Your Results

Mostly As: The Independent Future Wildcat

You’re excited to be on your own in college and Admitted Student Visit Day is your time to practice doing just that! Take the lead on determining your schedule for the day and choose academic sessions to attend and resource fair representatives to speak with based on what you’re excited about and where you see yourself in college. Consider taking time after scheduled events have ended to grab a map and keep exploring campus on your own and end your day with dinner and shopping in downtown Durham.

Mostly Bs: The Community-Oriented Future Wildcat

You can’t wait to make friends and bring people together on campus and Admitted Student Visit Day is your time to start! Remember that most other admitted students also don’t know anyone and getting to know them can help you feel more grounded and give you a chance to commiserate about the college decision process. Throughout your day, try to get to know other admitted students and be sure to ask about student organizations and involvement at the resource fair. You can also learn more about roommates and residence life communities from residential life.

Mostly Cs: The Future Academic Explorer

You can’t wait to get into the classroom (and outside of the classroom!) to dive deeper into your major. Admitted Student Visit Day is your chance to ask all the specific questions you have about classes, research and more at UNH. Bring something to take notes during academic sessions/visits and come up with a list of questions ahead of time to ask. Take note of where you’ll be learning and studying during the campus tour and grab a map afterwards to keep exploring the academic areas you’ll frequent as a UNH student.

Mostly Ds: “This is My Future Home!”

You can’t wait to call UNH your home, from becoming a part of a residence hall community, to setting up your room, to eating at the dining halls. Admitted Student Visit Day is your chance to close your eyes and picture this campus as your future home. Plan where you’ll study, hang out and relax during a tour led by a current student. Ask all your questions about making your residence hall feel like home during a residence life tour and presentation. Take the opportunity to eat at the dining hall on campus to preview your favorite meals!

Mostly Es: The Active Future Wildcat

You can’t wait to be active on campus, whether as a student-athlete or through club/ intramural sports and other recreation options. Check out Wildcat Stadium, Hamel Recreation Center and The Whitt during or after your walking tour of campus. Consider exploring College Woods at the end of the day. Take time during the resource fair to learn about active student organizations and if you are a student-athlete, ask current students about advice for balancing schoolwork and athletics.
