4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall, the education I am receiving at USM is okay. I have had several problems with specific professors at the school, which has made my time less enjoyable.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The nursing program at USM has been a challenging yet rewarding experience. I am proud to be going to school here and can't wait to become a nurse practitioner in Maine with a USM education.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Maine and I love USM. The academics are wonderful and well structured, along with the professors. The campus is beautiful in Portland and Gorham. This is a wonderful school for someone who likes a more intimate learning experience and as a medium size school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is not a day that passes that I do not pat myself on the back for making the decision to attend the Nursing program at the University of Southern Maine. I have been challenged and my mind has been opened up to view the world around me so much differently than I ever could've imagined.

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.

3 College Freshman

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.
