3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Need a car to really eat anywhere decent

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: small town with limited places to hang or eat!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: They care! They are intelligent! They make you push beyond book repetition - you learn!

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Just bad all over the USA

2 College Junior

Nightlife: Only three bars down town for 7,000+ students.... enough said

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Very quaint town with not a lot going on besides the school. Portsmouth is beautiful but a 20 minute trip. Town really lacks the 'night life' scene

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Lived in Williamson my freshman year, best experience of my life was living in freshman dorming. Met some of my best friends. I lived off-campus my sophomore year and really missed the atmosphere of the dorms.

5 College Junior

Diversity: UNH is not one of the most diverse areas. A lot of New Englanders

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: After cinco de mayo 13, cops are on top of every party. They show up with a bomb squad which is a little over the top

College Junior

Scholarships: My mother took care of my financial aid. I currently receive a sum that is very helpful

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had some good teachers and some bad. In my sophomore year, I feel like I connected more with my teachers. As a freshman, I feel like you are just a fish in the sea and teachers just want you to get through the course.

College Junior

Overall Experience: I have not explored this at UNH yet

College Junior

Majors: I have no had one

4 College Junior

Majors: Teachers thus far have played a major role. Constantly putting my best foot forward, and attaining my results. Business school has a great atmosphere that promotes hard work and motivates you to be the best student possible

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lived in the cottages this year. A little too far for my liking, but wildcat transit always was running buses. They did not run on weekends and nights which was a major let down

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Great opportunity to meet new people. Has open so many doors for me. Joined as a sophomore, wish I did it freshman year.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Best food I have ever eaten. Always something to choose from

4 College Junior

Athletics: Everyone loves the athletes. School basically revolves around them. Always fun to go to a hockey game

3 College Senior

Academics: The sociology classes offered at UNH are good, but I wish there was more variety of special topics .

Campus Strictness: The parking is very strict and almost impossible. There should be more parking space more students who commute or have there car on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: UNH has an amazing dining program with tons of options, a great staff and awesome food! They aren't always open late, which is a bummer, but when they are you know you're getting great food.

Athletics: Sports are pretty important to UNH, although mostly varsity. We are very big on fitness though and you often see people outside running, or on their way to the gym, which is usually well populated, but there is always room for a few more. Good facilities.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life plays a pretty important role in the 'party scene' at UNH, but you certainly don't have to be a part of one to partake in the festivities.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

For most students, UNH was not their first choice. However, many of these same students will tell you that they learned to appreciate UNH and its well-rounded course curriculum, spectacular seasons, local “college town” atmosphere, and myriad of activities for students of all ages. It’s safe to say that UNH is a school that caters to the needs of many different personalities. The campus also encourages students to explore all that they have to offer through many different organizations including the American Students Association, several fraternities and sororities, and the National Society of Minorities in Hospitality. Although the campus has its shortcomings in some areas, the effort of the administration is greatly evident through  renovations of several dormitories and on-campus facilities. This open and accepting environment seems to carry over to the non-student residents of Durham, as well, which is obvious, due to the amount of specials by local businesses geared toward UNH students.

The town of Durham revolves around the students and vice versa. Most students will agree that just about everyone they meet on campus has a great personality and is very good looking. This atmosphere provides a very comforting and
safe campus that genuinely leaves the college experience up to the students.
