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.

5 College Student

Athletics: I am involved with the wrestling team. Coaches and team mates are very supportive in all areas of college life. They have given me knowlege and confidence to more forward to my next year. A Big Thank You to all who helped me.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Great places eat near school and the prices are average. The dining cost are average and how much money you want to spend

4 College Student

Administration: Never had issues with school policies. Heard a lot of rumors.

5 College Student

Scholarships: Very helpful and gave me a full explanation of what I was offered and what I had to pay out. They gave me a grant I had not anticipated for my second semester. This was a big help to me and my family.

Party Scene: Select your friends wisely and stay focus on why your going to school. Also, use some common sense when trying out new adventures in the party scene, as it may affect your future.........

3 College Student

Campus Food: This area needs some restructioning. It is very expensive, the 10 meal plan does not last, always adding more dining dollars, and many of us go to the local supermarket to buy a cart full of food for less. The dining areas are a convenience to students on the go. When you have classes and participate in sports you do not always have time to go back to your room to consume your food you purchased at the local grocery store.

There is a need to increase the basic 10 meal plan, to 14 meals for the same price. A lot of student struggle with money to pay for their education and they can not eat healthy at the current expensive prices.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The dorms are in need of repair, as they are old! I have adjusted to my dorm room and directed my energy on classes, and wrestling. I choose my new friends wisely and became part of the USM wrestling team.. My classes are challenging and I can only advise new students to have good study habits. avoid excessive dorm life recreations, and remember education is costly.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know. I'm not involved in Greek life or frats/sororities so I don't know a lot about them.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I wish we had a football team, but we do have the largest indoor ice rink in Maine and we have a nice indoor track so that's great. The campus gym is pretty good as well. Fan support could be a lot better because many students are not involved in supporting their teams whatsoever.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't a lot of housing options in Gorham and it tends to be expensive. Portland has a lot more options for apartments and such, but it still can be expensive.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a Hannaford down the road that only takes about 20 minutes to walk to, along with a Subway, Burger King, smoothie bar, etc...but if you're talking about the Portland campus, the options are much more diverse and basically unlimited because Portland has a ton of options even though it's not very close to the Gorham campus.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I'm glad that they keep up with keeping drugs and alcohol under control, most of the RAs are good about writing students up for underage drinking and such. They could be a little less strict with parking and ticketing, especially in the winter when you park in the wrong spot because you can't see under the snow/ice where the line ends.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was able to get a really good grant from Maine and a scholarship from USM.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not big on partying. I don't think partying is a necessary part of the superficial, so-called "true college experience". But huge parties don't happen very often here, sometimes people can be loud and obnoxious anyways. It seems like everyone's always wanting to just get drunk as if that's the only fun way to party.
