I think there were both positive and negative aspects of my experience with the biology program at St. Joseph's College of ME. I loved the small class size and I definitely learned a lot! The teachers were very willing to help in any way possible to help you succeed. I was unimpressed by the lack of energy put into some classes due to teachers having taught at the school for so long and having tenure. Rumor has it, these teachers cannot be fired even if they receive bad students reviews. I wished these teachers put more effort into the classes instead of reading from the textbook or copying slideshows from online.

The computer labs always have empty seats for you to use, but the printers are incredibly slow! They are very old and need to be updated. Half of the time there is no paper to be found and the printers are jammed. You cannot rely on printing your paper in the computer lab just before the class when it is due. Also, sometimes business classes are going on in the lab and therefore you cannot use the computers at that time. The library is always available, but not open 24 hours. It gets very crowded during midterms and finals. If you plan your time accordingly and always do your work in advance, I think you could come to campus and get by fine without a computer or printer of your own, but it would definitely make everything a lot easier owning your own, especially with WiFi on campus.

They serve lobster during our weeks at school! They have hot and cold buffets available with a wide selection of choices. Granted, it is food for the masses so it may not always be restaurant quality with individually prepared meals for each person but overall it is really enjoyable. It is important to have a campus meal plan because the surrounding community does not have a lot of places to eat.
