A Fine Restoration Caught on Video

They’ve been hidden from view for decades, but now two murals on the walls of Hamilton Smith Hall will see the light of day again. Conservationists have been restoring the WPA-era murals, which were completed in July 1940 when Ham Smith was the university’s library. Art history graduate Corrine Long ’12 has been part of the restoration, which was funded in large part by Peter T. Paul ’67, whose godfather, George Lloyd, was one of the artists.

The College of Liberal Arts is seeking memories for a time capsule that will be entombed within the newly renovated Ham Smith during a grand re-opening celebration in September. Share your memories by Sept. 8, and then join us for the Sept. 22 grand re-opening during Homecoming and Family Weekend.

Sociology Undergrads Publish New Work

August 9, 2017

The 2017 edition of Perspectives, the UNH online undergraduate journal in sociology, is now available. A student editorial team worked with 11 fellow students to craft their papers into publishable articles for inclusion in this year’s edition.

Articles tackle topics such as racial bias, suicide and mental health, prescription stimulant use and how students’ paid jobs impact academic outcomes.

“We were overwhelmingly impressed and pleased at the high number of submissions we received from undergrads this year,” wrote the editors in their introduction. “It’s truly incredible that so many students went the extra mile to submit these papers, particularly those who worked tirelessly to complete their final year here at UNH prior to stepping out into the post-college world.”
