Colleges in New Hampshire
New Hampshire’s motto, “Live Free or Die,” is an homage to the Revolutionary War and the state’s status as one of the original 13 colonies. The Granite State has largely warm, humid summers, contrasted by long, cold, and snowy winters, though the southeastern section experiences milder weather because of the Atlantic Ocean. Colleges in New Hampshire are scattered throughout the state, with Dartmouth College as the oldest and most selective. There are six colleges in the University System of New Hampshire, as well as 12 private institutions, which include four Catholic-affiliated 4-year colleges and universities. The primary industry supporting New Hampshire’s economy is Smart Manufacturing/High Technology (SMHT). When it comes to state attractions, Moose Alley, Castle in the Clouds, and the Currier Museum (including the Zimmerman House) rank highly.
