Students and the Durham community alike look forward to Jessie Doe’s Haunted House year round. This year, the theme is The Walking Dead.

The entire event is put on by residents of the hall and all admission proceeds benefit Durham’s local food pantry. Invite friends and family as you’re guided through one of UNH’s treasured traditions of fall.


Local Harvest Dinner 2015

Where? All three UNH Dining Halls (Holloway, Philbrook, Stillings)

What time? 4:30 PM


The Local Harvest Initiative is part of UNH’s strive towards sustainability. Not only is it about feasting on wholesome food, but also educating diners about supporting our local agriculture community. Savor a delicious meal at any one of the three dining halls on campus for freshly made butternut squash ravioli, and warm crisp baked with apples picked mere miles down the road.


Of course, these aren’t all the events happening this fall, so make sure you don’t miss a thing by signing up with Wildcat Link to stay connected.
