UNH Trailblazers

UNH Trailblazers logo

UNH Trailblazers is an early arrival program designed to help Wildcats who are first in their family to attend a 4-year university transition smoothly from high school to UNH. Students will get exposure to campus culture, residential life, academic skills, support resources and everything else to be successful at UNH. Participants will learn how to decipher their financial aid package and find a campus job, meet one-on-one with their academic advisor and enjoy fun, no-pressure socials with peers and some current UNH student mentors!

Trailblazers will enter their fall term with confidence, a network of support, a strong foundation for success and $250 for books. Ongoing participation during fall semester will earn another $250 for spring! By establishing relationships, building academic success skills, and learning about the UNH campus and Durham community students will be on strong footing to accomplish their academic and career goals.
