I love this school! I am so happy I chose to go to college here! It has a perfect balance of education, fun, and opportunity. I personally am in the Paul Business School and love it! I am learning real life things, having fun, and maintaining good grades while also being challenged in my classes. The football, soccer, and hockey games are personally my favorite sports to attend as the school spirit is so high! Food and housing here is also very good. There are so many options for every mood you are feeling; healthy and motivated but also loving comfort food. The dorms are very well sized, bigger than most other colleges I have seen. UNH has also done an outstanding job dealing with COVID-19 for the past year. In fall 2020 we were able to have a successful semester with students on campus due to their testing program they bought in such a short amount of time. I am hoping the Spring is just as successful if not better! Overall I love UNH and you should definitely consider applying!
I attended UNH through the National Student Exchange program and really liked it. There's a unique range of courses and the professors are very smart. The campus is absolutely amazing, it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. There's a ton of opportunities to join clubs and get involved too! The only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is the student demographic and lack of effort to diversify their campus. The school is overwhelmingly wealthy white students. Not to mention, it's literally built on the grounds of a deadly battle between settlers and natives in the 1600s (Oyster river massacre). I have a problem with this because it took my own curiosity on the history of this land to learn about it, a monument on campus or day of acknowledgment would be nice... Overall, great education and area, but lacking in social diversity.
When choosing a college, I knew that UNH would be the right school for me. Not only are there nice and friendly students and faculty, but the whole community is well connected. The professors and classrooms are well put together. Most of the professors are passionate about what they are teaching, making the subject matter more engaging to learn from. Living at UNH, you would feel like everything is close to each other as if the campus was smaller, but it is much bigger than you might think. UNH has some really nice dorms to live in, creating a friendly and safe environment. The campus food is some of the best that I have ever tasted, and it is great that they have a station dedicated to those who want to stay healthy. UNH have some great athletic sports, as well as having many different clubs and activities to choose from. Overall, I had a wonderful experience here at UNH!
