Despite transferring to UNH the second semester of his sophomore year, Cory Nitschelm ’16 didn’t miss a beat getting involved at his new school. Literally. One of the first things the Paul College graduate did to meet people was join Not Too Sharp, an all-male a cappella group that, with his help, landed a gig on “The Today Show.”
“Joining the group gave me a network of people that I grew very close to. It was one of the most rewarding experiences I had,” says Nitschelm, who served as the group’s business manager and then president.
A business major with dual options in management and information systems and business analytics who is going to work for Liberty Mutual, Nitschelm received the 2014-2015 Rookie of the Year Award from the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership. He also was president of UNH’s Information Systems Management Association and vice president of uLEAD, an organization that aids other student groups.
He tells incoming freshmen to get involved, saying, “Not only can you pursue interests outside of your major, you’ll make friends and find people you have things in common with.”
