Alumni Tale: Jeremy Kassel ’18

What did you study at UNH?

History and Anthropology in the College of Liberal Arts

What were you doing 1 year out of college?

A year out of college is last December since I graduated in Dec 2017. I was working at the Wentworth Institute of Technology fundraising.

What are you doing now?

I am still at WIT working in the Annual Fund office. I run the student calling program that I started called the Leopard Line where students call Wentworth community members to fundraise. I also solicit community members myself and help with other non-phone solicitations in the office.

Did you have an international experience while at UNH?

I was able to go abroad for two weeks on the Mapping and Archaeology in Belize J-Term program with the ANTH department. This was an amazing hands-on experience where I really made what I learned in class seem more real, while being exposed to a new culture.

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

UNH gave me so many opportunities to shape me into who I am today. I became a more social leader and literally learned how to do my current job from my on-campus job at UNH Phonathon.
My time in classes made me a well-rounded thinker as well.

Why do you believe in UNH?

UNH gives opportunity to everyone no matter their background, race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. Everyone has a place at UNH and that is something that can’t be said for every school. The faculty at UNH cares about their students more than most.

Most importantly, the campus itself is amazing, beautiful, home!!!!
