Event Description:

Wildcat Friends
(ages High School Graduate to 35)

Wildcat Friends allows young adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to experience college. On Wednesdays from 3:00 – 7:00, students with disabilities come to campus to experience a class geared towards their specific interests, a recreation activity, and a dining hall experience. UNH students from the various departments are involved in activities.

The overall goal of Wildcat Friends is for young adults with disabilities to experience college in a meaningful and stimulating way that allows them to interact and make friends with college students, discover a lifelong love of learning, and have an experience that is typical of their peers. Wildcat Friends is a fee-based program with limited enrollment. There is a $400 tuition that includes a meal at Holloway Commons, Recreation time, and a class component.

To be considered for this program, participants must be involved in other Friends Project activities for at least 6-12 months. Current news and information will be published here but you can see past information at our old site for Fall 2009 through 2010, at www.wildcatfriends.blogspot.com.

This is NOT a drop in program.

Bus fair from Portsmouth to UNH is $1.50
