Rachel's Story

Rachel's Story

Rachel Sabol '17 is a new member of the UNH alumni network as of last month when she graduated with a degree in biology. Although UNH was the center of her life for the last four years, it has been her home for as long as she can remember. UNH gave her the educational opportunities and confidence to begin her next chapter: pursuing a doctorate in biomedical sciences and continuing her research in cancer biology.

When she thinks back on the past four years, she often finds herself repeating the phrase, "Not everyone gets this lucky." But other students can have the same UNH experience she did, with your support.

Rachel grew up in Durham, and both of her parents work at UNH, so Wildcat values have been instilled in every fiber of her being since she was a young child. During her college search, she came to realize that no other university could live up to the standard that UNH had set for her. There was always something missing, something special that UNH had and they couldn't replace.


During her time at UNH, Rachel had the privilege to work alongside Prof. Charles Walker studying insect characteristics in the MacManes Lab, study acute myeloid leukemia in Prof. Brian Barth's lab and teach with Breakthrough Collaborative. Rachel attributes all of her accomplishments to the support of the UNH community and the resources and scholarships that were made available to her.

Rachel's story is not unique. Philanthropy has opened doors for countless UNH students who thrive because there is a community that cares about them and supports them. For Rachel, knowing that someone else believes in her has made all the difference.

To learn more about how you can provide for UNH students through current or future scholarship support, contact Assistant VP of Gift Planning & Administration, Theresa Curry at theresa.curry@unh.edu or by telephone at (603) 862-4895.
