The benefits of going to a large, well-established state school, such as the University of New Hampshire, are exactly what one expects—its low in-state tuition, firmly established reputation, and place in the system allow it to offer “many resources to help students out in life.” Located in tiny, beautiful Durham, the school “emphasizes research in every field, including non-science fields,” and a lot of importance is placed “on the outdoors and the environment.” The small town really fosters “lots of school spirit,” and the laid-back denizens of UNH make it known that “having a good time” is a priority in their lives: “Weekends are for the Warriors.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
