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 12,565 and a graduate population of 2,196 in addition to 596 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 20:1 with 85% of its classes having 50 students or less.

HISTORY As one of the most prestigious institutions in the Northeast, the University of New Hampshire has always been recognized as a leader in education and research, spanning all fields of study and uniting them through interdisciplinary programs, labs, farms, theatres, research centers, and libraries. Founded in 1866 as the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts, UNH was among the early state institutions of higher education whose formation was made possible by federal government land grants. 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. The state legislature then granted its new charter as the University of New Hampshire in 1923. The University hosts 733 international students from more than 45 countries and boasts a population of students from all 50 states. Along with over 100 majors offered, UNH encompasses seven schools and colleges that undergraduates can choose from: the College of Liberal Arts, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, School of Health and Human Services, College of Life Sciences and Agricultures, Whittemore School of Business and Economics, and the Thompson School of Applied Science.

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. The building opened in January 2013 and features 16 technology-rich classrooms, totaling 950 new instructional seats. There are 25 high-tech groups study rooms along with a twostory “Great Hall” for informal and special events. Outside of the facility, there is a courtyard for outdoor activities and events. The building is 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 • 19th Season • Maine ‘89

Head Coach Rob Thompson enters his 20th season with the University of New Hampshire men’s soccer program and his 19th as head coach. During his tenure as head coach, Thompson has posted a 138-125-56 record and has led the team to nine America East tournament berths in the last 11 seasons. In 2012, Thompson led the Wildcats to the America East finals while securing three consecutive shutouts. The squad posted an overall record of 7-7-6 and an America East mark of 2-3-2. Heading into the tournament as the fifth seed, UNH played to a grueling 5-4 penalty kick victory at Albany, followed by a 1-0 victory over top-seed Vermont. In the championship game, the Wildcats fought the Retrievers to a 0-0 battle, including two scoreless overtime periods. In the penalty kick round, UMBC topped the ‘Cats, 4-2. In 2011, 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 receive 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 clinching 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

New Hampshire had 155 honorees, which represented 72 percent of the student-athletes who competed in those seasons, an improvement of 10 percent from the previous year. Scarano has helped elevate 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, 2011 and 2013. UNH was host of the NCAA Women’s Ice Hockey Frozen Four 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 played in the first outdoor game in the history of NCAA women’s hockey in 2010 at the Sun Life Frozen Fenway game and defeated Northeastern, while the men’s squad played in the 2012 Sun Life Frozen Fenway game against Maine. Football also competed in Colonial Clash games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., in 2010 and 2011; the Wildcats were victorious on both occasions against UMass. During Scarano’s tenure, UNH teams have made 44 NCAA postseason appearances and captured 14 conference titles. Gymnastics has participated in 12 NCAA tournaments, leading all programs over that span. Men’s hockey holds a pair of Hockey East titles and has made 11 trips to the NCAA tournament, including Frozen Four appearances in 2002 and 2003. The football program has qualified for the NCAA FCS postseason for a nation-leading nine consecutive seasons and advanced to the quarterfinals six times during the streak. Women’s ice hockey has seen NCAA action five times with two Frozen Four appearances. The squad also captured consecutive Hockey East Championships from 2006-09. The field hockey team captured its second-ever America East crown in 2011 en route to its second national tournament appearance. Volleyball has made a pair of NCAA appearances after capturing back-to-back conference titles in 2002 and 2003. Women’s lacrosse has earned a pair of NCAA berths (2004, 2008), one coming after an America East championship victory in 2004. Additionally, 24 head or assistant coaches have won 65 “Coach of the Year” awards during Scarano’s tenure, ranging from conference coach of the year to New England and Northeast Regional Coach of the Year honors. Furthermore, head football coach Sean McDonnell garnered the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year by The Sports Network in 2005 after a stellar 11-2 campaign.

There has been over $10 million in capital improvements since Scarano’s hiring in the summer of 2000. In the spring of 2013, the artificial turf surface was replaced at Memorial Field, home of the Wildcat field hockey and women’s lacrosse teams. The project had an estimated cost of $850,000. The athletic training room in the UNH Field House was completely renovated over the winter break of the 2012-13 academic year. With a redesigned layout, energy-efficient lighting and stateof-the art equipment, the athletic training room is larger, more comfortable, enjoyable and efficient for student-athletes and staff. In the summer of 2013, a new scoreboard at Bremner Field, home of the UNH men’s and women’s soccer programs, was installed at a cost of $20,000. In 2012, a new scoreboard was installed at Cowell Stadium, and the football locker room received a facelift; changes included a new lighting system while a 55-inch flat-screen TV and Fathead-designed murals featuring former players and UNH historical images were added to the walls. A memorial of Todd Walker was also added in honor of the former Wildcat wide receiver who suffered an untimely and heroic death in March of 2011. In the summer of 2007, the Cowell Stadium grass field was replaced with a $1 million FieldTurf synthetic surface. As part of a $650,000 renovation project in the summer of 2011, the field turf at Bremner Field was replaced with a new surface used by many varsity teams and for student recreational activities. In the fall of 2008, the Paul Sweet Oval renovation was completed to include new surfaces, lighting, painting, infrastructure upgrades and the replacement of windows that existed in the original architecture. The total cost of the project exceeded $500,000. Additionally in 2007, a complete renovation of Lundholm Gymnasium was undertaken. The $600,000 overhaul included a new bleacher system, new scoreboards, competition baskets and other aesthetic enhancements. In 2007, Scarano was awarded the National Association of College Directors of Athletics (NACDA) AD of the Year for the FCS. Additionally, Scarano was also named the All-American Football Foundation Athletic Director of the Year for FCS football in the Northeast region. Scarano has also been an active member in the leadership of UNH’s three major conferences and was the chair of the executive committees for Atlantic 10 football, Hockey East and America East from 2003 to 2007. He also served as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee in 2005-06 and 2006-07 and is currently on the America East Executive Council. Most recently, Scarano was a member of the Hockey East restructuring team that successfully recruited Notre Dame and the University of Connecticut to the conference. Outside of athletics, Scarano is in his 11th year on the Board of Corporators at Canterbury Shaker Village, a non-profit museum located in Canterbury, N.H. Before arriving at the University of New Hampshire, Scarano held the position of Athletics Director at Colorado College from July 1996 through June 2000. During his tenure, Colorado College was ranked among the top 20 Division III programs in the Sears Cup national standings and produced several All-Americans, all-academic award winners and NCAA post-graduate scholarship recipients. Prior to his stay in Colorado Springs, Scarano worked for 13 years at Colgate University, where he served as assistant director of athletics, director of physical education, associate director, and senior associate director.

DR. MARK HUDDLESTON President

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.

Chapman is a member of the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (strength and conditioning coach certified), USA Weightlifting (certified level 1 coach), the National Strength Paul John and Conditioning Association, and he was the state director of the National Strength and ConditionC hapman C iani ing Association in North Dakota from 1991-95. In 2005, he earned the title of Master Strength and Conditioning Coach from the CSCCA. He has also authored four publications related to strength and conditioning and has trained and consulted several NFL, CFL and NHL athletes, and prospective athletes preparing for all-star games, bowl games and pre-draft testing. Prior to UNH, Chapman was the director of strength and conditioning for the University of North Dakota from 1992-2001 and served there on an interim basis during the 1991-92 season. His efforts were an integral part of a winning tradition at UND, as the football team was the Division II national champions in 2001, the men’s ice hockey team won a Division I national title in 2000 and 1997 and the women’s basketball team was the Division II national champion in 1997, 1998 and 1999.

In conjunction with the coaching staff, Ciani develops individualized training programs depending on the athlete’s initial evaluation, experience level and current athletic ability. Under Ciani’s program, improvement is not based on the weight on the bar, but rather how injury resistant the student-athlete is and his/her athletic performance. Strength and conditioning programs designed by Ciani utilize all facets of training, from conventional strength training and Olympic Weightlifting to simple conditioning and sport-specific metabolic runs that enhance the athlete’s abilities during competition. No single training style dominates the program; Ciani uses a combination of all training techniques for the total development of the student-athlete.
