The University Honors Program is comprised of students representing a range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. But you will find that all Honors Students share an inspiring intellectual curiosity, a desire to engage and explore with a distinct level of rigor, and a contagious enthusiasm and energy for all their pursuits. Our Honors Students love a challenge and you will find them holding leadership roles across the University, tackling big problems and taking advantage of all that UNH has to offer.
The University Honors Program works hard to provide its students with meaningful opportunities to enhance their academic experiences. The UHP is constantly innovating and designing new events and specialized programs, informed by current events and by student interest. We strive to create an environment where our students feel connected to one another in Honors as well as to the entire campus and local community.
We often collaborate with Hubbard Hall to bring you fun and engaging monthly events to enjoy with your Honors family.
If you have an idea for an event or program, we’d love to hear it! Honors.firstname.lastname@example.org
