4 College Junior

Athletics: The school spirit at UNH varies among the different sports, but overall is very high. Everyone is excited to hear how any UNH sports team is doing, even if some are more popular than others (our football team is our pride and joy).

Besides varsity sports, almost everyone I know always tries to get a team together for any of the numerous intramural sports and rec center games. While the majority of the club sports aren't quite as on par with the varsity sports, there's also quite a few that are just as big or bigger than the varsity sports (such as the men's lacrosse team).

No matter what your athletic skill level is, there's activities, programs, and equipment for you to participate in and use in the gym and rec center. It's great!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Fan support is fairly big for varsity sports, but hardly anyone goes to intramural games.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Our school is very prideful and we all support each other equally

4 College Senior

Athletics: The Rec Center is so pretty. Not sure that that's a valid assessment here but it really is nicely constructed and always kept clean. The kids who play Rec Sports, honestly go harder than those on actual UNH teams it's pretty entertaining to see how much they get into it.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I am involved in soccer intramural both indoor and outdoor. I love all athletics at my school there is no favoritism between which one is better than the other.
