Weekend Walkers

Weekend Walkers is a University-wide initiative where staff members are present on campus during weekend evenings to offer assistance to students in need of resources/support. The program, which started in 2003, is funded by a student fee and housed in Student Life. Faculty and staff who offer their services as weekend walkers wear reognizable blue coats and are readily available to serve as helpful resources to promote the health and safety of UNH students.

 

 

Who We Are

The Weekend Walkers group is made up of professional staff and faculty from a multitude of offices and departments on campus. If you are interested in getting involved with this initiative please e-mail Erica.Vazza@unh.edu for more information. We are always looking to add more staff/faculty to our mix!
