A message from UNH Alumni Board President Mike Ambrose '84

I wanted to take a couple of minutes to update you on all the great developments taking place in the UNH Alumni Association. Perhaps you will find opportunities to reconnect with your alma mater and participate in some of the activities going on at UNH.

Your Alumni Board has done a great job of championing many different initiatives that continue to grow each year.  The two primary pillars of our Alumni Board strategy are to establish a national and, eventually, international presence for our Alumni Association and to connect our alumni with current students and recent graduates.
