Art History and Italian Studies Majors | Graduate Student
UNH was a place where I felt free to find what I was most passionate about. I also felt enormously supported by my professors, resident hall directors, bosses, and peers.
Classics and History Majors | Business Consultant
My name is Alex Johnson and I graduated from UNH in May 2011 with a BA in both Classics and History – I got the "Wow, so you REALLY want to teach!?" treatment – and when it comes to how I wound up in the Classics program and what I've done since, my path has been very zig-zaggy, for lack of a...
