5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Courses and professors are great. they care and are always there for you

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school offers a lot of chances to find/get into a job of your top interest

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not a problem at Umaine

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Lived in the dorm with my best friend for one semester. Liked it enough, but its not for everyone.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not a fan of it myself, but the people that join seem to love it. Heard they throw great parties.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We have a field house that house a massive pool for the swim/dive team, basketball court, indoor track facility, and the home of the ROTC program. On top of that, we have a state of the art fitness center that hosts intramurals and other fun activities. We also have a great football stadium and huge soccer/field hockey fields, as well as baseball and soft ball fields. Umaine has it all.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've lived here my whole life, so it wasn't much of a change when I started college here. Yes, the winters are cold, yes there is a lot of snow, and yes you still have to walk to class when it's a blizzard outside. But regardless of that, there are ALWAYS activities going on out on the 'mall', including people playing frisbee, people grilling bacon, playing on a slack line, and more. On top of that there is a state of the art fitness center that has a full pool, indoor running track, three basketball courts, and offers yoga/fitness classes. There's always something to do. Talking about the education side of things, classes can be quite large, but teachers are always extremely nice, classes are relatively easy, and you have a million different classes to choose from to fit your interests. Great school and I would recommend to anyone.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There's many different housing options but the campus is usually rather over-populated for its capacity.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: There's such a large variety and tremendous amounts of opprotunities to find the group that suits you best

5 College Junior

Athletics: They really keep their facilities and opprotunities state-of-the-art and up to date

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a very great school in the way that it is large enough to have nearly every program that you need, however it over-accepts its students ad necessary classes fill up fast.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Realitively safe, as far as college campuses go. Could be safer and patrolled more.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is okay, I have no formal opinion on the matter. To each their own.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't physically participate in sports, but the games are well attended by students, faculty, and fans alike.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great school, great professors, and a great atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Nothing bad has ever happened to me on campus. But thats probably because the freshman dorms are very close to the police station. One thing that needs improvement though is on the nature/bike trail there's barely any emergency lights. Which doesn't really seem too safe. If it was at least every 1/2 mile it would be safer.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far my college experience has been going ok/ The professors seem to be very understanding about conflicts and none of the people that Ive encountered have sowed any type of hostility toward me.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Im currently an undeclared student. But from what I know none of the internship prospects seem to be lacking.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: When it comes to campus housing it really just depends on the dorm. With my dorm it was very cramped and the people were not clean by any means. But with other dorms on campus they can be very clean and large.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: To be honest Greek life on campus is a large thing. But it's mostly just for the party's and the hazing rumors.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really go to any sport events. I just know that a lot of money goes into them.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel that there should be a better grading system.

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.
