The University of New Hampshire is excited to offer admitted students the opportunity to get a first-hand look at what being a Wildcat is all about. During the Shadow days, students are given the chance to:

  • Explore campus

  • Meet with UNH students and admissions staff

  • Attend a class with a student host

  • Eat in one of our award-winning dining facilities

Schedule of Events

  • Students will have the option to attend one of the two sessions offered per day. Students can expect to be on campus from 8 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for the first session or from 11 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for the second session. Students are only allowed to sign up for one session.
  • Upon registration, students will be matched with a current UNH student and an individualized schedule will be provided 2-3 days prior to the scheduled visit day with exact timings.  
  • UNH Admissions staff will make every effort possible to pair students based on their admitted majors or program, however, no guarantees can be made.
  • While students are participating in their shadow experience, parents/guardians and other guests will have the opportunity to explore campus or explore it on their own.  Guided tours are offered at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

**Please note, based on the extensive coordination with current students and faculty, there is no waitlist for this program.  Furthermore, if you are unable to attend we ask that you kindly notify us in advance of your scheduled shadow.
