3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the people I have met at school, and the office of residential life are wonderful. However, the finances and education are confusing and the administration problems at school are causing problems and many professors are losing their jobs.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my experience at the University of Southern Maine has been okay. With budget cuts happening at the school there are a lot of classes being cut as well as a lot of outrage at the Board of Trustees making these cuts. I went to declare my major as a Liberal Studies major with a concentration in Classics but after taking two classes within that track it got cut.

I probably would not choose USM again simply because it does not have my intended major which is Music Management. I had originally applied as a music major with the intent on having a business minor but during my application process I changed it to Media Studies, thinking that that would be closer to Music Management, however once I started at USM I realized that it was no where near Media Studies.

Scholarships: The staff at the financial aid office are great about answering questions and helping you get straightened out. You can walk right in and be helped within a minute or two and they always make sure you understand exactly what's going on with your application for student aid.

Off-Campus Housing: You can get a place literally right across the street but the landlords generally ask for pretty high rents, so you'd likely need a few roommates. You're very safe. Parking is awful.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You don't see many big parties and the ones you find are typically from knowing the right kind of people. Still, it's not too hard to find someplace to unwind.

Off-Campus Dining: Portland's a great place for finding different types of cuisine but the Portland campus is mostly close to Burger King. Definitely check out Stavro's by the Portland campus; the pizza's great.

Overall Experience: I am happy with my decision to be part of USM. They need to do some work on the old dorm rooms (cut cost on them,due to their run down condition) and creat an affordable meal plan ( 10 meals to 14 meals for the cost of the 10 meal plan and include the same dining dollars) If a student has an appealing room and affordable 14 meal plan this will go a long way on attitude and adjustment towards college life. Taking your classes and studying is a major factor and a nice room with plenty of affordable meals will take you in a better attitude direction. Being part of USM wrestling team gave me a positive direction to succeed in academics and over look my dorm room/meal plan. They were like my second family and very support in all aspects of college life. I am going to return next year keeping the same positive attitude and enjoyment in my academic studies.
