4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have not heard anything that has happened with health and safety of the students, I think because everyone knows one so nothing can get by. The only thing that may be a problem is alcohol consumption; thats what many people do, but it never impacts others safety (always someone who is the DD).

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you create your class wish list, and are able to get it approved, and then enroll at the right time so one would be able to get into the classes he/she wants. Even if one is not able to get into a class, you can talk to the professor running the class and see if they will put one more person in or put you at the top of the waiting list. The professors here really care about students. And depending on what you are studying to be, depends on the classes; but if a class or multiple classes are not offered from UMFK, there are other schools that they work with so you can take the same class online and still get the credit. There are also classes offered throughout the summer and during winter break which really helps some to get classes done and out of the way, so they can worry about the "big important" classes (nursing, forestry, etc.).

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't greatly know about this, but have heard others being able to get internships on the career they intend. I do know from multiple people that before they graduated from UMFK with a nursing degree, they already had jobs. Jobs hold the UMFK nursing at a high level.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It all depends on where you are. There are two regular dorm rooms that are all right. These dorm rooms are right on the campus are are close to classes and dinning hall. But, you have to share a bathroom. And sometimes, you can get a single room. But there is another dorm that is called the Lodge. This is one that I have been in and I love it. There are three types of rooms: triple single, a single double single, and a double. So depending on where you are the max number of people you share a room with would be four people. But, you have your own bathroom and shower, while also having your own little day room, one-two closets, and a kitchen (sink, microwave, and normal fridge). I have a single room right now and I really do like it because I can hang out with roommates, but then not have to share a bedroom with them. I have had a double suit before, and it really is not bad. But how you rate the dorms depends on where you are and how clean you keep it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I really don't know much about the Greek Life here on campus, just because it's really not a big deal. They may want you to join, but don't get bothered when you don't. There is only two Greeks on campus; one sorority and one fraternity. There really isn't housing available for the Greeks; they either live on campus, scattered around the different housings options, or, one or more have houses/apartments off campus and that is where they meet. The Greeks here don't really have a social atmosphere on campus; they have a part but are not very important to student life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: UMFK only has soccer and basketball athletics and both are very important. Everyone goes to the games and they are a fun time - you are able to get out, take a break from studying, make new friends, and hang out with friends. It's rather funny because a lot of people really get into the game, but these people will always support the team(s) and "back them up".

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Yes it is far away, but I would say that it was worth it. Some may say that they don't get enough nursing courses, but that is their fault; they make their own class schedules. UMFK is unique, just by the location; you are able to view and become accustomed to different ways. Everyone is very nice up here and are willing to have a conversation or help you out. One of my favorite things to do up here, even though I study constantly, is to go to the Snow Dog Races in the Spring and go over to Canada to go out with friends and shop. There are other things to do up here like ice skating, hiking, fishing, hunting, snow shoeing, ATV and snowmobile riding, skiing, and more if you go out and find things. I would defiantly choose this school again if I started all over just because where I want to be later in life (career), this school will teach and try their hardest to help me get to where I want to be. They care and are willing to help however they can.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Its a hunting community so the majority of people have common sense with firearms. Also we speak up when something is abnormal.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most professors are speaking and teaching from years of experience in the field and most still work in their field. Teaching is their second job.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We are taught from real work experience and know what to expect and are prepared.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Get better financial aid living on campus and the lodge is just like and appartment

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They act no different than anyone else

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I've seen better athletic facilities

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Awesome area to take a break from homework and go hunting

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The people who live in the dorm are very loud at the latest times of the night. The rooms are not very spacious. My roommate is my best friend at school, and it worked out really well to share a room with her.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is not very big on my schools campus. There is not very many people involved with the Greek life, but the group we do have is very involved with campus life. They are involved in many charity events and get other non-Greek students involved.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't participate in sports at my school, but I attend the sports events. These events are very fun to attend.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is very secluded, but it is not hard to stay busy being a nursing student. I spend most of my time studying and preparing for tests. My experience has been difficult going to school in such a new environment. I moved 3,000 miles away from home in order to have a new experience and see a different part of the country I live in. The school I chose is perfectly matched to my goals because it allows me to be in a nursing program at the start of freshmen year while all other schools on the West Coast require two years of schooling before you can be accepted into the nursing program.

3 College Student

Scholarships: When I do get financial aid it is sufficient for my needs. The only problem I have is my paperwork is constantly lost and they blame me for losing it after i submitted the paperwork to the office.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are about six small restaurants in town, with two chains. The best places to eat by far are the smallest in size. I personally recommend Mill Bridge and Doris's Café. They are both extremely affordable and have GREAT food.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: You get to venture out into another country.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Always a salad bar; different foods each day.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have lived off campus the entire time i have gone to school and have yet to have any issues

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's the same expensive food for cheap quality that is not very good

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I've never had a terrible or great experience with them
