Alumni Tale: Arielle Marquis ’14

What did you study at UNH?


What were you doing 1 year out of college?

I was working as a paraprofessional with kids who have severe emotional and behavioral issues at a local school. I was also in the process of applying to graduate school for social work!

What are you doing now?

I am a first year graduate student at Boston University School of Social Work! I intern at a school in Peabody, MA and also work part time in my hometown of Somersworth, as a substitute teacher!

How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

UNH is such an amazing school and was so crucial in preparing me for success in graduate school. The internship I completed during my senior year at UNH, as well as my advisor and professors in the psychology department, all helped me clarify that social work was the path I wanted to pursue!

Why do you believe in UNH?

To say I LOVE UNH is an understatement! My time at UNH was filled with so many wonderful experiences and memories that I will cherish forever. No matter where life takes me, UNH will always be my home and I will forever be a Wildcat!
