I am currently a junior at Husson University in Bangor, Maine. I am enrolled in the five-year Acccounting & MBA program. So far, I have loved my experience at Husson. There are plenty of opportunities for students to apply for internships and full-time jobs. The professors are very nice and they are willing to work with students to help them achieve their goals. A lot of the professors have connections with businesses in the real world, which makes it easier to find jobs. The campus is a safe environment and is located in the beautiful city of Bangor, Maine. I would definitely recommend Husson University to prospective students.

Being a member of the softball team here at Husson, I would say it's easy to tell sports are a big part of everyone's lives here. The facilities are very well maintained, and respected by both athletes and non-athletes. Our football team has a great new turf complex, where baseball and track also practice. People are welcome to use any facility even if they aren't part of a team, as long as they are respectful to the surroundings. There's always a student section at any game, and people are supporting their fellow classmates.

Campus housing is pretty good. You can either live in a sweet with three other people or go the more traditional route by living in the regular dorms sharing your space with one other person(what most freshman do). The sweets are obviously much, much nicer. The building is relatively new so everything looks clean. The rooms come with a bathroom, common room, and two bedrooms (two people in each room). The regular dorms just have the one room to share with your roommate and a communal bathroom with is pretty outdated. Regardless, I think that they are fine and I'm very happy living in them!
