"It was pretty good, I had awesome professors most of the time. They loved what they taught and wanted to teach. They provided resources and insight, and were willing to help outside the classroom. I learned a lot and felt prepared to move on. However, out of state tuition is ridiculously expensive and graduation was lame."

"When I first applied to UNH, it was actually my last choice for school. I wasnt interested in going to school in New Hampshire but my guidance councelor graduated from there and convinced me to apply. I was accepted into my top choice school but couldnt afford to attend for financial reasons which forced me to attent UNH as the most reasonable out of state school. I went in with a negative attitude and assuming I wouls hate it because it wasnt my first choice. I went to UNH early through the Connect program and quickly fell in love with UNH. I was a member of the track team and an athletic training student, I was always busy with class, practice, and clinicals. I loved my classes and experience at UNH but if I could change one thing I would take more time to do more of the student activities that campus has to offer. My only negative experience with UNH was with the financial aid office that didnt seem dedicated to helping make sure students could afford to return to school. With tears in my eyes,I was almost forced to withdraw for my senior year due to finacial problems that no one took the time to try to help me with. UNH continuously raises tuition every year without adjusting your scholarships so by your senior year you may be paying an extra 8-10 thousand dollars that you werent paying for feshman year. If your not relying on financial aid to get you through school then I highly recommend UNH. If you are, you might want to rethink your chice or have a back up plan because I know many people who had to drop out or transfer out because of the rising costs. Aside from the financial stress of UNH, it was a great school and I a great experience."

"I greatly enjoyed my time at UNH and I think that I graduated with a fairly good understanding of how my degree would pertain to the types of employment I was looking for. I had one internship during my time at UNH and spent several of my semesters working for a professor in his lab. My only wish is that there was an opportunity to do a Co-Op during my studies."

"If you're looking to spend two years not having guidance or mentorship from professors who generally leave you to your own devices--before, during, and after the program--and also love the idea of an utter lack of professional development and career help, then this is the English graduate program for you. I spent two years at UNH, and the curriculum was structured such that I never was able to take a second class with another professor, which makes it very difficult to make connections that are necessary for future academic applications and job searches. Funding is limited; in my cohort, only myself and one other of the 20-odd admitted students were fully funded. And by fully funded I mean they paid us $1400 a month to teach a composition course, but luckily everyone else in your community is just as broke as you. The rest of the MA in English cohort was a studious bunch who thought the program was way more difficult than it actually was, so I'd suggest seeking out the MFAers in poetry and fiction--you might find a good non-fiction writer, but they are diamonds in the rough. If you're smart enough, seek out Petar, the theory professor, who will tell you that you are terrible writer, but will also make it clear that he respects your thinking and mind. It seems UNH values their PhD students far, far more than their MA students, so if you are interested in only a Masters degree, take the Fine Arts (D. R. & C. S. in the poetry department are especially great) route or go somewhere else. All of that said, my time at UNH holds a special place in my heart because of the community I was able to find there. You win some people-wise, you lose some career-wise."

"Tell us about your college experience.I felt the school was a great fit since most people were middle class and in a similar situation as me. Not too much school spirit and had a good mix of people.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Yes, I feel that business is the best major for what I want to do.What advice can you offer other students?Either be an engineering or business major."
