How does Paul College integrate first-year students into the college community and support them in finding their fit?
Paul College offers a number of programs and opportunities to make UNH home. Our FIRE Program (First-year Innovation and Research Experience) places students in small teams of about 20 students. All of these students are Paul College students and have an upperclassman peer advisor and alumni advisor. FIRE mentors help first-year students make the transition from high school to college, make friends within their major, and start to develop skills they need to be successful academically, professionally and socially.  

Paul College and residential life work together to offer a community in Stoke Hall called Paul Professional Partnership or P3. This floor is reserved for about 50 Paul College first-year students who will have a dedicated academic advisor, Paul College RA, and upper class student coaches. Joining this community is a great way to make a strong connection with peers in your major, upperclassmen in Paul College and your academic advisor.  

Along with the university, Paul College participates in the Spark Program, which is a pre-arrival program for first-year students. Arriving onto campus early is a great way to adjust to UNH in a smaller setting; connect with faculty, employers, staff, alumni, and upperclassmen; as well as learn about campus resources that students can take advantage of.  

What support is available to students within Paul College?
Paul College has professional academic advisors through the Undergraduate Programs Office. Students are assigned to an academic advisor before they step onto campus for their first day of classes. Each student’s academic advisor will help support students in their major selection, course registration, opportunities for involvement and academic challenges, and if they experience struggles in and out of the classroom.

Paul College also offers professional career counselors through the Career & Professional Success Office. Career counselors will help students craft their resume, connect them with employers, and help with the internship/job search process.
