I moved from Texas to Connecticut, and I love the school. It's definitely been worth my while. They accept so many different people, and it's so fun to meet new friends everyday. I've actually decided I want to finish here at the school.

The professors are awesome and are experts in their field. Most are retired from the field that they are teaching about and they care about you succeeding . There is a wide variety of clubs, recreational sports, and sports to join and play. Greek life is big for such a small school.

I would definitely pick UNH again if I had to do it all over. It's the perfect school for me, and while that's not true for everyone, I found my home here. It's my perfect fit.
