3 College Junior

Overall Experience: When I decided where to go to school I was too afraid to go any further away from home than I did and now I'm starting to regret it. My school is great most of the time although sometimes it can be hard to meet new people, I just wish that I had been more brave and gone further away to somewhere that's not so similar to where I lived the first 17 years of my life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had great experiences with professors and courses. As long as you go to class and do the readings, you should have no trouble getting an A. Of course some courses are different than others and require extra work, but workloads are very manageable and fair.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: SHARPP is very good at getting the word out about preventing sexual assault, and luckily I myself have not had to experience working with SHARPP.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living in the SERCS. You're right next to Philly, so food is always convenient, and they're located in a quiet part of campus, so I never have to worry about falling asleep. That being said, they're also fairly close to all my classes, and even the MUB and the gym aren't too far of a walk.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life, as it's not my scene, but I do hear a lot of non-Greek life students complaining about Greek life students. It's mainly only on social media that you see that, however, so the divide isn't that noticeable or important to campus life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not a huge sports fan, I enjoy participating, but not so much watching, so I cannot speak for the sports teams, but I will say that the gym is great. The equipment is good, and they have trainers who can help students who are unfamiliar with the equipment. There are also lots of classes offered, such as zumba and yoga, that allow for students to be both active and social.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have only had positive experiences with professors at UNH. Every professor I have interacted with is dedicated towards students' success, and they do everything they can to give students the best learning experience. Professors are always available outside of class, not only during their office hours, but during times that work best for students when they cannot make office hours. It provides a sense of support that is very important during this time in a student's life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From everything that I have been exposed to so far, I love the campus. I am beyond happy that I made this decision for myself to join the UNH community.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From all of my research and meetings with advisers I believe that are setting me on the right path for success.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't been exposed to this part of campus life yet because I am new to the school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: From the tours that I have taken I can see that the buildings are in good condition and from my summer classes I have taken I can see that there is a good social atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have heard very good things about Greek life and would consider joining.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Again, I am just transferring there in the fall but from the tours I can see that they put a lot of time and effort into having good facilities.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Considering that I am just transferring to UNH and have only taken summer classes there, I really like the school. The students and staff are all very friendly and helpful and there is a great sense of community.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I generally feel very safe on campus, though it is an unspoken rule to never walk alone at night as a female. I would probably feel okay because there is always groups of people out.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some dorms are better than others, but none of them are terrible.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am not a member of a sorority, but I definitely feel intimidated by greek life sometimes. There will be nights where my friends and I are split up when trying to go to a party because they will only let in people who are involved in greek-life. I respect their choices to have mixers, but they shouldn't always shut out other people just because we aren't greek.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The school spirit is one of a kind. The cat-pack is a group of students devoted to attend EVERY sporting event at UNH. Its incredible to feel the energy at a hockey game where everyone is chanting as loud as they can, supporting our champs.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is something special about being a UNH student, surrounded by fellow wildcats who all share the same dream of getting and education and experiencing new things together. At a school of about 12,000 people, you would think things would be spread out, but I can't walk 5 minutes on campus without seeing a few familiar faces. Everyone has this love and respect for each other, and we all stick together.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Faculty is always there to help others when they are struggling in class or need help finding a path/course that they would like to take. Professors were able to fit students into their schedule with ease which helped students pass classes, etc.. There are many courses to take whether it be educational or even wine-tasting.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Through my first year of College, I went through two different jobs. The first job was working in Cable while my second one is ongoing and helps me keep in touch with organizations on campus and create events. I did not have to use the career center in person, but I set up emails which helped me get access to jobs and applications to find on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are buildings that are easily accessible that allow students to come in and talk about their experiences with sexual assault whether it be about them or about other people. Either way, people can get help easily.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My first year experience provided me with a lot of input on how to make the area cleaner. I left notes in the bathroom which actually helped people recognize that cleanliness is important. Luckily living in dorms, it is easier to talk to the cause of the problem to keep places sanitary.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not involved in social Greek life but have attended meetings for IntraVarsity Christian Greek Life as-well as Alpha Phi Omega community service fraternity. These two groups are the most accepting on campus while average Greek life is a lot more difficult to join and includes party life.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: In my first year, I played two intramural sports and solely attended hockey games. The intramural games were fun to play with friends, however other teams got too competitive and teams were unfairly placed to play with one another, especially for something meant to be a group activity. Opposite to that, the hockey games were the most intense which showed a lot of school pride for UNH.

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.
