College Information Session for Homeschoolers at UNH Manchester October 30

Derek Burkhardt of UNH Manchester writes: There are a number of resources to help guide students through their college experience.

To alleviate this issue, I will be hosting a financial aid and college information session specifically for local homeschoolers on behalf of UNH Manchester. The event will take place on October 30 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at 88 Commercial Street.
