Explore UNH: A New Campus Visitor’s Guide for University of New Haven

February 6, 2013: In response to the growing popularity of mobile devices, University of New Haven today introduced Explore UNH, a complete mobile  guide for prospective students, alumni, and visitors to campus. “Students expect an innovative, progressive campus like University of New Haven to have a strong mobile presence” commented Kevin Phillips, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management.  “Explore UNH was designed with our prospective students in mind and showcases our university beautifully.” Explore UNH provides relevant information about attending University of New Haven, including majors, student life, residence halls, dining, and mobile forms to receive additional information.  The app also serves as an on-campus guide by providing directions for parking, building-to-building walking directions, history and information on each building and campus locale.  It also is a tool to help prospective students apply to UNH and explore their future lives on campus. The Explore UNH mobile guide is divided into five categories: Welcome, Visit, Apply, Explore, and Connect.   Each section was carefully crafted to highlight UNH and allow the admissions department to be with a prospective candidate prior to and after their campus visit.  The mobile guide is also ideal for visiting alumni and conference goers to familiarize themselves with the campus.          Explore UNH was published by Smart College Visit, Inc, in partnership with University of New Haven and is available free of charge in the iTunes and Google Play Stores.

Smart Learning: Forensic Science at University of New Haven

A High-Tech Learning Advantage By Su Clauson-Wicker Cue the music: Whoooo are you? Who Who?   Who Who? I really want to know… Forensic Science students at the University of New Haven want to know, too, especially when it comes to expanding their knowledge about crime scene investigation. A surge of interest, plus a high-tech learning facility, is why Forensic Science has become one of the most popular majors on campus. Getting into the right program and gaining experience at a leading crime laboratory is crucial to building a career in forensics and the University of New Haven’s Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences is just the place to begin. The Forensic Science program was founded by the internationally renowned Henry C. Lee, who has been involved such high profile cases as the O.J. Simpson investigation, the JonBenet Ramsey murder, and the Chandra Levy investigation. Lee and other faculty remain professionally active and current in the field. In 2010, UNH completed the new Henry C. Lee Institute, equipped with high-tech classrooms, forensics museum, and virtual crime scene labs where students step into a crime scene and experience in three dimensions the details of an actual, historical murder. Other new technology available include: ground-penetrating radar for locating bodies; a high-intensity laser to determine a bullet’s trajectory; and portable vapor detection instruments to analyze chemical and biological matter. The facility also has a cutting edge forensic crisis command center where UNH experts connect by satellite with police and other agencies to examine evidence beamed to them — thus providing help as if they were physically at the crime scene. Degree Programs Undergraduate Degrees: Forensic Science, B.S. Graduate Degrees: Forensic Science, M.S., Ph.D. See For Yourself Students interested in the Forensic Science major can sign up for an enhanced visit for a tour of the facility. “UNH provides an amazing Enhanced Visit experience when prospective families visit our campus,” says Admissions Counselor/Coordinator of Social Media and Online Recruitment Zack Rosen. The enhanced campus visit program allows prospective students the opportunity to get an up-close look at the forensic science program and their facilities. Special presentations, tours of the classrooms, and meetings with faculty are all part of the visit. Enhanced visits are held throughout the academic year; registration is required. If you can’t schedule an Enhanced Visit, UNH can also arrange for you to meet forensic science faculty members and tour the facilities during a traditional campus visit. It’s best to register ahead, so the admissions staff can accommodate your requests. Call 203.932.7319 or e-mail [email protected] to arrange a visit. The University of New Haven is a medium-sized, private...
