What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus has a sense of autumn in the air, no matter what season it is. The faculty is extremely nice and the teachers give their best to the students. There are so many programs, activities, and clubs for students to do and experience the world. You can travel the world while being educated at the same time in terms of culture and your career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University has a beautiful campus. There are plenty of grassy areas to relax on in the warmer weather. The freshman housing is what you would expect, kind of cringy. The Sercs are my favorite area to live in; they are basically hotels. I do not appreciate how expensive the tuition is, however. It is certainly pricey and some of the fees are not pertinent to students if they are not incredibly involved with student activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s not an easy question to answer. The atmosphere, the students, the professors, are all exceptional. It truly feels like home, and it’s comforting and lovely to be at, during any time of year. But, the administration is the worst part. Seriously, I started out freshman year with 14,500 for financial aid, including work study. Now, I’m down to 7,500 for the entire year, and I plan on studying abroad in the spring only to save money. I’m $25,000 in debt for student loans, and all the princes are going up. It almost makes you want to drop out completely. Other than the skyrocketing tuition, housing and meal plan costs, along with a lot of faculty being cut this year, it’s not a bad school. Seriously though, it may be a public school, but it charges like a private. Get lots of scholarships, like this one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended from 2009-2013, and honestly, there used to be a coexistence between academia and a social life. Of course, the university didn’t encourage partying, though, UNH was regularly on Princeton’s Review’s list when I first arrived. Back in 2009, Greek life was boisterous, though, no, I wasn’t interested in pledging. The parties were massive, there were huge gatherings multiple nights per week, and Ballard’s, another bar, still existed. The concerts were huge, kids got scandalous, on campus comedy was successful, there were busy open mic nights... the hockey games were always teetering on being out of control. The student section was rambunctious and vulgar, a bunch of hooligans, it was amazing. Homecoming was unbelievable, Halloween was as wild as anyone could imagine, and cinco de mayo was consistently the celebration that out of state kids would literally travel to come enjoy. The community was rowdy, but bonded. There were some incredible memories made. Social capital is something that is worth more in this world than it is credited for, and kids pulled each other out of their shells and had a college experience. Well, in other news, in 2009-2012, Concord cut funding to UNH by over 75% I believe, citing that the administration was fiscally irresponsible, and needed to correct itself; UNH, lead by Mark Huddleston, basically flipped a middle finger to Concord, and put the budget on the backs of the students, for a time, becoming the most expensive public school in the nation for out of state students, with annual hikes in costs. The UNH faculty led a majority to a ‘No-Confidence’ vote against Huddleston as President of the university, but he refused to step down, and instead, increased his salary. UNH police grew and expanded, would arrest kids for a myriad of minor victimless offenses (in forests, marijuana or beer usually, wow, so harmful), Greek life was consistently cracked down upon by the university and by police, continuously citing “anonymous noise complaints”, and “fire code infractions,” Ballard’s was closed and turned into a subway and coffee shop. ID Cards restricted student access campus wide. The New England center closed and became built up student housing, Homecoming became a ticketed event, Political Correctness went way too far, even deeming the word “American” as “problematic”, gaining national media attention, inexpensive apartments were destroyed and expensive suites were erected... the police began deploying a riot squad to fire pepperballs and teargas at outdoor student gatherings... it goes on and on. They drove a freaking sword through the soul of that university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UNH is a prideful school with good, smart people. People are nice, campus is pretty and the facilities are kept up. The gym is great and a lot of people go...there is a good amount of athletes, greek life and just normal people. The tuition is too high and a lot of people do have to leave. Also the freshmen dorms suck and it can be hard for people to make friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am overall impressed with UNH. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the University and feel that I will be well prepared for life after college. I haven't had any trouble with professors, the food is to par and the services on campus are helpful. The worst part about school is commuting; the parking passes are so expensive and the university gives tickets to everyone, even to people who haven't made any violations. The parking lots are always full and finding a parking spot is difficult, even at 9:30 in the morning. On top of that, one also has to pay to park in visitor lots 7 days a week from 7:00am-9:00pm, as if the university doesn't make enough money from passes and hourly passes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of New Hampshire is a fine school overall. The faculty are accessible and helpful overall. However, some departments are lacking in organization. Some people are not very responsive via email. There is a huge party scene but it is easy to avoid. I have gotten a solid education and done some valuable, interesting research.

University of New Hampshire is an excellent college. People are friendly, classes are interesting and fun, and professors are extremely helpful. I feel safe wherever I go, and there's always something exciting happening on campus, whether it's a hockey game or a musical. I love this school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly love attending the University of New Hampshire. From day one, I have felt at home and welcome and I cannot picture myself anywhere else. One of my biggest worries before attending college was that I would feel alone or that I made a mistake in picking the school that I did. I can say with certainty that, these were worries that I never felt for long. I have never felt alone while being at UNH, I have met some of the best people and the greatest of friends. I also don't feel that I made a mistake at all. So far, I have had nothing but a positive experience in terms of academics and professors. I have learned so much and within my major, I have been able to divulge further into detail. I have never been so excited for my future and career someday. Many of the professors are so kind and so approachable outside of the class. There is a common feeling of success- both the students want to succeed and we are supported by the professors who too, want us to do well. In terms of extra curricular options, UNH is flooded with a plethora of them. Neve once on campus have I ever been bored. There are so many clubs students can join, there are many student work opportunities, and on the weekends and throughout the week there are events to attend such as comedians, a cappella or performance groups, bingo, many sporting events, exercise classes to attend and so much more. The dorms and on campus living is also something that I have had nothing but a positive experience with. For the most part the dorms are clean and well kept. We have three on campus dining halls, all of which have many options for food- including options for people with allergies or eating preferences. You also have the ability with any of the dining halls, to swipe in as many times a day you would like, making it so you cane at at your desired time and never go hungry. As I look back on just my short time here at UNH, I am so happy with it all and I greatly look forward to my remaining time here. Choosing to attend UNH is the best decision I have ever made and I encourage many other people to make the same one.
