I attended the University of New Hampshire during my undergrad, 2011-2015 and graduate with a Bachelors Degree in Kinesiology, in Athletic Training, and I can honestly say, I feel honored to have graduated from such an institution. The curriculum that I followed was like no other, it was 'intense' and hard but allowed me to develop more skills that I knew I could learn. I was taught to act quickly and calm in difficult situation, I was taught interpersonal skills and with so much money behind my degree, attending UNH allowed me to figure out what is important.
All the professions, no matter if they were associated with my program or not, were very helpful and understanding and encouraged office hours if someone was falling behind. I felt like someone body other than myself wanted me to succeed.
In regards to the social life, there is a lot it, and that sure is not a bad thing! I gained some of my best friends while at UNH and I couldn't be more thankful.
Review University of New Hampshire
Its a large school but it has a community feel to it. The campus is beautiful and the university is constantly hosting events and activities for students to participate in. The gen ed requirements are annoying but all schools have them. You can take an easy major with easy classes and basically buy your way to a diploma but if you are at school to learn there are many challenging classes available. Similarly there's a good party scene but also plenty of people who choose not to be involved in it. The school and your experience is pretty much what you make of it. Also the food is amazing!
My experience at the University of New Hampshire has been a great new experience. It has been overwhleming, hard, exhilarating, and stressful. I have enjoyed most of my classes so far and I am excited that I am continuing my education here. This is the most expensive in-state college in New Hampshire though so money is a really big problem for me wanting to receive my education here. As long as I can pay for it I will happily be a UNH graduate soon enough!
