Overall Experience: In a small town so there is not a lot to do off campus. Beautiful scenery.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is only one on-campus facility and it is a four story building designed by a prison architect. It's not bad.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life at MMA includes only Alpha Phi Omega, which is a co-ed national service fraternity based off of the ideals of the boy scouts. It deals mostly with community service events and fundraising to support these events. There are very few parties and they are generally pretty low key and include only members. There is no house for it and not everyone on campus has even heard of it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school cares the most about football and basketball (as expected). The facilities reflect this. The locker rooms are highly disproportionate to the numbers of players per team. The locker room size is arranged where the more 'important' sports have larger locker rooms. Overall the facilities are great though. Students occasionally have to be encouraged to attend sports games, but participation in the sports is good. The club sports are a little less well maintained but are still pretty popular. school spirit is pretty high, however, since MMA is the major schools/teams of the sate, it gets overshadowed by the University of Maine.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When I say it's the best, I mean it's the best for me. MMA is an extremely unique school. It focuses on careers that have to do with shipping. There is the regiment, which is what makes this school militaristic, and to be clear, it is not actually the military, it only simulates it. There are many great activities associated with the regiment, such as drill team, or band. Then, if you decide to become a leader in the regiment, that has it's own great experiences. There are many division 3 sports such as cross country, football, soccer, and lacrosse. There is one division 1 sport which is sailing team, and then there are several club sports such as rugby and ultimate Frisbee. The options at the school make it so there is always something to do. The town of Castine itself where MMA is located has little to offer besides the ocean, but if you get involved in extracurricular activities you will rarely be bored. The school is comprised of about 950 students, about 120 of which are female. Most of the women here are not in the regiment, so those of us that are all get to know each other. The school really encourages each class that comes in to become close shipmates with each other (in the regiment, that is). So you are forced to make friends, and there will always be someone there to help you. The atmosphere of the school, of having shipmates, is what really makes the school worth going to. Yes, you will likely get a high paying job in the shipping industry, but knowing that where ever you go in the whole world, if you meet someone else who went to MMA, you have a friend in that person. The school has a lot to teach about living life and is awesome with hands on learning. There is no where else I would rather spend my first few years after graduating high school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The students are involved and support each other greatly.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is unique because it has a regiment program that helps you learn how to deal with stress, be leader and follow directions. I would choose mine school because it is the #1 school in the nation and has everything I want to become a Marine Engineer.
