University of New Hampshire Reviews
I love the University of New Hampshire. I personally prefer a bigger campus rather than a smaller one, if you agree then this is the right college for you! There are a lot of students attending UNH, which for some may be overwhelming, but for me it means there is more diversity than most schools. With high numbers of undergraduate students, it is not hard to make friends here. There is always something to do and always opportunities to meet new people. From intramural sports, to clubs, to even simply watching a movie in the Memorial Union Building, it is impossible to be bored while at UNH! Not only is there so much to do, but the campus itself is beautiful and massive, so if you are not into watching movies or sitting around, then taking a stroll around this campus is great.
At the University of New Hampshire, the opportunities are endless to help you succeed in your career of choice. Most professors are very helpful, guiding, and experienced in their field of profession. UNH's social life is very lively, there is always an activity on campus that you could be apart of! Dorms and dining halls are a hit or miss, but it depends on how you prefer to live and eat. Everyone on campus always has a smile on their face, UNH is truly a beautiful place to be.
UNH has a very welcoming environment. I came from the south and knew absolutely no one before moving in. Now, my friends joke that i know more people than they do even though half of their high school goes to UNH with them. It is probably true though because there is so much to do on campus and i definitely took advantage of it! Sorority life is very accessible for any girl interested in meeting new people! i also play a club sport and i am in a leadership position in another club. the thing i need the most help with is paying the tuition because they are very stringent on scholarships.
