UNH is where I met some of the most incredible people. I've found my best friends, a group of 9 crazy, caffeine-loving, science geeks just like me. There is a group of people on campus for everyone, which is one of the things I love the most. Not only have I met my best friends, but I have met my mentors, became close with professors (which I never thought was really possible) and I have a job I love more than anything else in the world. If your biggest concern about picking a school is fit, this one will fit you no matter what (unless you're not a fan of the cold!). The academics here are very good, and all programs have incredible research opportunities. I have never had a class that was a waste of time or one in which I didn't learn something valuable. Class sizes are large, but that's part of attending a school as big as UNH. I hope you come to love UNH as much as I do!

I would not change my experience at UNH for the world. The campus community is unlike any other! I felt as though I was at home away from home while living at UNH. The community, professors, and student body worked closely together to make this feeling a priority. You never felt alone at UNH, whether you were involved in greek life, a club/organization, or sports team. The only thing I would change about UNH would be the cost of tuition, but isn't that what everyone has at the top of their list for changes in university education.
UNH is a very welcoming school, I transferred here halfway through my freshman year and had no problem finding a spot to fit in! There is a wide variety of people to meet, classes to take, and food to eat. In-state applicants that qualify for a Pell Grant also get a tuition grant from the school. One thing I would like to see change is the rising cost to attend the UNH, but the financial aid/ business services offices make it easy to work through covering expenses every semester.
