4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students clearly show their school spirit during game days.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is better than being on campus yet options are numbered if you don't want to be stuck in the Grove or OT.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Usually can find a party around just have to ask around on whats going on and where.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a good handful of places you can go to and a majority of places offer student/weekly discounts that make it worth going to.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The worst that I can think of that may affect a student's academic standing would be commuter parking. Each professor has their own attendance policy. There is little commuter parking for the amount of students they made

move off campus.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Honestly, make sure you don't forget anything when doing financial aid, if you miss the simplest checked box you may screw yourself over.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food isn't always the best but overall they do serve healthy food options as well as options for a sweet tooth.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Overall living on campus isn't bad, you are clsoe to the class buildings as well as dinning halls.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I see the officers at least couple times a day. They are driving around or doing a walk through the dorms later in the night.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had a GPA of 3.76 on a 4.0 scale and they only gave me 1500 for the year because my fafsa is too high.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There really isn't too much I like to start off with but I like the deli bars at wells and hilltop.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are lots of clubs and plenty of people to become freinds with. It's about a 15 minute walk across the whole campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: If you want to live off campus, don't do OT or the Grove. They screw more people over than I can count. They only do full year leases and I know for the Grove the Subleaser fee is $500. Find a house with some friends and it's much less stressful, and so much cheaper.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many places so close together. They are all so good and I always find myself going back. Small town, but lot's of options.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I don't party, but my friends that do say it's ehh.

3 College Junior

Administration: It's what you would expect for a college.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: They have always been super helpful when I need them. For the most part if you apply, you get a scholarship of some form.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's okay. I lived in PATCH this year (with a stovetop and oven) and I was much happier. However, it is nice to go and get food that you don't have to cook every now and again.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is how I made friends.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not big on sports but everybody on campus has use of the facilities. Greek life has their own intramural games happening nearly every day. There is also the regular intramural teams, anybody can make one. Its also really easy to join a sports team if you're good enough.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As a member of greek life at UMaine I can say that it is without a doubt one of the best choices I have made since coming here. I have learned so many useful skills and made so many friends in so many organizations.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: You have four apartment complexes to choose from. They're all overpriced but that doesn't stop anybody from living there. OT is great, a little cheeper than the Grove. The maintenance people are on top of things. You call them and they'll be there the same day. The apartments at the Grove are definitely nicer, but the maintenance sucks. It takes forever for somebody to come and fix a problem. The biggest problem at both facilities are the utilities overages. They suck. In the winter at OT you can have $60 to $70 overages and its by building, not apartment. However if you complain and know what to say they can give you a by apartment break down.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Sure down town Orono is tiny but there are at least 10 restaurants packed into the center of town. They're all pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You can find a party anywhere over the weekend. When it gets really cold they die down a bit. But thats good because girls would freeze walking around in short skirts and heals.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I've found that nothing is too strict. The rules are clearly outlined and if you break them there is a consequence that isn't too harsh.

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.
