3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Much better and cheaper than dorms, you have much more freedom

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I LOVE how theres a lot of dunkin donuts, but chipotle being closer would be better

3 College Freshman

Administration: You are still able to have fun and do what you want as long as you're quiet enough for nobody to know

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have the most fun here going out with my friends for the night

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Sometimes its hard to get in tough with the people you need

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I wish that the dining halls had more fresh fruit options

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm in particular has no towels in then bathroom, but overall the dorms here are a lot of fun.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've been looking for an apartment recently and they do tend to be pricy but a lot of them are very conveniently located, and close to the school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the interesting dining places are in Bangor, near the mall, but even that is only one exit up the highway.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Honestly with so many students its really hard to buckle down and catch all of the underage drinking and such. Most of the time people respect quiet hours, during the week days anyway. Usually most people stay up on the weekends so the quiet hours seem irrelevant.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The Grove, OT, and other apartment complexes inhabited by college students obviously get rowdy and busy. However, there are plenty of apartments and houses available for college students to rent in Orono, Old Town, and Bangor.

Off-Campus Dining: If the choices in Orono and Old Town aren't to your liking, drive 15 minutes to Bangor where you can choose from a large variety of different sit down and fast food restaurants.

Administration: It honestly depends on who you're dealing with. Some people are extremely helpful while others make you want to set your hair on fire.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The best parties are right around Homecoming, however, one of the fraternities ends up having a party each weekend which can be a great way to get out and meet new people. The first couple months are typically for exploring, then you see the same people start to show up, everyone finds whats comfortable.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I personally only got the Blackbear scholarship for $1,000 and received only a couple other scholarships from my hometown.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always a place to party on or near campus. You can even get away with drinking in dorm rooms if you're careful.

Scholarships: The Black Bear Scholarship is the easiest to acquire straight out of high school. It's $500 a semester; every little bit counts.

Campus Food: With as many mouths as the dining halls have to feed, you can expect the food to lack in quality. But overall, the food is okay. The options do get tiresome, but sometimes all it takes is a little creativity to spice up your meals.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is sometimes okay, I personally really enjoy the stirfry and the pasta bar is good most of the time as well. Sometimes it just seems there is a lack of variety and the options they offer get old after a while and Easy Mac in my room looks more and more appealing.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is as expected. The dorms are comfortable, the walls are kind of thin but other than that I have no real complaints of the resident halls. The social atmosphere is also very nice. There is something for everyone at the University of Maine, one never has to worry about fitting in. The cost is one of the best around which I'm sure is a reason many people, including myself chose this university.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms are cleaner and obviously newer than others. Most RA's make the first year experience easier for students willing to participate in planned activities. It is pricey and the dining halls aren't great. Housing options for upperclassmen are slim; most residence halls are intended for freshmen.

College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: there are a lot of parties and they are usually packed

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: there are a lot of good pizza shops around

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The students who offered responses regarding their overall experience at UMaine have overwhelmingly praised the University for its affect on the students who attend it. Many of the students make Maine their home, even after graduation. More in-state students remain in Maine, while more out-of-state students tend to move on to other areas, or back to their indigenous locations. The University has an abundance of assets of immeasurable value to offer to its students. There are activities and clubs for nearly every student interest. There is some organization that fits well into their majors, providing real experience within their fields to build resumes and get careers off to a head start, while tying them into a new circle of friends. The Career Center services for job placement after graduation are not only a help for current students, but they are available to students for one year at no charge after graduation.

The University of Maine prides itself on its reputation most importantly among its students, but also with its alumni. UMaine is a welcoming trip home during alumni functions and special events. Students graduating from UMaine also receive a one year complimentary membership to the University of Maine Alumni Association. Students also can purchase the licensing for only $10 to maintain their FirstClass e-mail accounts in order to stay in touch while apart from those who became close to them during their time at UMaine. Some students said that UMaine was their choice, some said it was not. Some students responded saying that they transferred to UMaine from other institutions, but nearly all of them have enjoyed their experiences at UMaine and are proud to call it their alma mater, andeven more whole-heartedly, their home.
