As many of you attend the June Orientation sessions we want to WELCOME you to UNH.  For those of you who have a military affiliation, or will be using some form of a military education benefit we are here to support you.  Although Penny and Karen continue to work remotely you can easily reach us by phone or email.  UNH.Veterans@unh.edu or 603-862-0643. 

Take a few minutes to watch an incredible video of current UNH Army National Guard students who have recently served the state of NH during the Coronavirus.
