College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived with off-campus housing so I can't rate what I've never experienced.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: With a McDonalds down the street it's pretty nice, especially if you go off the dollar menu and use your clipper card to get the discount! Pat's is pretty good most of the time though they are highly priced. There aren't a whole lot of options but you make do

4 College Freshman

Administration: School policies shouldn't and don't really affect the students academic or social lives. The campus is pretty lenient with most things unless they ARE illegal.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was pretty smooth, the earlier you apply the better the package. The women in the Business Office and Financial Aid Office are wonderful and very helpful. If you have questions they are the ones to go to. And if you originally didn't receive work-study? You can go in and ask if they have any extra funds that they can give to you!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a partier, so I wouldn't really know

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Kilburn is alright, when the Galley was open in Kimball food options were great! It's a little odd having to do Galley in Kilburn. There is a bit of a variety though it's the same variety every day.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm rooms themselves are pretty decent. A double in Sennett is spacious and plenty of room for two people, and the singles in Dorward are great! At first they seem kinda small, but once everything you have is actually put into place its absolutely perfect. The heating is nice, on occasion it almost feels like a window could be opened, which is much preferable during the winter season that freezing. Though Dorward is a little farther away from Torrey and the classrooms it's perfect for those who don't get out much and physical activity. The social atmosphere is pretty good, it's best to stay away from the sororities and fraternities though.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They do occasional "bashes" that don't have anything harder than soda (like twice a year) and do a lot in the community but otherwise don't flaunt being Greek on campus because no one cares that much whether you're Greek or not.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: What parties? I don't even like parties? I love not dealing with any parties! Even getting caught beyond the dorm room alcohol limit (two six packs of beer, two bottles of wine, or one bottle of wine and one six pack- no hard liquor) is a fairly serious offence. Students abide by the rule and support it 90% of the time and those who don't are those who got caught over the limit, and no one cares what they think about a rule they just got caught breaking.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There aren't a ton of local/ campus scholarships around but the ones that are around are easy to apply for and there's a decent amount of merit based aid and a small sports scholarship along with a small room and board stipend (although they recently cut the sports scholarships down by about three quarters of the previous amount). Combined with outside scholarships and the FAFSA it's not too bad and the registrar is really knowledgeable and helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is almost no danger on campus and the town is safe to walk in at 2:00 in the morning (then again there's nothing to do and nowhere to go at 2:00 in the morning in Machias) so long as one stays clear of Skywalker's and the Thirsty Moose (both bars open only in the late night and early morning) which are right next to each other and easily avoided. Sexual assault is so actively prevented that students passively complain about the campaign going just a little too far because there is not a sexual assault problem on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not worth the trouble. The price of room and board and having someone else do the cooking for you beats out any apartment they've got in Machias, that is, when one is available.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They're dorms, what can I say? We have small rooms constructed out of cinder block. They aren't pretty but they don't collect mold or mildew. There are only two dorm buildings and one of them is for freshmen only. We don't have "quiet floors" or "chem free" floors because we can't seal off entire floors for anything, so we just make quiet or chem free hallways. Navigation is easy and the staff are friendly enough and we're close to our classrooms in every direction. The students are mostly quiet and there isn't much student culture or political activity. They're cheap dorms so its about what I'd expect for the price.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Actually, I don't mind the endless repetition. Everyone loves Helen's Restaurant, including me, and its nice not to be bothered by chain or fast food places too much. It's also nice to not always have a night life. Sometimes all the places closing at 5:00 isn't bad. That said, convenience can be lacking when there are only a few places to go. That also said, we'v got a great health food store!

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Maybe I should say certain aspects are bad actually. Basketball and soccer receive a lot of attention, but there are no spring sports at all and teams other than soccer and basketball are not taken seriously. The XC team does not even have a coach currently.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Things that don't really matter like occasional excessive noise (so long as one does not do it constantly or purposely) or letting parents visit dorms are not kicked around with strict rules, but things like illegal alcohol and drug use are not found tolerable and the limit on alcohol on campus is both reasonable and beneficial.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The work load is totally do-able, I haven't had a problem with it at all. And the classes are just like any other college class.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There's plenty of majors but I'm kind of struggling to find another class to take.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Tuition is really cheap but I still have quite a bit to cover my self.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's only a couple different kinds of restaurants

3 College Freshman

Administration: The people and the school itself is so nice, but there's absolutely nothing to do..

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They set up rules and regulations and follow them seemingly well.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We have one McDonald a Chinese food place and one restaurant not much to choose from

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety is alright but in an entire year I had only seen the one security guy once

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Scholarships and grants are great but loans the give you do not cover the majority of what you owe per semester
