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.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, so I do not know much about the off campus housing. The school does provide open houses and apartment fairs for the students who are thinking about getting an apartment.

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.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus. I've never lived off campus before.

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.

College Junior

Administration: I don't have a problem with it, but then again, I've never had an issue come up where it needs to be enforced.

College Junior

Party Scene: I don't go to parties, I prefer to stay in my room with a few friends either studying or watching Netflix on off nights.

College Junior

Scholarships: I'm not sure how to rate it. I was lucky enough to have the Upward Bound program to help me get it in and get it going on time.

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.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I have not seen a part scene on campus. If anything they are most likely off campus which causes a good atmosphere for the students who stay on campus especially on the weekends.

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.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus in the dorms has been a fun experience for me. The people I live around are really nice and I have yet to experience a bad moment. The cost is not horrible compared to what it could be. The housing process was not hard at all especially if someone was changing dorm halls/rooms, it comes easily.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I personally haven't had issues with the dining hall food, but there are times when I wish there was slightly more of a variation in choices. The recent change in the Meal-Exchange Program in the Snack Bar is not only worth the value, but I feel like I eat slightly better than I did with the old plan.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus gives you the opportunity to get to know people even better and be within a close community. It's a small school, so there is high convenience to academic halls and the downtown area and I personally believe that I have had the chance to meet some amazing people I may not have made a strong connection with otherwise. I have only lived in one hall so far, but I've had the chance to see the majority of other residence halls because of friends and I think I could say that there are pros and cons to every single one. People are usually very genuinely friendly and understanding - I'd say it's usually a positive experience.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have always felt very safe!
