I've attended many colleges and USM has offered the best experience I've had. As a non-traditional student, I've always felt like an "outsider". That is not the case at USM where my professors know my name, my advisor is always available to me and the department members are eager to assist.

I was incredibly unsure of which graduate program I wanted to attend. I am originally from Massachusetts, so choosing to go to a school that was out of state was a big decision. However, as soon as I drove up for the interview I was certain that if I got accepted to the program I would attend. The attitudes of the professors at USM were amazing and it was clear from the start that if I went to USM I would be surrounded by individuals who want me to succeed and would prepare me to do so.

I just transferred to USM this past semester so far and it's great! The teachers are very helpful in answering any questions I have, as is the rest of the staff. They have many options for courses depending on what your interest are and they are easily available.
