UNH Today

Parsing Fact from Fiction

A recent survey by the University of New Hampshire looked at the public acceptance of conspiracy claims compared to statements based on scientific facts. They found only around 10% agreed with conspiracy claims and while that was low overall, it was significantly higher among certain subgroups including millennials and supporters of former President Donald Trump.

Finishing Strong

A team of UNH students worked through the night to improve its presentation at the last minute and ultimately walked away as national champions, taking first place in the E-Fest competition and the $50,000 prize that comes with it, along with the Global Impact Award and an additional $10,000 for that recognition.
