4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our public safety is great. They are there whenever need them!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are here to help the students. They put in several hours of their time to help us succeed in their classes

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I only lived on campus for 1 year and it was alright.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have sports, but they are not what our school runs off of. Most students focus on academics and not the sports.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the small classes, and getting to know other students in my major. I do not like how there is often only one slot for each class and that if you don't get into it then that's to bad. I wish there was no cap on the classes and that they would take into consideration for all students that need that class

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus from sexual assault and violence. There are plenty of emergency buttons around and there are usually a bunch of people around that discourage any predators form approaching people alone. Drugs don't seem to be a problem around here. My only issue is that traffic is heavy on two roads that are necessary for people to cross everyday but a lot of drivers do not stop for students and I even saw a girl get hit by a car the 3rd or 4th week on campus. Luckily she was okay, but many drivers who are supposed to stop for crosswalks do not seem to care and just speed past making walking across alone scary now and then. Police are very passionate about giving parking and speeding tickets unfortunately. Not from personal experience or anything....

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall a good school. The only thing I would like to point out is being able to get the classes I want. As a freshman I struggled to get any classes that I wanted to do. I had a wish list of four classes and I got locked out of all of them the morning of sign-up and the only way I got into one class I wanted was because it was required my freshman year. I hope it becomes easier to get into classes for the next three years as it really did stress me out and disappoint me to not be able to get into the classes I want to be in. The good thing is that it is mostly just general studies for now but I would be very angry when I get into classes for my major and I am unable to get into material I want to learn because it is filled up or unavailable that year. Also, the teachers are great and relatable.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not tried any career services on campus besides learning a bit about work study opportunities. From what I have seen from advertisements online and around campus, there are lots of career and internship opportunities from companies. They are always advertising these opportunities so I do not feel like it would be hard to find a job or internship in the future.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have lived in two different dorms so far. I don't have much to complain about but nothing really stands about living on campus either. The roommate experience is not for me but luckily I was able to get a single and I hope I can next year as it would be important to my mental health. Most of the time it is very quiet and people are respectful of each other. The janitors always are greeting students and work very hard to keep everything clean. I appreciate their work. The only thing I would change is that they need more social events that are not happening just over the weekends, I feel that it may be convenient to most but I am not able to attend most events at these times. Also, the 3rd floor is very hot and I wish they had a way to turn off the heat just on the 3rd floor. I doubt anyone needs it up here. Next year I hope to live on the 1st or 2nd floor. Housing process is easy, but I am worried that I will not get a room I need to be comfortable living here next year.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not into sports that much, so I am not sure of what UMF has going on for athletics besides that there is a decent variety to pick from. I do however use the gym a lot and not just for PE. I wish it was a bit bigger because it often is crowded by different PE classes that limit what you are able to do for a workout.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far it is only my first year so I haven't been learning materials for my major yet but the teachers are always available to help either in person or by email. Everyone here is very friendly and make me feel comfortable when asking for help. The teachers are always passionate about their lessons and often let us know how these lessons apply to real life which makes the class seem worth attending for. As a science major, I really do like going outside, labs and doing interactive things and I hope I am able to do more of that into the future. So far, most of my classes are just general studies so it feels like high school all over again for some of them. In the next couple years, I hope to give the school a higher rating due to loving my classes because they are stuff I actually want to learn. The only reason I gave a 4 was because I feel like the required PE class is a waste of time as it interferes with fitting in a fourth class that actually gives credits.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process is fairly easy here. It's pretty smooth to get into the dorm you want. My roommate and I changed rooms mid semester and the housing staff were very helpful and quick in getting our paperwork done. The CA's, community assistants, are all very friendly, but enforce the rules to the necessary extent.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Maine at Farmington has provided me with an amazing education experience so far. The professors are all very friendly, as are advisers, and other students. I've never once felt out of place here. The campus is well integrated into the town itself and the students are just as much a part of the community as the rest of the town residents. The overwhelming majority of the people here are incredibly friendly and help to provide a positive and welcoming atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: When it comes to sports at UMF there is a lot of school spirit. My favorite part about athletics at the college is the gym. The gym is s nice and well kept and there are so many different exercises and exercise equipment for you to use. There are different exercise classes that you can attend and take part in. There are also trainers that are great and will help you reach a goal that you have set for yourself. My favorite part of the gym though is the track.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since I started at UMF my favorite experiences have been in my Early Childhood classes. The fact that the whole community of the town of Farmington is involved with the college is what makes my school unique. I'm a third generation at UMF and it has been my dream school ever since I was in the second grade. If I could do it all over again I would still choose UMF. I love UMF and all the courses and experiences and fun events that it has to offer.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel as thought it has been a great experience, being a first year I have gotten a taste of what's its like living a college life. Everyone around me is very friendly and all the teachers are always eager to help students with what ever question they have. I'm very pleased with my choice and I can't think of a better school out their that would fit the needs that my college provides.

5 College Senior

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors have been fantastic, both in class and with out of class help. Class size has mostly been small, especially in the creative writing classes which only allow 15 students per class due to work-shopping.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Careers in writing often take a while to develop successfully, but UMF has both current and former students who are selling their work.
