Overall Experience: My favorite aspect of this campus is how involved the students are, not only with the university itself, but with the entire community of Farmington.

Overall Experience: I love UMF. The professors are approachable and knowledgable, as well as there being a small student to teacher ratio. Getting in clubs and extracurriculars is also extremely easy. I am currently a part of two, Girls Talk and Bust-A-Move Beavers, a service group and dance group. My only complaint would be that some of the buildings are out of date, such as the student center, and the food is subpar.

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the University of Maine at Farmington. The faculty are really enthusiastic, educated and supportive of their students. The student population is very diverse and I have had the privilege of meeting some really wonderful people throughout my college experience. Though I do not live on campus or use the dining services I can say it is a beautiful campus with a lot to offer potential students and I have really enjoyed my time there.

Off-Campus Dining: There is your typical McDonalds and gas station food, but there is also a Gifford's- which is awesome. Down town there is a restaurant, Dunkin Donuts, and a few coffee shops. Further out there's a Subway, KFC/Taco Bell, Burger King, and a Chinese Food place. The cost is pretty cheap for fast food. Check out the Lotus by Walmart! Great service, prices, and food!

Administration: Campus Safety is awesome. The officers there are very kind and willing to talk to kids while they're doing rounds- remember that they still have to do their job though. Just because they talk to you a lot doesn't mean that you'll get any kind of special treatment. But they are pretty laid back with people who do what they're supposed to do. I have only lived in the Wellness dorm, meaning that I don't see a lot of drinking or drug use- but it has happened. I don't believe any of our policies are too strict, but they are made for our safety.

Campus Housing: I lived in one of the newer dorms and honestly, I had everything that I needed. We didn't have community style bathrooms, which was wonderful! Our janitor was the absolute best; however, the dorm bathrooms needed to be better taken care of. That is not the janitors fault, most college kids just don't know how to clean up after themselves. The housing process was a piece of cake. You got a lottery number based on you GPA, year, and credits. Farmington is always willing to help people find a way for paying, but it can get really stressful the first year with all the paperwork.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My chances of getting financial aid was very good because my family was poor and I did very well in high school. However, the process made me cry multiple times. There is no point talking on the phone, to get anything really done and explained to you, without confusion, you NEED to make a phone call for an appointment. They are all very kind there and want to help you. If you want financial aid, do well in school and participate in clubs and in your community. They want students there who will give back to the community and be active in making changes.

Campus Food: Truthfully, our dining hall is between "okay" and "bad". The only time when I am amazed by their food is when they realize the end of the year is coming and their contract needs to be re-signed. The food has made people sick, isn't always cooked well, and some workers are moved around so often to different stations that they don't do as well as others. People with allergies are worse off since we only have one fridge and small counter for ALL food allergies. The Snack Bar is overpriced, but eating there is a treat. We have something called 'snack bar points', they can only be used at the snack bar. Each point is equivalent to a dollar and your points are on your ID, which is convenient.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Honestly, I have never been to a college party. The dorms aren't very loud and they mostly consist of freshmen and sophomores, so I would bet that most of the parties take place in apartments off campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: From my experiences in the dining hall this semester, I found that the dining hall staff is very uneducated about food allergies. Also, there aren't enough options for people with food allergies. I am allergic to eggs and peanuts, and the food service workers seem not to know how serious food allergies actually are. The food options aren't labeled correctly for allergens either.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are only two places that I go out to lunch or dinner occasionally. They are both pretty decent in quality. Stone Hearth is my favorite pizza restaurant in Farmington because it has organic flour in the dough, and they have lots of healthy options to put on their flatbread pizza.

4 College Freshman

Administration: My school is fairly strict when it comes to underaged drinking and usage of drugs. I wouldn't say that is a bad quality though; it causes much less noise and cuts down on alcohol and drug related injuries.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process went very smoothly. It took a lot of time to fill out the whole application, but once it was done, the next semester was easy. All I had to do was fix a few details that changed and the rest of the application stayed the same.

Campus Housing: Living on campus at University of Maine at Farmington has been a wonderful experience for me. At first I was nervous about having to leave home to live on a college campus that was about an hour and a half from my house. Now I am very happy that I made the decision to live on campus. The social aspect of living in the dorms is greater than I could ever imagine. My first year at college I lived in a single room due to my allergies and eczema. I was afraid that living in a single would isolate me from the rest of the campus, but as it turned out, I rather liked having my single room. I was able to leave my door open when I was in my room so people could come in and say hi occasionally. Also, I took to decorating my room for the holidays, which drew people to my room. The single room didn't really matter to me because outside of my dorm, I had a fairly decent social life. When I was hanging out with my friends, we would barely hang out in the dorms anyway; we'd go hiking, or paddling, or to an event on campus. Usually I just used my room as a place to relax between classes, do my homework, and get ready for bed at night. All in all, campus live has been a wonderful experience for me so far.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The best place to order food from is Farmington House of Pizza. They deliver for orders over ten dollars. Works out really well when you have a group of friends.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food edible. I find it very hard to eat with my allergy though. I still eat in the dining all. Meal equiv. though is awesome. I can actually have dinner after a one two of class and then work.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've really enjoyed being on campus. I have freedom and independence to work things out on my own. The rooms are nice in the residence hall I live in and is kept very clean. I've actually decided to spend the money to come back next year.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some pros is that you don't have to live in one dorm room compared to an entire floor plan of an apartment but at the same time the costs don't include food like on campus. The school allows people to come in and set up tables with apartments available the next school year.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I mainly stay on campus when eating but going out to the available places is a nice change and they have decent prices along with some student discounts.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus police do a great job at making sure we have a safe community for everyone.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Finding financial aid can be hard but the financial office is good at answering any questions making it easier.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall does good to have variety in their food. There are the stations that are there everyday, and then there is the home cooked station which tends to be different everyday.
