4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are always lost of options for partying. If you are underage, don't worry about finding alcohol. It will come to you. Weed is always available, and so are lots of people to hook up with. If you are into that sort of thing.

1 College Freshman

Weather: I'm not sure if this is a regular thing or not, but this past winter was one of the worst I've ever experienced. We had weeks at a time with -20f weather.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are lots of options for sports, and great facilities to partake in them.

College Freshman

Majors: I've never had an internship on the campus yet. I hope to have one soon.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not selected a major yet. I'm finding it near impossible, and very hard to explore options.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's not the worst, but it's not the best. I wish my situation from home could be different because it might be more enjoyable, but still it's not too bad.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's not the worst in the world, and I've never run into trouble. They aren't very good at keeping track of most of it however.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They say there isn't hazing, but I've seen it first hand.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: It's present, but I've never really used it. I feel that it could be handy in a tough spot however.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security and staff are very friendly and helpful. I never feel worried to walk around at night, and the health center is always close by.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: As according to the school presented statistic, 85% of people drink. I wouldn't be surprised if more than that smoke marijuana.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Dorms are fairly decent. The only real complaint is the number of washers available. Four washers for a building of 300-400 students does not work.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The computers on campus are alright, but it is VERY IMPORTANT to have your own laptop.

3 College Student

Majors: The application process was quite easy and you heard back within a couple weeks!

3 College Student

Majors: The professors in my major aren't particularly kind or skillful teachers.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: All of the housing could use hefty renovations and some halls look like they were transported here from a russian gulag.

2 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Not a lot to do even when you get off campus! The town is cute, but too small to provide any entertainment

3 College Student

Diversity: It would be awesome if international students were housed in dorms with everyone else!

3 College Student

Scholarships: Once the fafsa was filed, it didn't take a lot of work, but it would have been nice to get a little more help!

2 College Student

Drug Safety: A lot of people use drugs recreationally and the policies in place can't stop it.

3 College Student

Athletics: Some sports are ignored, but a major source of black bear pride stems from our hockey team.

2 College Student

Weather: For the majority of the school year, you have to speed walk to class and pray you haven't lost any extremities due to frostbite when you get there!

3 College Student

Computers: The wifi networks are quite slow and disconnect without warning, but it's better than nothing.

3 College Student

Academics: The chemistry major works really well with the honors program for writing a senior thesis and doing research!

3 College Student

Greek Life: On our campus sisters stick with their sisters, and brothers with their brothers, but if you aren't a part of greek life their isn't any discrimination!

The students who offered responses regarding their overall experience at UMaine have overwhelmingly praised the University for its affect on the students who attend it. Many of the students make Maine their home, even after graduation. More in-state students remain in Maine, while more out-of-state students tend to move on to other areas, or back to their indigenous locations. The University has an abundance of assets of immeasurable value to offer to its students. There are activities and clubs for nearly every student interest. There is some organization that fits well into their majors, providing real experience within their fields to build resumes and get careers off to a head start, while tying them into a new circle of friends. The Career Center services for job placement after graduation are not only a help for current students, but they are available to students for one year at no charge after graduation.

The University of Maine prides itself on its reputation most importantly among its students, but also with its alumni. UMaine is a welcoming trip home during alumni functions and special events. Students graduating from UMaine also receive a one year complimentary membership to the University of Maine Alumni Association. Students also can purchase the licensing for only $10 to maintain their FirstClass e-mail accounts in order to stay in touch while apart from those who became close to them during their time at UMaine. Some students said that UMaine was their choice, some said it was not. Some students responded saying that they transferred to UMaine from other institutions, but nearly all of them have enjoyed their experiences at UMaine and are proud to call it their alma mater, andeven more whole-heartedly, their home.
