Notable Alumni Edit Someone has made an unsubstantiated claim of a "Thomas Perry" being among notable alumni with no title/description to support this claim. Given that it is an unregistered user and that there was no title/description I am to assume it was someone adding their own name to the list, a google search for "Thomas Perry"+"University of New Hampshire"+"Alumni" turned up nothing. If user wishes to refute this please reply here. Rob McDougall 13:55, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

Should the notation on the Shoals Marine Laboratory be amended to mention that it is in conjunction with Cornell University as the Cornell University article does? Additionally, how about the creation of a "New Hampshire Wildcats" article to further cover the school's sports programs, similiar to Cornell Big Red?

durham campus[edit]

Assawyer, I'm confused by the description of the acerage you just added. Is it 300 acres of the core, 1100 other acres of the campus, and 800 acres of mostly open land to the west? If so, you might want to reword it slightly; I had trouble figured out, for example, if the 300 acres was part of the 1100 acres - DavidWBrooks 22:34, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Sorry for the confusion, I agree it was not as well worded as it could have been. I have fixed the wording and hopfully it is clearer now. Assawyer 23:47, 11 January 2006 (UTC)
Where are the other 1,300 acres, do you know? Scattered around the state, maybe? (And it seems to me there's some redundancy about explaining the size of the campus core.) - DavidWBrooks 01:32, 12 January 2006 (UTC)
I will trim it down. The other property owned by the University includes the Kingman Farm in Madbury, the Mendums Pond Recreation Area in Lee, and others I can't think of off hand. Assawyer 02:15, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Ann Weaver Hart is on her way to Temple, haven't heard about a replacement at the U yet. Rob McDougall 23:55, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Angels In America - Tony Kushner[edit]

I have heard on more than a few occasions that Angels in America was written while Tony Kushner was visiting UNH in the mid 1980s. (In fact I remember that there was some unfounded rumor he had worked on parts of it with someone at UNH a "Kip or Chip or Something"). It is verifiable that Kushner was at UNH during the 1980s because there are pictures of plays he directed downstairs in the PCAC.

I dont even know how to go about tracing this. Oo7jeep 20:09, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

UNH disambig[edit]

I punched in UNH expecting to be redirected to the University of New Hampshire page. Of course, I got the UNH disambiguation page. Of the three uses listed, New Hamp., Unh the former chemical abbreviation, and the University of New Haven, it seems New Haven is the only plausible alternative that anyone would arrive at the disambig seeking. I recommend we point UNH directly to this page, create UNH (disambiguation) for the disambig as it exists now, and put a note to that effect at the top of the University of New Hampshire page. I mean, the proper chemical abbreviation has been changed and should be upper and lower case anyway. University of New Haven, while UNH to those who live around it, is far less notable than New Hamp., and with a far shorter history. Maybe I'm being UNH-centric, but I think UNH should redirect through, and leave a disambig for those who are confused (lazy old-school chemists and those living in New Haven). I didn't want to change this without soliciting opinions, though. Thoughts? Have we been through this before? No comments on UNH talk page. Isoxyl 23:18, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

I agree with your plan. --Assawyer 23:52, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
edit: I think this is more appropriate for the UNH disambig page, not here. I disagree with your plan : ). I know what you are getting at, but 2 points. 1. The official sports name of UNH is "New Hampshire" not "UNH" (IE when you tune into ESPN it says "New Hampshire-14 Dartmouth-7". I think this is strike one against University of New Hampshire laying sole claim to UNH. Second is that both University of New Hampshire and University of New Haven referr to themselves as UNH on their websites. ( ( Oo7jeep 13:26, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
I don't think ESPN is a good source, because sports media tend to refer to state universities by their state names even when they are not normally referred to that way. For example, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst is normally called "UMass" and never called simply "Massachusetts" except in the sports media. Bostoner (talk) 01:42, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
Well, of course, redirects are here solely for convenience of users. One way to address this, that I understand has been done for other articles, is too look at what percentage of hits to UNH meant to go to University of New Hampshire or University of New Haven etc. I don't know how to do this, so I'm not sure about that. However, I believe, perhaps erroneously, that most people going to UNH mean to go here. It actually doesn't matter what UNH calls itself, this is about the utility of the encyclopedia. If you look at a lot of other redirects, they are to help the reader find their information faster. If we put a for other uses of UNH, see [[UNH (disambiguation) like for many other articles, I think those few New Haveners will find their way where they need to go. And the majority (IMHO) looking for New Hamp will find their way where they want to go.... Thoughts? Others' opinions? Isoxyl 14:38, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
Good point. I would love to see the info on clicks.Oo7jeep 16:48, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

How Selective?[edit]

Does anyone know how selective UNH is? What is the average GPA and SAT score do they require for admintance? Do they require ACT and SAT II as well? Zachorious 06:45, 13 August 2006 (UTC)


I am fixing the "Wildcat" links per WP:DPL. Looking at the team logo, i assumed what is meant is a Bobcat, and i therefor edited the link that way. If this was wrong, please see Wildcat (disambiguation) for the correct link, and edit the links in this article accordingly. - - 'twsx'talk'cont' 13:38, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:UNH Seal Blue.png[edit]

I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.
