At UNE, students are surrounded by a scenic and relaxing environment because of it's location on the Saco River. I believe environment plays a major role in how well a student does academically. UNE is a very academically driven community rather than the typical college "party" schools, but students still have great activities to participate in constantly provided by the school. The facilities are very up to date and student friendly. The actually just opened a whole new facility geared towards my major, Athletic Training, and a few others. I am completely excited to practice and learn in this building and I know it will motivate me to do my best! there is a wide range of opportunities at UNE; you can volunteer to work in the marine center taking care of the injured seals and sea turtles, to joining multiple clubs pertaining to your major.UNE offers great academic programs and offers over 30 undergraduate programs! They offer multiple study abroad global experiences and integrate many clinical and internship opportunities into your major. Overall, UNE is a fantastic school for a student who is very academically driven, and looking for a great college experience.

Our security is very active. Not only do we have blue lights around campus for someone to push if they don't feel safe, we also have safe-ride services run by students who can pick people up at night and bring them where they want to go so one doesn't have to walk in the dark. The security officers are always communicating with the student body through email and text messages, making sure that we are informed about campus activity and are safe. Plus, they're friendly! You can approach them and talk to them.
