Networking with Faculty and Peers

In addition to our professional development workshops, the Graduate School also provides students with social opportunities that increase their educational experience at UNH. The goal of these programs is to increase awareness of the Graduate School and encourage students to participate in campus programs. Many of these programs are included in our Dinner & a Lecture/Movie series; students are invited to attend an educational lecture or movie held on campus and are then treated to dinner at Holloway Commons, courtesy of the Graduate School. Other examples of social programming include the Doris Kearns Goodwin Presidential Historian Lecture, the New England Astronomy Festival, Dr. Amos’s Leverage Freedom Chair Projection information session, and discounted tickets to UNH sporting events.

Dinner and a Movie/Lecture

The Dinner and a Movie/Lecture event series is a way for graduate students to network, meet new students across disciplines, and engage in a social learning experience outside of their daily routine. These events provide an opportunity for students to get together for a local movie, lecture, or show to increase their experience while at UNH. The Graduate School finds a variety of events on campus or in the local area to take graduate students to with the addition of dinner at Holloway Commons. We are always interested in graduate student input for these events, so if you see something that may be of interest to you or other graduate students, send us an email and let us know!
