Eddie Alhamdan '17 came all the way from Amman, Jordan, to study accounting at UNH.

“When I was on the plane coming here, a lot was going on in my mind. There was a life I left behind me and a new life about to start for me. I was very nervous, especially in my first year.”

He needn't have worried. Alhamdan graduated in May with a bachelor's degree and a spot in the leadership program at a global accounting firm in Boston. 

After four years at UNH he says, “What came true to me is more than I planned when I was flying here for the first time. All I wanted was to get a bachelor's degree, but I achieved much more than that. I’ve bettered myself, academically and personally.”
