As an out of state student I was unsure of my decision to come to this school but I am glad I did. The campus is welcoming and safe, the faculty are professors who are currently in working in your field of study and will be more than happy to help you into the field or start a research project. They way I see it this is kind of my home away from home! This school offers great opportunities and doors to be opened you just have to look and put the effort towards it.
The Univeristy of New Haven is great. When deciding whther or not to come here, I was worried about the diversity. When I arrived and spent time here, all of my worries went away! I love this school, the only thing I wish they would consder changing would be the dining services. Other than that, I am convinced that I am getting a high quality education and I wouldnt want to be anywhere else.
Personally, I really enjoy UNH. It offers a lot of challenging yet fun classes and it makes my major worth it. The classes provide a strong background and they really focus on first hand experience. I have been able to get out of my comfort zone and accomplish many things at my university in only two years -- from becoming a tour guide to joining a co-Ed service fraternity to becoming president of one of the top 20 clubs on campus -- and above that, make plenty of friends! The university is small, yet has the feel of a big school. Sure, it may have its faults, but what university doesn't?
