Since the second grade, Megan Georges ’20 has been interested in criminal justice. By the time she reached high school, she developed an interest in learning about corrections.

“My hope is to create an environment in the prison system that aids in recovering and bettering inmates, rather than just incarcerating them,” said Georges. “I understand that programs like this already exist, but I hope to make these programs more widespread and common.”

Georges will learn more about the corrections system when she joins the campus community in the fall as a member of the Class of 2020. She concedes that her college search process was stressful at times. “But finding UNH made my decision easy,” she said.

“After visiting campus, talking with the staff and learning more about the extensive criminal justice program, I moved the school to the top of my list,” she said. “By the summer before my senior year began, I knew coming to UNH was my absolute dream.”

A native of Franklin, Mass., she is looking forward to interacting with people who have the same passion. She also will be a member of the University’s women’s soccer team.

“The team and all of the students and faculty seem like one big family,” she said.

This is the second in a series that will welcome some of UNH’s newest students in the Class of 2020 who will join the UNH community in the fall. Read the first spotlight.
