Personally, I really enjoy UNH. It offers a lot of challenging yet fun classes and it makes my major worth it. The classes provide a strong background and they really focus on first hand experience. I have been able to get out of my comfort zone and accomplish many things at my university in only two years -- from becoming a tour guide to joining a co-Ed service fraternity to becoming president of one of the top 20 clubs on campus -- and above that, make plenty of friends! The university is small, yet has the feel of a big school. Sure, it may have its faults, but what university doesn't?

Athletics at the University of New Haven is great when it comes to the individuals that are on the team, but overall as a team performance they are just a little above average. The NE-10 is getting stronger and recruiting foreign players and UNH tends to stick to the Americans in the states. The student involvement/fan support is not always there or even consistent. Since the gym is so far from campus it makes it difficult for students to come up to the games. The athletic facilities are stepping their game up and have improved within the past year. The athletic program is stepping up in many ways by hiring more staff and creating a better environment for athletes to excel. School spirit is very high when everyone is around to support. When we have homecoming or alumni games people actually do come out to the football games and show massive support. Things can sometimes get very intense with the spirit, but everyone shows their Charger Pride!

This is a very great university for anyone studying criminal justice or forensic science. You get what you put in at this school. Everything is not handed to you, but professors and counselors try to make sure that you are on the right track. Get yourself involved in every club that interests you. Also, study abroad the minute you are allowed because it is literally the best thing ever!
