A note from Denise, recently hired Adjunct Assistant Dean of Students;

Hello, allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Denise Marcoux Nelson and I am very excited to be joining the Student and Academic Services staff at the University of New Hampshire. I will serve as the Adjunct Assistant Dean of Students.  UNH, and more specifically residential life, was where I began my professional career in higher education thirty years ago.  I could not have asked for a better foundation for my life's work.  Since leaving UNH I moved to Binghamton University to work in residential life and most recently I was at the University of Southern Maine where I was the Director of Residential Life and served as the dean of students.  During that same time frame, I got married and my husband Stephen and I raised two children... well technically I suppose we are still raising them since one is a sophomore in college and the other is a sophomore in high school.  I look forward to becoming more familiar with the "new" campus, more engaged in the UNH community and to meeting many students, faculty and staff.
