3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus isn't big enough to have its own transit system. Everything that you need is within walking distance. If you want to explore outside of the campus, the BAT busses are a solid choice.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: NESCom does not allow students to live off campus unless they have completed 30 credits. This means if you are a junior in your first semester but failed 1 class, you will need to wait another entire semester to get off campus.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Bangor, ME is on the rebound, but more and more graduates are leaving the state for greener pastures. Most locals know students are only here for 4-5 years.

3 College Senior

Diversity: We're a pretty homogeneous campus, but we are accepting of others.

4 College Senior

Computers: While in NESCom the network is amazing, but the dorm's internet service is provided by Husson; and it blows.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I've never dealt with finding an off-campus house.

3 College Senior

Weather: It's Maine. It's cold and snowy. Don't expect sunshine and swimming pools.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Mandatory attendance policies are the norm here. If you have a class that meets once a week for 3 hours, miss it twice, and you fail automatically.

2 College Senior

Athletics: NESCom students couldn't play in the NCAA with Husson until 2011, so there are only a few student-athletes. School spirit doesn't really exist.

3 College Senior

Academics: While you'll learn how to succeed in your given field, most of the time you'll be taking generic classes that won't matter.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Though NESCom is a male dominated school, most people here are normal. There are a few strange people sometimes, but every school has that.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Security acts like a collection service for Husson University, they once gave me a parking ticket for having my pass on the wrong window.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a plethora of locally operated restaurants and eateries, as well as all the usual chains.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Most students don't use hard drugs, but party drugs are prevalent.

3 College Senior

Transportation: NESCom and Husson are on the Bangor Area Transit line, but most have their own car.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Downtown Bangor has had a resurgence of bars in the last few years. It's nice to be able to bar hop.

College Senior

Scholarships: I have no knowledge of the scholarships offered by NESCom

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: After Husson University built the new Dorm/Classroom hybrid known as the 'Living Learning Center' more students could live on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: I enjoy our radio production studios, Husson has a great free gym and pool for students. I can't complain.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our school is unique definitely because of NESCom. Many Universities have a communications department but ours is the best in the country. Companies love to hire NEScom students and we are well known to be focused hard working people.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I think the police on campus are fair and concerned for the general safety of all students.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: I have no problem getting to school I live the town over Orono. I have y own car but can rely on the bus if I need to.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is not much diversity in Maine at all. Maybe it is because we are so far North. Hence New England?

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I live off campus so I enjoy my ride to school every day and I enjoy my time while I am there learning.
