I have been an athlete for 4 years and also involved in the Athletic Training program. A lot of the students at UMPI are athletes, and fitness is a big part of the student body's priorities. Team performance is so-so. UMPI is a small D3 school, so sometimes the emphasis is more on participation than performance. At the same time, this can allow someone to try a new sport and get involved. The athletic facilities are great- Gentile Hall is a wonderful resource, the athletic training staff and students are phenomenal, and the campus is surrounded by farm roads and snowmobile trails that are great for long runs. UMPI is also in close proximity to two world-class nordic skiing facilities that are free to ski at any time of the day!

This school is for people that does not like diversity, creativity, and outspoken individuals. The staff and security mastered the art of manipulation. The security will be sniffing your butt your whole time there. If you like negative vibes and high school drama this is the place for you. If you want to start having anxiety this is the school for you. If you are a gay male this is the school for you because most of these dudes here are undercover homosexuals. If you want to go to court and risk losing your financial aid then this is the school for you. Listen to me it will save you a lot of time and money. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THIS SCHOOL, YOU WILL GO INSANE.

The food in the dining hall is awful most of the time. The food that they put out that the students actually like is rarely served. Most of the time they are trying too hard to put out food that caters to the vegetarian and homestyle food lovers. They serve a lot of weird casseroles and pretentious food that most people don't like. When I have 20 minutes in between classes to eat I just want to be able to go there and quickly find something that I like, that isn't cereal or ANOTHER hamburger. Burgers are the ONLY thing that is always available and somewhat good.
