Like many of the comments, I also noticeQuite BrightPreMed and Medical
Like many of the comments, I also notice everyone here is a sheep and acts and dresses the same, women and men alike. Its like a big, judgy high school. It is hard to find unique people and academics are not rigorous enough. If you want to party or dont prioritize school, this is a place for you. However, I want to be challenged and be around a diverse community to set me up for PA school and want courses that will actually help me grow. The academics arent hard if you put a little work in. The campus IS very nice, but there isnt much to do and Ive sadly had a very depressing experience here. Im transferring out after 2 years here and can say Ill only miss 2 to 3 people. Regarding professors, some are awesome, some are not. Thats like every college, so I dont recommend listening to reviews on the professors here. It depends on each one. Also, as a biomed major, Ive found almost no opportunities regarding lab work and internships, and trust me ive tried! Sorry this is all over the place, hope it helps someone, especially an out of stater like me!

Question
I am a junior nursing student here atQuite BrightNursing
I am a junior nursing student here at UNH. This program has been beyond a negative experience. The faculty are rude, unhelpful, and unwilling to work with you. I have gone to about 6 or 7 officially scheduled meetings with faculty this semester and each one of them have told me to meet with someone else. These issues have mostly included clinical and simulation experiences, which are both unlike any other nursing school that I have ever heard of. Clinicals are a hit or miss depending on your instructor and are completely unregulated. You also have to stay at your med/surg clinical site all year, so if you have a bad experience first semester, it doesn't matter. My med/surg site is over an hour away, meaning that I have to get up at 4:30 am to be able to get there at 6:30 am. As for simulation labs, we are not taught the skills that we need to know. In other words, there isn't a skills lab where you learn how to do the skills and are then tested on them. Instead, you are just tested on your knowledge and receive a grade of either a 0 or an 100. That's right, no partial credit whatsoever. To make this experience even better, this grade is 25% or the overall med/surg clinical grade. I have friends who attend Simmons, St. Anselm's, and UMass Lowell and none of them have to go through anything like this. The grading is completely unfair and the faculty are unwilling to help. Go to another school if you can.

Question
I am a sophomore at UNH and IQuite BrightPublic Health
I am a sophomore at UNH and I love it! If you want to get involved you can. They have so many clubs here, that you can find whatever you like to do. A lot of people say that the only people that go here drink and party but that's just not true. A lot of my friends don't go out, have a ton of friends, and spend their time doing a lot of other things that they love! The campus is beautiful and not too big. I lived in Christensen freshmen year and I would definitely recommend it. All-freshmen dorms are the way to go! I think everyone can love this school if they put themselves out there and get involved! Also speech-pathology is a great major!!
