2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town and city is okay. There is not much to do for a college town other than "mini" bowling.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: not a bad community some shopping available but only a few stores that specializein non food items.. lots of resturants but most are kind of pricey. the college itself offers a wide variety of programs, a student lounge and helpful staff. cost is relatively low. always activities going onaroundcampusandoff campus.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Presque Isle is a smallish town, but it is jammed packed in the town center. There are many different locally owned business. There is also any place to go out into nature and just explore.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: If you are an outdoorsy person then this campus is great for you. The area is full of scenery and the nearby parks are great for hiking, walking, and skiing.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Presque Isle Can Be Boring. There is a mall, but there is a limited amount of stores in it. We just recently got back a movie theater, but it only holds 3 or 4 movies at a time. Overall, it can be a pretty boring place, but if one is interested in Disc Golfing, there is a new course they just put up at UMPI which consists of 9 - 12 holes. Also, in the next town over, Caribou, there is a decent Disc Golf course.
