The University of New Hampshire (UNH) is committed to keeping students engaged and motivated for study. By creating a thriving Wildcat community and promoting a positive campus atmosphere in the heart of the US, it doesn’t take long until UNH becomes your second home.
As Victoria Dutcher, Vice President of UNH Enrollment, states, “You’re always welcome to the University of New Hampshire! On behalf of our 15,000 students, 2,000 faculty members and 140,000 alumni around the world, we are excited for you to become a Wildcat! Our campus is one of the safest in the United States and is close to beaches, lakes, mountains and still only one hour from Boston!”
Due to the university’s remarkable rankings and statistics, it’s easy to see why its international student population has doubled in the past five years. With three prime and secure campus locations, learners have the chance to study in a traditional New England town, to learn law at a Top 100 school and relish in the chance to discover the main Durham campus.
As UNH Physics student, Hanyu Jiang, explains in his International Student Profile, “One thing that I love about the University of New Hampshire is that it reminds me of home. In the town, everything is so close and easily accessible, and I enjoy the outdoor and inside swimming pools. I know that a lot of Chinese students, like me, come to study overseas and are shy to speak English and join in with things. However, UNH really helps to build on your language skills and transforms you into a confident learner!”
So, if you’re interested in joining Hanyu as a fellow Wildcat, you’ll be wanting to know about the other student facilities UNH has on offer. For sports enthusiasts, there’s a brand-new American football stadium with a 30- by 50-foot high-definition video board and multi-purpose facilities for home teams and the Wildcat community to use. If you’re more into Hockey, there’s the professional Whittemore Center and the Reggie Atkins Track & Field facility for athletes to use.
With so many networking opportunities on offer, Business Administration Wildcat, Jill Howard, is thoroughly enjoying her time at UNH. “Being at this university has expanded my network so much, I’ve been exposed to so much of the city and so many different areas where social change is happening. For example, their Semester in the City scheme has allowed me to live and work in Boston, to take classes about social innovation and it has taught me how to become a change-maker!”
Another advantage to the Wildcat lifestyle is the university’s location. By residing in the middle of everything you need, there’s never a dull moment for UNH learners! Those who love to explore nature are pleased that the campus is just 20 minutes from the 241-acre Stonehouse Pond and 25 minutes from the tranquil Odiorne Point State Park.
Since UNH is globally-known for giving back to the community, you’ll join a student network that’s positive, constructive and productive. If you take a look at the recent campaign, Celebrate 150, you’ll soon realize how effective the university’s community efforts are.
From the beginning of your Wildcat Adventure through to the end, you’ll will be considered a valued community member. It’s time to take charge of your professional ambitions and explore the possibilities at UNH.
