to do off campus. I’d recommend visiting downtown Portsmouth. The wildcats bus can take you there. The school gym is nice, there’s a pool for when it’s hot, and an indoor track, but I didn’t participate in clubs or sports so I can’t really speak for them. UNH Durham is okay, but I prefer city life so I’m transferring elsewhere :-)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think the University of New Hampshire has a lot to offer. On one hand, there is always an opportunity to be involved. I think that's a great perk to being away from home and making college feel more like a community. Whether you want to get into academic clubs, art, music, politics, sports, or even get an on-campus job, the possibilities are endless. For anyone coming from living in a house with their family, switching to a dorm can be a big change. As with any college, you share a lot and rely mostly on dining halls for meals, unless you live in an apartment. As far as housing, UNH has plenty of options. You can live in a single, double, triple or even suite. You can even find out which dorm building suites you the most. When I first arrived, I was assigned to a building that was very focused on academics. This is perfect for those who want to focus solely on their studies, and be surrounded by people who have the same goals. Although this wasn't necessarily for me, UNH made it very easy for me to switch into a new dorm, where I felt like there was more socialization. All college dorms have their fair share of the "ick" factor, but UNH does a really good job of keeping the living spaces clean with daily housekeepers to clean the bathrooms, hallways and lounge areas. The dining halls are conscious of all kinds of diets, by including allergen friendly sections, vegan sections, self-serve bars and switch up the menus frequently to avoid repetitiveness. The academics are also great here. A few of my professors and I are on a first name basis, even in lecture halls with students upwards of 200. The staff really do care about the success of their students, even if some may be a little tough. Class schedules are fairly easy to navigate, and the campus is the perfect size for walking. If you don't want to walk to classes, there's also a bus service that runs daily, that can even take you to Portsmouth or Dover. The biggest downside of my experience thus far has been the slow start to a social life. I attempted to start a soccer club team on campus, but was unable due to lack of resources. I joined a couple clubs my first semester but still didn't have the easiest time meeting friends. I did eventually rush a sorority, which gave me a ton of friends and connections, and made the campus feel a lot smaller. I'm now roommates with one of the girls I met through that experience and can say that my time here has improved so much. If you take advantage of everything this school has to offer, you can really turn it into a great home for your next four years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, UNH is a very well-rounded school. Academically I have been very pleased with my professors throughout the past 4 years. Nearly every one of my teachers has been helpful both in and out of the classroom. As for the campus itself, while it is a fairly big school, I have always felt safe. Living on campus was a great experience. There are multiple events held throughout the week; there is always something to do. The only drawback I have from this school is the cost. It is the second most expensive state school in the country. Aside from this, UNH is a great school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Do you want to Double Major? Double minor? Triple minor? At UNH you can make it happen. Are you unsure about your major and want a lot of options to switch into? Don't worry UNH has anything I can think of. We have sick foliage, outdoorsy people, a decent greek scene ( 17% but they're a loud percentage), a legit radio station, artsy kids, activists, republicans, democrats, and any club you can think of. Also we're nice. When I tell you the people here are genuine people I really mean it. Doors are always held open, friendly introductions always spread, and there are really non judgmental vibes all around campus. This stood out to me on every visit, and everyday it's proved. Academics are moderately strong, but if you want a challenge the honors program has a lot of great opportunities for small, unique classes that surround you with like minded students who are present and eager to participate in discussions. The tuition, especially out of state is ridiculous, but I guess it teaches you to be resourceful in terms of grants and scholarship applications (like me writing this sick review with so much insightful perspective and voice.) For all I'm paying they really need to update the Paul Creative Arts Center, it's ancient, but I heard it's getting AC next semester. The new Paul Business School is incredible, and so is the Hamel Rec Center clearly the funds are in the D1. The campus is sustainable which was important to me, and it's in the top safest schools in America, (#1 in 2018, I think). Overall, I came here for location. Portsmouth is great, Seacoast New Hampshire is great, honestly the amount of high school musical jokes you can make here are great. Live free or die, Wildcats!

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.
