Fun Times at the Transfer Fair!
Transfer Fair

Thirty-eight colleges and universities attended Transfer Fair 2015, held this past Tuesday, February 24 at the Student Center -- a new record!  This year’s event was sponsored by NHTI Bookstore/Follett, NHTI Veterans Club, Student Leadership Team and Student Senate.

Over 150 students came through the transfer fair!  The college reps were impressed by the students’ discussions and great questions, and were pleased with the turnout.  College representatives say this is a favorite event and they look forward to returning year after year.  During the 3-hour fair, student volunteers helped welcome college reps and orient them to the campus, and also welcomed and guided students.

Transfer Fari, SNHU tableFaculty and staff support of the event played a significant role in this success.  If you helped spread the word, or helped out in any other way, thank you!

We collected nearly 100 raffle entries.  (Not all students took part in the raffle, which required speaking with reps from at least three colleges.)  Community Social Service Certificate major Eric Miller won the Grand Prize, a $100 gift card to the NHTI Bookstore.

The following students won prizes donated by participating colleges:  Ali Abdulridha, Salma Akramy, Martin Ali, Ashley Barr, Jesse Bedard, Chelsea Bibeau, Joe Blanchette, Tiffany Cartier, Oscar Castillo, Mathew Cheney, MaryBeth Cramer, Kyle Deluca, Joshua Drummond, Brandon Duke, Timothy Field, Myranda Forsgren, Nicholas Garland, William Genest, Elisabeth Gillikin, Kayla Grant, Kelley Guimont, Lindsey Hampson, Monica Horning, Emily Jerome, Zach Joyal, Oliviah Kimball, Damian Kyden, Ronald LeBlanc, Allyson Lively, Sarah Matthews, Catherine Mernin, Ahvni Meyers, Jean Muhizi, Puja Patel, Scott Perry, Lauren Rivet, Alexis Schofield, Nancy Schofield, Jake Troy, and Jessica Vintinner-Robinson.
