The University of New Hampshire - Comments and Student Experiences|
Almost every single girl here drinks, and it is very hard to find a nice cute girl who isn't stuck up. The girls who are attractive usually fall into the trap of becoming trashy, so if you are looking for a nice girlfriend, find one early in the year.
Being a freshman, it is very hard to find parties to go to because all of the frats require that every guy has at least 4 girls to even out the ratio, so if you are having trouble meeting a ton of friends that are girls, good luck getting in. Usually the weekends are spent either walking around trying to find a party, or just hanging out with friends in the dorm. Not much else goes on since drinking is the major activity. IF YOU DO NOT DRINK, DO NOT GO HERE. You may say that I am just a bitch and need to be more outgoing and such to meet people, but I have tried that, and there are just not enough people here who are friend material that will last. The girls are very dumb, and those who aren't are usually very gross like in my major.
If that's not what you're into, I would pick a different school. Trust me when I, and other people who review, say "everyone is a bro/hoe". Could not be more true. There used to be a school-wide joke on a facebook page called "unh crushes" (where people anonymously posted comments about people they saw on campus who were bangin) and the joke was "that girl I saw in Philly today with the yoga pants, uggs, and black northface jacket". The joke being that almost every single girl there was dressed in that outfit, not exaggerating. Most girls are unbelievably dumb, even the "smart" girls are about average. They are above-averagely hot though, if that's what you're into. The guys are mostly frat guys. Thursday-Sunday the entire campus is filled with drunk people, school cops patrol the campus but only intervene if you sit down on the sidewalk (because you may be sick), other than that, they just keep on driving, even if you are OBVIOUSLY drunk and underage (which is actually kind of a good thing, if you ask me).
That being said, even though I transferred to another University, I did not hate my time at UNH. I figured my degree would be worthless (which it may) and that I wanted to make connections with people who had more to offer than booze (which was hard) so I left. I enjoyed the food, the parties, the atmosphere, but it gets old unless you are very into that sort of thing. Although, there ARE people on campus who are interested in making real connections and friendships (join some clubs and you will find them).Be warned--if you attend this University, your degree will have a hard time getting you a job. I know many senior with no jobs. That is a risk you take at any University, though. If you want to have a good time and a good college experience and don't mind so much about the empty-headed student body and easy, boring classes than this is a good school for you. I am not trying to put down UNH. It was not the best fit for me, but I know many people who are very happy there. It's really just about what you're into.
