How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

My time at UNH showed me how to organize my time so I could get everything done without waiting until the last minute or panicking. Playing on the varsity soccer team while taking a pre-med courseload I was forced to prioritize my time. They call it multi-tasking now, we just called it doing all your work. No matter what happens I can stay calm and get the tasks done.

Why do you believe in UNH?

As an undergrad I didn’t realize how special it was, until my out-of-state friends told me how lucky they felt to have matriculated. At that point I realized how special the Durham campus was and remains to this day.
