Driving on “off the highway” roads to get to UNH, you pass farms and quaint towns. You then realize you are in agricultural country where you see university buildings that support this. I’ve always heard that UNH is one of the most beautiful campus’s you will ever visit and it doesn’t disappoint. You know you are at a larger university, yet not too large, in a horseshoe that surrounds downtown Durham. And in the midst of it all you are in the state of NH, which is a beautiful state, more intimate and picturesque. If you haven’t been here, to the state of NH or UNH, make it a point to do so.
