University of New Hampshire has provided me with a great overall experience. When I have had questions or concerns majority of the time someone was able to help me with that problem in a reasonable amount of time. I have also been provided with a lot of great opportunities, whether that is being a part of the Honors Program or other extracurricular activities that are available to students outside of the classroom.

The sense of community at this school is amazing. Everyone knows how to have fun, but at the end of the day can get their work done. I would choose this school a million times over.
