Meet Gilly Barbato
The Upper Quad Hall Director

 

gilly barbatoWhy did you become a hall director?

Fun, interactive, fast-moving, and ever-changing are just some of the many characteristics of the Hall Director position that I love! Being a Hall Director means that every day is unique; from daily tasks to developmental conversations, there is never a dull moment. Bottom line is, I became a Hall Director because I am extremely passionate about working with and for the students.

 

Why did you choose UNH?

I started my undergrad at the University of New Hampshire in 2006 and I have loved this campus ever since. I didn’t choose UNH, it chose me. There is so much to do around here from trail running to local art festivals in Portsmouth; this campus truly offers everything for anyone. The dynamic of UNH’s campus is truly unique and the overall vibes are always positive!
