4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school skimps in some areas where it shouldn't. For example, some of the professors aren't quite up to par. Other than that, this is a pretty good school

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The business school is great help with finding internships, I'm really not sure how good other schools are.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The UMaine campus is very dark, but generally I feel pretty safe

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I never actually lived on campus, so there is not much I can review

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life monopolizes the party scene on campus and are very cliquey. Some are better than others though

4 College Junior

Athletics: Some of the sports complexes are old, but well maintained and well kept. The rec center, however, is one of the best in the nation.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UMaine is very small and very cold. Professors are generally there when you need them and fellow students are decent human beings, albeit strange at times.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are a lot of frat parties if you want to go to them.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are some good ones. I don't typically go to the frats. Not my scene.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Overall its good! There are a couple professors that I wish I didn't have, but it's been good!

Campus Housing: Meh. It's required first year housing. I'm in the honors college, so Penobscot was quieter than most on the hill and cleaner so that was good. But it wasn't that great.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I really don't care about greek life. They have a lot of parties and a lot of guys are in frats. We only have one sorority with housing.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I never go to sporting events but the rec center is wicked nice and there are a lot of intramurals.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a good school. The chemistry department could use a lot of work but other than that I have no complaints.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I can't say I was excited at first but I made it work :)

4 College Freshman

Athletics: UMaine Black Bears are where it's at!!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Though it's a big school, it still feels like my small home town.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes and professors are great, but there are some that may not teach in a way that helps the students. Class sizes for Gen ed courses are very large (100+) and many engineering courses are medium (20-40). Other classes on campus can be very small (the smallest class I've been in had 10-14 students total).

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school has career fairs and helps the students find internships, but I haven't used the career center so I'm not sure of it's quality.

Health & Safety: I think this is a relatively safe campus, but I'm not involved in the party scene, which is where people may be less safe.

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.
