Monthly Highlight

Christine Ford


Christine Ford, Undergraduate Senior, Marine, Estuarine, and Freshwater Biology, United States Air Force Veteran

Christine Ford entered the Air Force as an Airman First Class in December of 1998.  As a college graduate she was qualified to enter at the rank of Lieutenant but she chose not to.  When asked why, Christine says, "I wanted to learn how to do my job before I tried to tell someone else how to do it."  This type of reasoning is a big part of what helps Christine in her transition now from airman to student at UNH.  She describes herself as a "mature learner" who was a bit anxious when she first started attending classes.  It is precisely this adult personality that her classmates find a welcome addition in class.
