spring semester in new student programs!

Have you checked out our events calendar for spring semester? With so many helpful workshops and fun programs planned, we want to be sure that you don’t miss a thing! Take a look and mark your calendars NOW to be sure you know what’s coming up and where to find it. We hope to see you at as many events as possible this spring!

Want to attend an academic workshop, but can’t make it work with your schedule? We use the newtohamp blog to post recaps on as many things as we can to get you the information you may have missed, but may not be able to do as much blogging this spring as we have in the past. Fortunately for you, most of our workshops have been held in past semesters, and these recaps are always accessible through the blog. We’ve compiled these recaps and contact information for the facilitators for each session below, so that you can check back throughout the semester for the details you need. Happy reading!
