Winter White at the Whitt
It’s the night of the David Guetta Concert! My friends and I have been waiting for this much too long and I'm sure so has everyone else on campus. People are shopping for new outfits, making t-shirts, finding glow sticks, anything to stand out in the crowd. We listen to David Guetta’s latest album while getting ready, take pictures with friends, and anxiously wait for the awesome night ahead. Typically at UNH we’ve had very bright, highlighter themed concerts. For Avicci a lot of students wore neon colors, which made the Whitt have a “glow in the dark” effect. Guetta’s concert is called “Winter White Tour” meaning everyone has to wear white. Of course people jazzed up their outfits in cool ways with bright colors, feathers and sparkles as well.
The dance floor is packed with people having a great time. Everyone there is wearing something similar, a smile, and when the time finally comes for David Guetta, the crowd goes wild. Everyone dancing, and singing, and the night is still young. During some songs foam bursts out of the ceiling, almost like bubbles and at the end of the concert confetti and streamers come down as well. Photographers snap photos of us throughout the night so that we can see them on Facebook and remember what a great time we've had. This concert will definitely go down in history at UNH.
A few weeks later after recuperating from Guetta, JCole tickets are on sale! Students are anxiously camping out at the Whitt all night just to keep their spot in line for the next morning. Not as many people were there as I had expected. And as much as I’d like to wait in line with the dedicated fans of JCole, I treasure my sleep.
Here at UNH there’s always something to do, and concerts are one of our BIGGEST things. One of my recommendations for a new student here, is to make a point to go to at least one. From exercising in the Hamel Rec Center, to watching a hockey game, to enjoying concerts, the Whittemore Center is the perfect place for all these events. It’s a good size and always accommodates us accordingly. This is the place to be. Here we go cats!

Coming to UNH was probably one of the best decisions I've made in my life so far. I grew up in Windham, NH, about 45 minutes from Durham. In Windham, I was with all the same faces my whole life, so getting away from home, but still being close was perfect for me. I’ve been able to make new friends and experience the true college life.
Originally I applied to UNH’s hospitality program, but got referred to Thompson School's Restaurant Management program instead. I wasn’t disappointed because I knew that regardless of where I was going, I was still going to UNH, and my new program was going to set me on the path to reach my ultimate dream of becoming a wedding planner.
I hope in writing these articles, students at UNH will feel inspired and also learn a little more about Thompson School. I write because it’s fun to show my creative side, and share my stories with students like myself. I hope you all enjoy!
