News and Announcements

Are you interested in a small class with other first year students like yourself? What if you could live in the same hall with these classmates to make it easier to make friends, create study groups, and work on group projects? What if that meant you would have more chances to spend time with that faculty member outside of class? Sound AMAZING?! In the Alexander Residential Learning Community (or RLC), you can!

For more information on this exciting new opportunity for first year students, contact Mary Faucher (mary.faucher@unh.edu) or Ruth Abelmann (ruth.abelmann@unh.edu) or call and ask for either of them at 603-862-2268.
