“I applied to the UNH Washington Center internship program and ended up working for the U.S. Marshals Service. I knew I would make really great connections if I decided to go into federal law enforcement, and what better place to be than Washington D.C.?  It was the best thing I have done through UNH to date.”

"The most worthwhile experiences I've had at UNH have been the ones where I've challenged myself. I came here thinking I'd never be a leader; now I'm happy to say I proved myself wrong. UNH showed me how growth happens outside of your comfort zone – that's a lesson that will stay with me for life."
