HHS Students dressed for Halloween

This learning community opportunity is available to all first-year students in the College of Health and Human Services – including those students who have selected a CHHS major and those students who are joining CHHS undeclared. CHHS first-year students participate in the Academic and Career Engagement (ACE) program. Choosing to live in this CHHS: ACE Learning Community will extend the benefits of ACE to your residential life experience. CHHS ACE uses personalized academic and career coaching and peer mentors to support academic success and the transition to UNH and CHHS. CHHS ACE also connects first-year students with others who share interests in health and human services and have goals of working to enhance the lives of individuals, families, and communities. First-year students who select to join the CHHS: ACE Learning Community will live together in McLaughlin Hall and be able to extend and expand the supports, resources, and connections of ACE.
