4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus because of the people who are friendly and kind. Wildcats look out for each other. There are "blue lights" located in many locations where you press and the police go to the location. They are positioned that the blue lights are spaced apart no farther than 10 feet of each other. There are security messages sent out about recent bad events for example, a stabbing or shooting were to happen. There is not much campus crime or comments of students feeling not safe at night. I have walked many times alone home at night and felt safe or even through the woods on campus and felt fine. I do not lock my apartment door even off campus because I feel secure. UNH also provides "safe rides" for students who need a ride home if they have been drinking or do not feel safe. There are many police officers always driving around during the night.

Campus Housing: Living on campus depends on what dorm you decide to choose. The freshman dorms are good to try to get in because everyone is the same age/"in the same boat". It is nice being surrounded by those who are new to college and are trying to also find new friends. The social atmosphere is nice because the RA's will put together socials or freshmen dorm competitions. The cost of the dorm is over priced for what you receive because it can be cramped and can be dirty at times. It is convenient to live in the freshman dorms such as Williamson and Christiansen because of the dining hall that is a very short walk and has great food. The amenities include a public kitchen and clothes washer and dryer which you have to pay for unfortunately. Overall, the dorms are average and are kept clean by the maintenance. Also, the rules are strictly enforced. The off-campus housing is the better option to go.

Athletics: Athletics are a big part of the UNH community. It is what brings the whole school together and everyone is involved in them. The biggest is hockey where the student section is always filled and everyone is wearing UNH gear and are rowdy. A game you do not want to miss is against UMAINE. Our school spirit is very strong and everyday is a great day to be a wildcat.

Overall Experience: The University of New Hampshire has an overall wonderful atmosphere.The campus is beautiful and the people are kind. The professors are what make the school great. They are always willing to help and go beyond outside of the class room. You are very lucky to have the experience of attending UNH.

Health & Safety: Overall, I feel very safe on campus. I'm usually not nervous walking back to my dorm alone at night. The campus is well lit and there is a blue light system in case of an emergency.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It all depends on what dorm you live in. Avoid Stoke if you are entering as a freshman. The Sercs are beautiful, new, and air-conditioned-but good luck getting into them.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know much about Greek life at this school. Frat row holds many parties.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The hockey games are fun-the Pep Band is the best part!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the academics and the many opportunities for research and hands-on experience in your field. However, I hate that so many of the students party every weekend and even during the week. It's created a bad reputation for the school. You are sometimes looked down upon if you don't drink or party.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
