The University of New Hampshire was originally founded as a land-grant college whose mission was to shape and educate citizenry among the state’s farmers, business people and engineers. Today, the University is a land-, sea-, and space-grant university serving a growing undergraduate student body of about 11,942 and a graduate population of 2,257 in addition to 621 full-time faculty members, 86% of which have earned their doctorate degree. The University has grown into a top public research university occupying 2,600 acres of classic living and learning space, while still maintaining the look and feel of a New England liberal arts college with a faculty dedicated to teaching. UNH’s student to faculty ratio registers at 18:1 with 85% of its classes having 50 students or less.

The purpose for the grants was to establish colleges that would serve the sons and daughters Mills Hall of farming and laboring families. New Hampshire College was originally situated in Hanover, N.H. Here it was in connection with Dartmouth College before moving to Durham in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson bequeathed land and money to further the development of the college.

campus

In recent years, several of the athletic facilities have received major upgrades and improvements. In the 2012 offseason, Cowell Stadium was fitted with a brand new scoreboard while the football locker rooms were renovated as well. In the locker rooms, a new lighting system was installed while a 55-inch flat-screen TV and Fathead-designed murals featuring former players and UNH historical were added to the walls. A memorial of Todd Walker was also added in honor of the former Wildcat wide receiver. Walker suffered an untimely and heroic death March 18, 2011, in Boulder, Colo., when he stopped an attempted robbery and saved the life of a woman he was walking home. In September of 2001, the University completed a new $2.15 million track and field facility. The Jerry Azumah Performance Center, a strength and conditioning facility located in the UNH Field House, was dedicated on July 8, 2003. Renovations to the Center included the addition of 5,000 pounds of Olympic weights, 7,000 pounds of dumbbells, 14 Powerlift platform stations, 12 Hammer strength machines and an additional 15,000 pounds of weights. UNH athletics also added two $1.5 million outdoor artificial fields, Memorial Field and Bremner Field. Holloway Commons Lundholm Gymnasium has received some major overhauls, including a new playing surface, new lights, new sound system, new bleacher system, new backboards and new scoreboards. The Paul Sweet Oval was also renovated to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. In November of 1995, construction of the $27 million Recreation and Sport Complex reached completion. The Whittemore Center includes a state-of-the-art 6,500 to 7,500 seat arena for hockey, concerts and convocations, as well as a new three-level recreational sports facility within the structure that had housed the old Snively Arena. In addition to the incredible improvements of its athletic facilities, the University has upgraded and renovated a large part of its academic campus as well. The latest addition to the expanding campus is the Paul College of Business and Economics, a 115,000 square foot academic building located on Garrison Avenue. Slated for completion in January 2013, the building will feature 16 technology-rich classrooms, totaling 950 new instructional seats. There will also be 25 high-tech groups study rooms along with a two-story “Great Hall” for informal and special events. Outside of the facility, there will be a courtyard for outdoor activities and events. The building will be a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold facility, maintaining the University’s commitment to sustainable programs and facilities. The University broke ground on the project in May 2011. Thompson Hall, one of the standing historical landmarks of the University, has also been beautifully refurbished and restored. The University completed a $52 million renovation of Kingsbury Hall in October of 2007, adding 6,000 square feet of student project space for students in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, as well as a $4.5 million revamp of Hewitt Hall to expand the School of Health and Human Services. In addition, the 120,000 square foot Biological Sciences Building, Rudman Hall and the Spaulding Life Sciences Renovation project now provide state-of-the-art teaching and researching laboratories. The University also spent $15 million to complete Morse Hall, a new science and engineering building as well as $8.2 million to modernize the Memorial Union Building. The revision to the existing student union building consisted of several upgrades including top kitchen and dining facilities, two theaters, student mailboxes, lounges and meeting rooms, as well as additional retail spaces such as the University Bookstore. Additionally, the University completed construction of the new dining facility on Main Street, Holloway Commons, as well as the renovation of the Dimond Library. Combining the atmosphere of a small New England liberal arts college with the resources and opportunities of a major research university, the University of New Hampshire is a place where all students can find or create their own niche and succeed. While the Unilewis fields versity offers an extremely broad academic base with an inspiring faculty, it also provides students with thousands of opportunities to get involved, either through athletics, campus recreation, student life, or research. The University is a dynamic community that not only challenges its members academically but also expands their understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity and leads to incredible growth as students, faculty, staff, and as a community.

Rob Thompson

Head Coach • 18th Season • Maine ‘89

Head Coach Rob Thompson enters his 20th season with the University of New Hampshire men’s soccer program and his 18th as head coach. During his tenure as head coach, Thompson has posted a 131-128-50 record and has led the team to eight America East tournament berths in the last 10 seasons. Last season, the Wildcats tallied a conference record of 1-4-2 and an overall mark of 7-9-2, including a pair of victories to claim the 22nd Annual Nike Fall Classic for the third consecutive year. However, for the first time since 2005, New Hampshire did not qualify to participate in the America East tournament, bringing its impressive streak of five straight appearances to an end. In 2010, Thompson led the Wildcats all the way to the America East Championship game for the first time since 1994, posting a 9-5-6 record on the season. Despite falling 5-4 on penalty kicks to UMBC (Nov. 13) in the title game, the Wildcats held the Retrievers scoreless through regulation and both overtime periods, marking the third consecutive team they shut out in the conference tournament, as they also blanked Binghamton (Nov. 6) and Boston University (Nov. 10). The impressive mark made UNH the first team ever to record three shutouts in the conference tournament. UNH’s hot postseason run stemmed from its impressive regular season, wrapping up the year with a 7-5-5 record and a 2-3-2 mark in conference play. Despite dropping their last two games of the season, the Wildcats were unbeaten in five of their six games prior, notching back-to-back wins against Boston University (Oct. 23) and Albany (Oct. 27). As a result of their stellar play, six Wildcats received America East All-Conference honors, including Goalkeeper of the Year and the Jim Urquhart StudentAthlete of the Year award. Off the field Thompson’s student-athletes have had mirrored success. Five of Thompson’s student-athletes were named to the America East All-Academic squad for the 2011-12 year, more than any other team in the conference. Individually, three Wildcats received National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) scholar honors and Colin O’Donnell was tabbed an NSCAA Men’s College Scholar All-American, becoming the first Wildcat to received All-American status since 2005. O’Donnell also took home the America East scholar-athlete award for the second consecutive season, demonstrating continued excellence both on the field and in the classroom. Joe Corsello was just as successful, posting the best grade point average among all UNH student-athletes for the 2010-11 academic year. In 2009 Thompson guided the Wildcats to one of their best seasons to date, posting a 9-7-2 record and clinched the No. 1 seed in the America East tournament. Additionally, the ‘Cats earned their first regular-season title since 1994 and their first outright title ever. The Wildcats wrapped up their America East regular season with a 2-1 win over Binghamton University on Oct. 28. The win extended UNH’s regular-season unbeaten streak to seven games (6-0-1), as they finished the conference schedule undefeated. Moreover, it was the first time since 1997 that a team completed the conference schedule without a loss and is UNH’s best conference record since also compiling a 6-0-1 mark in 1994. Thompson and his staff took home Coaching Staff of the Year honors, while seven Wildcats received postseason accolades, including Defender of the Year and Goalkeeper of the Year. Three ‘Cats were named to the All-Conference First Team and the All-Rookie Team, while one was selected to the All-Conference Second Team. The Wildcats got off to a fast start in 2008 as they posted a 5-0-2 record to open up the season, with wins over Memphis and Massachusetts. The Wildcats kept pace the rest of the season finishing 7-7-4, including a 2-4-2 mark in America East play. UNH clinched the final playoff spot in the America East tournament as it defeated UMBC in dramatic fashion, 3-2, Oct. 29.

marty scarano Athletic Director

The 2012-13 academic year marks the 13th season Marty Scarano has served as the Director of Athletics at the University of New Hampshire. During his tenure, Scarano has heightened national exposure for UNH athletics with academics, facility renovations and programmatic advancement being top priorities. His many accomplishments played a key role in UNH being named one of the Top 20 Athletic Departments in the Country in U.S. News and World Report college athletics rankings. With a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 89 percent among its student-athletes in 2011-12, UNH ranked third in the America East Conference and fourth in the Colonial Athletic Association. The men’s soccer, women’s cross country/track, gymnastics, women’s ski, and volleyball teams all posted perfect 100 percent GSRs while five additional programs tallied scores of 90 or above. The NCAA honored four Wildcat teams for multi-year Academic Progress Rates (APRs) in the top 10 percent of all teams in its respective sports. The Wildcat men’s ice hockey team and gymnastics both recorded perfect APRs of 1,000, while the men’s outdoor track & field team tallied 997 points and women’s indoor track & field notched 995. In 2012, the football program garnered its second consecutive Academic Progress Rate Award for the Colonial Athletic Association. UNH became one of only five FCS programs in the nation to earn the title for a second straight year and the only FCS team in the country to both reach the postseason and capture an APR award in back-to-back seasons. UNH finished third in the America East Academic Cup for its third consecutive top-three finish, achieving a 3.14 cumulative grade-point average. The Wildcats had the highest number of honorees on the 2011 America East Fall Academic Honor Roll and the highest percentage of student-athletes on the 2011-12 America East Winter/Spring Academic Honor Roll. In the fall, 52 student-athletes were named to the America East Commissioner’s Honor Roll for achieving a GPA mark of 3.5 or higher while 76 student-athletes accomplished the feat on the winter/spring honor roll. Scarano has focused on moving UNH athletics into the collegiate national arena. To accomplish that goal, the University has taken on the task of hosting major NCAA championships. The Wildcat athletic department has played host to highly successful NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Northeast Regionals at the Verizon Wireless Arena (Manchester, N.H.) in 2004, 2007, 2009 and 2011 and will host again in 2013. UNH has also had the opportunity to host two NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Fours at the Whittemore Center in 2002 and 2005. In addition, UNH successfully hosted the 2007 NCAA Skiing Championships in Washington Valley as well as the 2005 NCAA Women’s Gymnastics Northeast Regional at the Whittemore Center Arena. The women’s hockey team also played in the first outdoor game in the history of NCAA women’s hockey in 2010 at the Sun Life Frozen Fenway game against Northeastern while the men’s squad played in the 2012 Sun Life Frozen Fenway game against Maine.

Mark W. Huddleston became the 19th president of the University of New Hampshire in July 2007, bringing three decades of experience in public and private education as a faculty member, dean, and senior administrator. Huddleston has been a strong advocate for increasing affordability and accessibility in higher education, and has argued that we need to rethink much of what we do to protect our core missions, and to ensure that higher education remains vital and financially sustainable in the 21st century. In February 2010, he presented a 10-year strategic plan for UNH, the result of an intensive collaboration between faculty, students, staff, alumni, and the University’s wider communities. Emphasizing innovation and entrepreneurship, the plan is helping to guide the University’s response to a historic state budget cut passed by the 2011 New Hampshire Legislature. “The strategic plan commits us to finding new ways to teach, learn, discover, create, and engage in the 21st century—and positions UNH to become a national leader in the redefinition of American higher education,” Huddleston says. Huddleston was raised in Syracuse, N.Y., and was the first member of his family ever to attend college. He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the State University of New York-Buffalo, and both a master’s degree and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He began his academic career at SUNY-Buffalo in 1977 as an assistant professor of political science. In 1980, he joined the faculty of the University of Delaware, where he served for the next 24 years. There, he chaired the Department of Political Science and International Relations and served as associate provost for international programs. In 2001, he was named dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, overseeing 45 academic departments and centers with nearly 900 full-time faculty and staff, and serving in that capacity until he was named president of Ohio Wesleyan University in 2004. An author of numerous books and articles, he has been a consultant for both the U.S. government and international organizations. He also served as an adviser in Bosnia on rebuilding financial and administrative infrastructures after the Dayton accords. Huddleston is chair of the Presidents Council of the America East Conference, an incorporator of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and a member of the Board of Trustees of the Speedway Children’s Charities. Huddleston and his wife, Emma Bricker, have three children, Andy, Kate, and Giles.

In conjunction with the coaching staff, Ciani develops individualized training programs depending on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level and current athletic ability.

2012 New Hampshire Men’s Soccer After a year of rebuilding, the University of New Hampshire men’s soccer team looks to return to the America East Championship and make a run at the conference title in 2012. The Wildcats wrapped 2011 at 7-9-2, posting their first sub .500 record since 2004. The following year in 2005, the ‘Cats scorched the competition, racking up a 9-5-3 record. Despite the loss of three talented seniors, the ‘Cats are retaining a large group of 22 veteran players and welcoming in a skilled class of eight freshmen, all of whom are poised to have a positive impact. Starting in net, Travis Worra (Lancaster, Pa.) returns after a stellar first year. He finished the year with a 7-8-2 record and posted five shutouts, including three consecutive (9/16-9/25). Kyle Lewis (North Reading, Mass.) made his first career start, resulting in a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to UMass in double overtime. Lewis had been a perfect eight-for-eight in saves until the 109th minute when UMass netted the game winnnig goal. Blake Dawn (San Marino, Calif.) will also be a key reserve in net for the ‘Cats. A solid corps of backs return to the defensive zone, including seniors Ryan McNabb (Downingtown, Pa.) and Alex Hussein (Haverhill, Mass.). McNabb made 17 appearances, with 10 of them being starts and also fired off five shots. Hussein started 16 of the 18 games that he appeared in last year and provided an offensive kick for the ‘Cats, rifling off 12 shots. Jeffrey Turner (Blandon, Pa.), the lone junior on the line, started all 18 games that the Wildcats played last year. He dished out an assist while sending off five shots, three of which were on target. Sophomore classmates Adrien Lumumba (Newfields, N.H.) and Connor Pauley (Londonderry, N.H.) both look to make a big impact on the pitch this year. Lumumba made three starts in his six appearances while Pauley did not register any time. At the midfield position, seniors Gustav Nilsson (Pixbo, Sweden), Josh Bronner (Belchertown, Mass.), Byron Greenwood (Greenland, N.H.) and midfielder/forward Charlie Roche (Haverhill, Mass.) bring plenty of depth and experience back to the line. Nilsson made 13 appearances with six of them being starts last year and also fired off four shots, all on goal. Bronner started all 17 games that he played, netting a pair of goals. One goal came in the 108th minute of overtime against Holy Cross (10/18), giving New Hampshire a 2-1 victory. Roche provided versatility on the Senior defender field, splitting time between the midfield and forward positions. Roche netted one goal last year, which proved to be the game winning goal against Dartmouth (11/1) in the season finale. Despite only seeing time in three games last season, Greenwood will still be looked upon to make a big impact when he takes the field.

Jordan Thomas

The juniors making their return to the line will consist of Ugochukwu Uche (Ann Arbor, Mich.), Robert and Steven Palumbo (Kingston, N.H.), Matthew Weinstein (Anchorage, Alaska), and Cody Cormier (Bangor, Maine).

Robert made nine starts in his 12 appearances and dished out three assists for three points. He also sent nine shots on net. Weinstein only saw action in two games while Cormier did not register any time on the pitch for the ‘Cats.

Caso will see time in both the midfield and defensive slots as he did last year. He made nine appearances with three starts in 2011 while sending off four shots on net. Bielski made a pair of starts to go along with his 10 appearances and notched one shot.

Albers (Eagan, Minn.), Andrew Chaput (Manchester, N.H.), Lukas Goerigk (Berlin, Germany), Angel Maldonado (Lennox, Calif.), Liam O’Connor (Evergreen, Colo.) and Jesus Tedula (Zaragoza, Spain) make up the group and are poised to make an immediate impact for the ‘Cats.
