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 love the environment, people, and the courses offered through my major! The location of the college is a perfect college town offering a variety of places to eat, socialize, and spend your free time. The people are very friendly and welcoming considering I came all the way from New York. Lastly, I am a nutrition major and the program they offer at UNH is very organized and professional.
