2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Not much of a community feel at all.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: At Saint Joseph's Colle of Maine, there is a very nice gym and is close to everything. Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Applebees, Chinease food, etc is all in the area. On my days off I really enjoy going to Sebago Lake, located right behind the school, beautiful scenry.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Standish is a very small town, however the students always find things to do off- campus. Whether its traveling to Windham or the Maine Mall in South Portland to enjoy some shopping and casual dining, or going to the Old Port on a Friday night. The student activities office always has planned events to keep students busy and active.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Not too far from Portland, ME. Lots of outdoors activities with Sebago Lake and the mountains close by.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Semi Rural – Nice campus, close to skiing, swimming(on the lake), lots of arts in surrounding area,students are very welcome. There's an agreement with other area colleges that allows you to take courses that you can't get at your own college.
