”I’m the first in my family to attend college. I like that my major offers opportunities for making a difference in the community.”– Dan Colina, Social Science
Your Campus Experience
"Because I felt most at home on the campus,"
As beautiful and well-maintained as our campus is, it is also designed to encourage a sense of community. At least once a day, almost every student and professor walks down Appian Way, the broad promenade that stretches through campus.
Keene State’s campus, reported the New Hampshire Sunday News,
“has been transformed in recent years into a showplace of higher education.” Designed and laid out in the style of a traditional New England college – with ivy-covered classroom buildings, grassy commons, and brick walkways – the campus is also changing every season as new buildings and other features are built or restored, some with bold contemporary features complementing the classical architecture.
A student-designed closed loop biodiesel system, Ashuelot River cleanup, green bikes available for student use, a LEED silver certification for our Pondside III residence hall, and an arboretum that is integrated into the campus are all further examples of a commitment to awareness of, and protection of, our environment.
At any point during your exploration of Keene State, please come to campus for a visit and ask questions in person. Our tour guides are all students who know the ropes.
