Favorite Thing About CONNECT: The people are by far the best thing about CONNECT. I’ve met so many of my closest friends through this program and it’s so fun to go to the socials together because you’re surrounded by all your friends. 

Advice to 1st Years: Your studies are going to get a lot more serious in these next 4 years and you may find yourself under a pile of work. Don’t let your work completely take over your time at college! Find that social balance and use that time to meet new people and join student orgs. You have no idea how much your life will change every time you meet someone new.

Also, the whole community of UNH goes to the dining halls around 6PM, if you want to beat the lines, go during quirky hours (5-5:30PM or 7-7:30PM).

Fun Fact: I’ve been to 40 states by the time I was in 4th grade, and I haven’t had my first plane ride until the summer of my senior year so all of this was done by car!
