4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They are not the stereotypical greek life boys and girls that they portray in movies.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Like I mentioned before, the weather is pretty good. Super cold in the winter but it is New Hampshire, but the spring/fall is perfect. Too windy.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I am not sure how this affects rating UNH. Everyone is unique in their own different way and I appreciate and respect every way that people can express themselves whether it is through the way they dress or anything.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Honestly, it seems like the only thing people ever focus on is trying to give out as many parking tickets as possible. Buying a parking space is very expensive as well as the parking tickets.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs such as marijuana and alcohol are very prevalent in the UNH society.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The party life is just like any other college. My motto is if you are looking for a party, you will definitely find one, however if that isn't your scene there are a billion other things to do on and around campus and you won't be bothered by the parties if you aren't in search for them.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Sometimes I get paranoid but that is natural. There are many options for students who feel unsafe such as the blue light system, the 24/7 escort system, and saferides. There are also night walkers that are available on the weekends.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I believe that most, if not all of the campus officers do a fantastic job. They are not searching to destroy every college students' life, but they must do their job and we should all understand that.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have not been specifically searching for off-campus housing yet. However, UNH does have apartment fairs that allow students to do some research if they would like to live off-campus.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I find that the transportation availability is fantastic here. I do not need a car because I can 99 percent of the time get to somewhere that I need to go, without any complications. Even if the train or bus can't get me somewhere, I can also rent out a zip car from UNH. The amtrak is a little expensive and sometimes the on campus bus system gets crowded, but those are my only complaints.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My experience is that if a problem occurs, I can call the financial aid office and ask for assistance. When speaking with someone from the office, they are very courteous and helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a student who absolutely loves sports, this was a huge factor in my decision of where to go. Student involvement intramural sports are high, with over 100 participating in a game called broomball. As for varsity sports, the two main teams we follow are hockey and football. I wish we had more fans for other sports like basketball and field hockey but I support them. Our school spirit is incredible.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: We have many computer labs located at the library as well as main spots such as the MUB. Of course I would love to have free printing, I understand we need a cost for it and my school is very cheap and efficient. The wireless connection at my school has just recently been available in every academic and residential building, so they are still working through many nooks and cranks, but it is still pretty inconsistent.

Campus Dining: Someone hand makes each one of my meals. Outside of the meal plan, eating with the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Chef is amazing. The guy is a gourmet 5 star chef, and you can tell. I live for SAE food

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid department has taken care of me.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Being apart of greek life is a great scene for nightlife. There is always a place to go and someone sober to look after you and give you rides. Rush SAE, youll thank me

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you like to work hard monday-thursday and play hard thursday-sunday. Welcome home

Transportation: The busses run constantly and have never disapointed me.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am a brother of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. We have the best house, parties and chef on campus. I never imagined being apart of greek life, now i cannot imagine my life without it. If you are a True Gentleman, Rush SAE. It will be one of, if not the best decition of your life.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not being in Greek life, there isn't much I can say. They are a presence on campus but not everyone is Greek. They hold fundraisers outside on the weekends when its nice out or other events in the MUB that are for the pubic.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It would be a great place to live, it's a very nice decent sized community but parking would be a problem and it costs a lot.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are some really good off campus places and most of them are virtually on campus because the town is a college town so you're not very far from any classes or friends.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a lot of computers on campus it's just a pain to pay to print off your papers.

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.
