Durham itself is quiet, However busses/trains run nonstop to everywhere. There's acres of college woods too!
Most on-campus dorms represent a theme so that everyone can feel like they belong.
The courses are hard-professors expect you to study out of class, but they have office hours and are willing to stay after class with you.
CFAR helps you find study plans, discover what kind of learner you are, and figure out how to tackle difficult classes. There's free tutoring if needed
UNH works with most study abroad programs. It's discovery credit system makes it easy for credits to transfer towards your major.
For food It's in the top 1% of USA. There's 3 dining halls as well as shops all around campus. It's unbelievable(trust me on this)
D1 Aka sports events are crazy. Football/hockey is intense; there's huge tailgate parties
Greek life and sports teams have their own houses so the parties are good.
So many clubs/orgs. It's super easy to stay active and get involved on campus.

I am currently a student here. I absolutely love it. The campus is beautiful, school pride is through the roof, dorm-life is comfortable and homey, the academics are amazing, and campus activities are abundant. The campus is also incredibly safe. The only issue I have is with First-Year Merit. The University of New Hampshire gives out very little for merit scholarships. This school definitely awards students with a lower financial status more than students with middle-class parents, even if their grades and transcript look better. Overall, amazing school!
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.
