    Grace Morelli Diversity Ambassador
    Meet a Diversity Ambassador

    From: Shrewsbury, MA
    Major: Mathematics Education

    UNH was the only school I was looking at in New England. All the other schools were down south because I like the warmth. However, after a tour with an excellent tour guide and shadowing a student in class I knew this school was for me. Before starting classes, I joined a pre-arrival program called CONNECT which focuses on low-income, first-generation, and/or multicultural students transitioning into college. That program really made me feel like I belonged here. I am a tour guide, a researcher, former executive assistant for the United Asian Coalition, CONNECT mentor, and now a Diversity Ambassador.

    Meet a Diversity Ambassador

    From: Dover, N.H.
    Major: English

    I knew from the time I was a freshman at Dover High School that I would be attending UNH for two reasons: the beauty of the campus during the warm season and the close proximity to my family. I’ve learned a lot about myself through the opportunities granted to me here. The support I’ve received allowed me to study abroad my first year, which tremendously enhanced my experience. I’ve been involved as a Connect mentor, Diversity Student Ambassador, a member of the United Asian Coalition and more. All these experiences have made my time here worthwhile!
