3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food from decary had a bad name for itself considering how often students felt ill after eating it. windward had great sandwiches, salads, and smoothies which I got whenever I had lunch on campus! the hang had good easy foods like different kinds of fried foods if you're into that kind of stuff.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is lots of variety in Biddeford. Most places are relatively cheap, or chain restaurants. Not a lot of ethnic cuisine, but there is Tin Tin Chinese Buffet, and Casa Fiesta for Mexican food. There are no student discounts, but some restaurants accept flex dollars. Portland Pie Co. has fantastic pizza, but it's a little pricey.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is generally respectful and courteous. Policies regarding alcohol and drugs are enforced strictly on campus. Overnight dorm visitors need to be checked in, but brief visits do not. Parking even temporarily without permission results in 10-20$ tickets and sometimes towing, which I'm told adds 60-100$ fines to student accounts.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Merit scholarships are offered to nearly all students. However, the merit scholarships are not enough to bring the cost of attendance down to a reasonable level. The minimum offered is 8000$/year and the maximum is 18000$/ year. It was a bit of a hassle to receive a renewed scholarship, but it was received anyway. Students need to stay above a 2.5 to receive aid, but if they fall below for a semester, they are given a probationary period.

Campus Food: Sodexo provides all food options on campus. Plates and utensils in Decary are often visibly dirty when they are placed out for student use. Winward has excellent smoothies, but it's about 4.30$ for a medium, which is about 12 oz. The hang provides acceptable food, but it's over-priced and often has a wait. The forum is by far the best food on campus, and rarely has a wait. However, the forum is overpriced as well, and is a relatively long distance from the main part of campus. Flex dollars must be used by the end of the year- many students opt to buy a gift card from Panera Bread to use the remaining amount.

Campus Housing: The dorms are fairly average in terms of quality. Freshmen dorms are within 2 minutes of most undergraduate buildings. However, Sokokis is about a 15 minute walk from any buildings aside from the Alfond Forum. Social atmosphere in the dorms is typically rather dysfunctional and rowdy. Some rules housing gives seem unnecessary. Students are required to have all-metal trashcans, are not allowed any decorations within 2 feet of the ceiling, and are not allowed to plug anything directly into sockets, but rather into a surge-protected power strip. I understand that these were implemented for student safety, but some seem a little excessive nonetheless. I highly recommend Siena for incoming freshmen, and West for upperclassmen.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many local restaurants that very good! Most places accept Nor'easter Dollars.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are rarely any parties. If there are they are not over the top. Just friends hanging out.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is very good. If you respect them, they will respect you.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I only received one scholarship this year, which is okay. But that won't last for four years of payment for an expensive private school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Sodexo is not the best food supplier. We are a school in Maine, farm country. Why don't we have farm grown food, local vegetables and fruits? Instead we get laxative engrossed foods.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is fantastic at UNE. Freshmen housing is close to everything. West and East dorms are amazing single suites. Champlain and Sokokis halls are very warm and homy.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are some spots that are really bad around here if you want to be close to school and other things. If you want to travel a little bit and spend more money, there are some really good places that people like.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of off-campus dining option, but it is really expensive and there is not a lot of student discounts. It is nice to go out with friends every once in a while, but we can't do it all the time because it is so expensive.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus allows a lot of things, but they really want you to know what is right and what is wrong. They are very strict with underage drinking and drug use because this is a dry campus, but with others things they are really lenient with.

Party Scene: There aren't too many parties at this school. It is mostly quiet on the weekends unless you know an upper classmen. You would have to go off campus or to other people's dorm rooms in order to find a party, if you're lucky.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is not always the best. They try to make food for everyone and everyone's different styles, but sometimes it is completely bad. The Forum, the Hang, and Windward are your best places to eat, unfortunately the Hand and Windward uses flex dollars so I run out of those quickly!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus life is really great! Although I miss home a lot, the people around herereally make is enjoyable to stay on campus. There are plenty of activites to do around campus, and people always want to invite you to do games and events!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security is always doing rounds making for a very safe environment for students.

Campus Food: The cafes are the place to eat. The only problem is that you run out of flex too fast.
