The first question I’m always asked is how did I find out about such a small school tucked away in such a small area in New Hampshire when I live two and half hours away in Connecticut? It sounds really simple, but it’s much more. I received a flyer in the mail about the school at the beginning of my senior year of high school. At this point, I was starting to get discouraged that I couldn’t find a school that was right for me as well as one that provided the major I desired. This one flyer came in the mail and I looked at it just like each one previous but this one caught me right away and I actually sat down, read it all the way through and more than once at that. I remember begging my mom to take me to the open house in October and we both were so happy that I was really excited about a school even before I got there.
When we arrived, we already liked what we saw. The small size and the homey feel each building had. The presentation before any kind of tours occurred was so motivating and made me feel like I could belong here and be an active contributing student, not just a person roll called by a number. The faculty and staff we met that day were all so kind. I knew I needed to be here.
Applying was such a wonderful and rewarding process. I had help from a really great admission counselor, Chris Sumner, who answered every single question I could have possibly had and he made sure I was on the right track in the whole process. His guidance throughout the whole thing just reinforced my motivation to become a part of this school.
Now that I am a student here, a sophomore finishing up my 4th semester at the college, I cannot be more happy with the choice I made to attend here. I’ve already learned so much in not just my major, but I have learned a lot about myself and that would have never been possible if I didn’t go here and meet the people I have met in the past two years.
This school means too much to me to see it just close its doors. It’s provided so much for me in only two years and for several other people who have attended here and work here as well. I’ll stand by it always.
