Friends Of UNH Hockey


The Friends of UNH Hockey is the largest athletic booster organization at the University of New Hampshire and one of the most successful in college hockey. Formed in 1972 to gather funds to purchase a new scoreboard for Snively Arena, they have been supporting the Wildcats ever since at games and through various charitable and community programs.

I was lucky enough to be contacted for this project by a college friend and fellow UNH alumni in the summer of 2009. The Friends were looking to update their web presence in conjunction with the kickoff of a new season with an eye towards publishing more information faster and easier. The best choice for this project was WordPress, an open-source blogging application that is very powerful and yet easy to use. Having a chance to develop a sports-themed website was a great experience and I’m very thankful to Friends Of UNH Hockey for the opportunity to work them.
