Celebrating 100 Years of Nutrition Graduates

Early UNH nutrition students

In 1922, Janice Marjorie Leonard of Worcester, Massachusetts and Nathalie Emerson Marshall of Henniker, New Hampshire become the first University of New Hampshire students to earn an undergraduate degree in dietetics. Since then, more than 1,600 students have graduated with a degree in nutrition and dietetics at the University of New Hampshire.

The alumni of our Nutrition Program serve critical roles throughout New Hampshire as dietitians, educators, scientists, health care professionals and nutritionists and are committed to serving the public good. Please join us throughout 2022 as we celebrate the accomplishments and successes of all our nutrition students, faculty and staff past and present who all contribute in important ways to making our Nutrition Program one of the best places to study, conduct research, and prepare for a rewarding career.
