The UNH-IOL opens its doors for students on CEPS Admitted Students day for tours.

Making a decision on where to enroll for Fall 2015 is a very important choice. To help in that decision, we invite our admitted students to explore UNH at their respective college division Admitted Student Visit Day.

This day will include opportunities to meet faculty, staff, and students from the admitted students' respective college division as well as university representatives from academic and student services including housing, residential life, student organizations and more.

FIRST Robotics Competition

Thursday, January 29, 2015 - 16:45

The varsity Sport for the MindT™, FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Teams are made up of students in grades 9 – 12.
