Southern New Hampshire University – Manchester, NH

See more info/photos from our visit to Southern New Hampshire University on Facebook, click here.

On the north end of Manchester, NH, beautiful sprawling campus, 10 minutes from downtown. This college was a very pleasant surprise to me, with facilities that are new and current with plenty of construction going on, as in a new state of the art engineering building. Their on line presence is one of the largest in the country, which helps support this more intimate and forward thinking residential university. If you’re heading to NH, stop by and visit. You won’t be disappointed!
