UNH Serves

Dozens of UNH students headed out to more than 25 different locations throughout the Seacoast and greater Manchester areas on Nov. 11 as part of UNH Serves — a day of community service to honor veterans, and also perform some good deeds for the larger community.

For some students, it was a chance to discover new attractions near the Durham campus — a group of students did yard work at the USS Albacore submarine and museum in Portsmouth, and got a free tour of the inside of the sub. Another group headed to the Woodman Museum in Dover, where they got a chance to see historical artifacts and oddities as they cleaned out the museum’s attic and prepped its Civil War room for renovation and restructuring.
