4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I can't speak for the Portland or Gorham campuses, but I have not had any problems on the Lewiston campus in regards to my safety.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I honestly cannot say enough about the program that I am in at USM. Occupational therapy is most certainly my calling and I know that the education that I am receiving will prepare me to be highly successful. The professors go above and beyond for the students and treat them as individuals. Not once have I felt like I have been left in dust and on my own. The standards and expectations for students are clearly defined at the beginning of the program and there are no surprises along the way.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I have had a great experience! The classes are a good size with wonderful teachers. Classes are interesting and there are a variety of options.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are so many people willing to help find internships or volunteer opportunities that coincide with our majors. Advisers are very knowledgeable and helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a wonderful first semester at USM! I love how friendly everyone is from the advisors to the professors. I also really enjoy they large selection of courses offered each semester.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe that if you are willing to work with the career center, you will find what you are looking for. There isn't anything they can't help with, and if you are comfortable going there, prospects will appear on the horizon.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am a commuter student who takes mostly online courses, so I can't really rate USM's athletics based on my few visits to campus. However, I have seen the school spirit, the athletic facilities, and seen a few teams during practice. I can say that sports, and athleticism is very big at USM.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At the University of Southern Maine, they make every person feel welcome and capable of achieving their goals. I love that when I realized I wanted to change my major, from Athletic Training to Behavioral Sciences, it was an easy process and I had GREAT support. I will always be thankful for my experience at this small, memorable university.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many emergency spots and lights all around campus. As well as emergency services available.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have gotten along with all my professors. They all respond to their emails quickly which I like.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm only a freshman and I have talked to many people about internships. There are many places in the area.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There's good places to live and there's bad, like most universities. Upton-Hastings is one of the worst, housing the freshman, and Upper class hall is one of the nicest I have seen.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek life but you see them now and then, sponsoring some events that go on.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The whole Costello sports complex is great, one of the largest field houses in the state.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The events are fun. It is very easy to make friends with all that goes on.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gym and fields are very nice here and are kept up with.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really like how I can do my own thing at school. I transferred to the University of Southern Maine and it was the best decision I have made. I really enjoy the social work department here and I am really feeling like I am learning a lot already.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I usually feel very safe on campus. Sometimes in Portland I feel uncomfortable walking to the parking garage, but that has nothing to do with the school itself. I just don't like walking around in Portland by myself. Other than that I think the university does a great job at keep the students feel safe. They offer plenty of resources for students with anxiety and other metal illnesses.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed the style of my classes. My professors have all been very open minded. Students are not afraid to open up to their professors and classmates.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: USM has a big job fair every winter. I think the job fair will eventually help me get a job in my field when I am ready to.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have a friend who is a part of Greek life and she seems to enjoy it a lot. However, I don't think it's for me.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I really wish USM had more club teams. I don't have time top play on a varsity team, but would love to be apart of club softball, if they had it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy USM. I was very nervous on my first day, but now I feel right at home. My professors are down to earth. I feel eager to learn when I go to class and wouldn't change schools if I had the option.
