What Students Are Saying

4.11 Average Rating
Trust your instincts and don't be afraid to ask for help. Make use of CFAR, and other academic resources that are free. Don't wait until the last two weeks of classes to try and salvage your grade, get help the second you start struggling.
Bridget from Loudon, NH
Prospective students should seriously consider UNH due to its variety of oppurtunites and beautiful campus. UNH is great for pretty much anything you might ever be interested in. Everyone is thrilled to be here and we all take pride in calling this place our home. When it comes time for break or graduation, the common reaction for students is that they never want to leave. UNH is somewhere that everyone is welcome. We are all here to pursue our dreams and aspirations and we are more than ecstatic to be doing so on this campus.
Maitlyn from Litchfield, NH
As for prospective students, I would recommend taking a tour at UNH. The beauty of the campus is just icing on the cake, but it's worth seeing. Don't be afraid to ask about what kind of clubs and organizations are available, and once you attend UNH, don't be afraid to join them. Making friends is easy if you get involved, and it's completely worth your time.
Cara from NH
My main tips for prospective students are:

1) Don't worry about what residence hall you're in. Whether you're in Stoke Hall with 600 residents, a mini dorm hall with 50 residents, or an all freshman dorm, you're going to have fun!!! Make the best of what you get! There's no wrong choice. If you're in a double/triple, don't be afraid to hang with more people than just your roomate on move in day. If you're in a single, don't be afraid to go out in the lounges, make the most of your shared space with your fellow dorm mates.

2) Don't bring everything you own to college. There's no need. UNH provides almost everything you could ask for. Snacks? Go to late night or grab a meal to go at the dining halls. Printing? Go to the library. TV? Go to the lounges in your dorm. Microwave/fridge? Go to the in dorm kitchenettes. Microwaves, stoves, fridges, sinks. It's all there for you to use.

3) Don't judge people. Everyone is definitely crazy on your first day at college. Get to know everyone once they're all settled in and more comfortable being themselves before you pass them off as friends. The person you think is stuck up and crazy may end up being your best friend by the end of the first year.
Victoria from West Hartford, CT
the campus is large so expect a lot of walking or bring a bike. there are many opportunities available so be sure to take advantage of them since most are free to students. i hope you like sports since this is a big sports school; go wildcats!
Ciaira from Hillsboro, NH
Go to study groups and use the library and Center for Academic Resources in order to help manage your class assignments. Go to as may events as possible. And have Fun!
Robin from Middleburg, FL
My tips for prospective students would be to branch out! Don't be afraid to sit with some random people at dinner and strike up a conversation. Leave your door open in your dorm room, join a club! It's the best way to make friends.
Kimberly from Durham, NH
Sitting in the front in large lectures and meeting with your professors for extra help regularly will definitely help you succeed academically. This may also seem repetitive, but get involved with something on campus. It's a great way to meet friends with similar interests, since it is a relatively big school. I've never heard anything negative about UNH; it's a great university with many options and opportunities.
Emily from Boston, MA
I chose UNH because I really felt like I belonged on the campus. I visited at the end of my junior year, and it really stood out from the other schools that I applied to. Plus, Holloway Commons (HoCo) serves the best food, and is currently one of the colleges with the best food. Diverse wise, it was a little below expectations, but that was why I attended the CONNECT program, which was for students of color. I got to move into school a week early, and met most of my best friends. If I hadn’t gone here, my life would have been so much different than what I expected.
