The housing process for freshman (or in general) can make or break your experience. I lived in Upper Quad (Devine) my freshman year and my floor was not the social atmosphere I had hoped to be in. Lots of people keep their doors closed and I am mixed with international students who barely speak English. If you're looking to make lots of friends freshman year, choose freshman only housing since I made more friends there than living with a mixture of sophomores! If you're a quiet person who doesn't want a huge social atmosphere, the Upper Quad is for you. Most dorms don't have A/C (except for newer/renovated buildings) so it can get pretty hot during the fall and spring.

I have never felt more safer on a college campus, especially at night, here at UNH. I've visited friends from other colleges and I felt sketched out there when walking at night, even with a group of my friends. There are always cops patroling the area all night, there are safety lights and alert buttons for you to press if you were ever to feel uncomfortable in your surroundings. For the most part, the campus is never quite empty which is a good thing to have because there's less of a chance of you feeling unsafe!

The one good thing about UNH and their academics is the availability of help that is provided for you. If you're struggling with a paper, you can make an appointment at the Writing Center and they will have options on hand for you to take advantage of to further advance your writing! If you're struggling in general with academics or a certain class, CFAR is there to provide you with study guides and they want to meet with you weekly to discuss the class you're struggling in.
