4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my experience at UNH, it's a great school, perfect location, and the faculty and staff are the best. I only wish the tuition for out of state tuition was more affordable. I also wish more aid/scholarships were available.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The only concern I have is affording everything.

Overall Experience: The people are very nice and the academic programs are great. Although, the school has little sympathy for someone trying to come up with the large amount of money that it costs to go here. Do not let them tell you there is nothing they can do to help, there is always something.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm attending UNH on almost a full-ride. I'm in a support group for low income students like myself, and am in the Honors Program. I have a great set up and am surrounded by great people and resources. I cannot complain.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far, my overall experience at my college has been wonderful. I've had a chance to learn many things that truly apply to my career and life goals. I've had many opportunities to meet and interact people who share the same passions that I do. My teachers all have been wonderful and dedicated to educating and providing the best experience for their students. I would definitely choose my school again if I could do it all over.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: UNH has the perfect number of students and i a great distance from home, but I wish that the campus was more spread out and there was more school spirit from peers. Greek life really helped make my experience better. There are also great research opportunities for all majors and studying abroad was easy.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy that there are new people for me to meet. It is just big enough that you could never be bored, but not too big that you feel lost.

Overall Experience: UNH is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Originally it was my "safety school" and I went for financial reasons and I could not be more happy with the decision. The business school continues to push me and motivate me to work harder to earn my accounting degree. I love the people, the teachers, the classrooms, and all that the campus has to offer. I love my school, and I love being a Wildcat!

Overall Experience: UNH has an incredible Environmental Engineering department with dedicated staff and great support. However UNH as a whole could focus more on their students and less on profits and brand identity.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: UNH has been ok for me, the classes and people are good, but no one seems to know what is going on in the big picture. If any one had be able to really direct me i might not have to be applying for this scholarship

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall I am very satisfied with my college choice to attend University of New Hampshire in the Fall of 2015. When I went to freshmen orientation, the people there were very nice and welcoming. I think that it is very unique how UNH ties to bring everyone at the campus together through community activities. I would choose UNH again if I had to pick all over again.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I transferred from a different school, and this new environment was fantastic.

Off-Campus Housing: Based on my research trying to find a place for when I move it is limited to apartments and is very difficult to find something affordable.

Off-Campus Housing: I personally prefer to live on campus because of the convenience of walking to class, and home from the bars or from parties.

Party Scene: It's best when you're over 21 and can go to the bars, however there are lots of party options for underclassman.

Administration: Students are well protected, and respected.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: It's delicious! Lots of options for everyone, and conscious of allergies and food restrictions.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I was able to get a lot of financial aid based on my circumstance, however I am worried about paying it off.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The downfall of housing on campus is the expense. the cheapest housing is probably around $550 per month and they are gross, unsafe apartments that you have to share with lots of people.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall I trust campus security. They're really nice people, but they are absolutely no-nonsense with dumb freshman. One told me they send certain cars depending on if they think someone's going to puke in it or not. There was a serious incident with a stalker/peeping tom in the Upper Quad last year, but police handled it pretty well and the guy is going to prison for a few years before being deported back to China. The police presence is pretty strong on the weekends, and they really are there to help.

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.
