The Alumni Association coordinates a variety of alumni groups, events and programs. Alumni interested in supporting study abroad or international student and scholar programming can give back to the Global Education Center by endowing or contributing to student scholarships or, mentoring or offering student internships or assisting the Center on various other areas of critical importance.
A Brief History
Study abroad alumni live in all 50 states and around the world, and UNH has graduated thousands of international students from over 100 countries. The first international student at UNH was from Bulgaria and graduated in 1886, the second in 1899 from Japan with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Since then, the international population has continued to grow, facilitating the establishment of OISS in 1954. Since 1985, students from UNH have studied abroad and have completed the International Affairs (IA) dual major or minor. From the very beginning, there has been a strong effort to keep in touch with our UNH alumni. We would love all of our alumni to stay connected with the Global Education Center by contributing an article to our newsletter or submitting a profile to UNH Tales. Another great way to keep your connection alive is by joining the Study Abroad and International Affairs alumni group or the Office of International Students and Scholars alumni group on LinkedIn.
