Connect is a program focused on helping first-generation and multicultural students make the transition from high school to college. Through academic support, social programs, and collaborations with key UNH resources, our goal is to support students as they complete their undergraduate degree. Our secondary goal is to provide growth, development and experiences so students are adequately prepared to enter a career upon graduation. All Connect students are assigned a peer mentor to support their transition to UNH.
What it is
- An all expenses paid program that provides students with a jump start on college life. Participants will be given the opportunity to experience residential living, recreational activities, special seminars on college life, and study strategy workshops.
- Students will also receive academic support by way of educational counselors in the Center for Academic Resources and the Connect Program Coordinator.
- Peer mentors provide a social support system to students throughout their first year.
Who it's for
- Connect is designed to support the academic, professional, and cultural development of students traditionally underrepresented in higher education including multicultural, first-generation and low-income students.
When it is
- The summer portion will take place the week before freshmen move-in and Connect students will continue to participate in a variety of academic and recreational activities during the school year, as well.
