Maine Maritime Academy offers students a fantastic chance to receive hands-on education in the fields of engineering, transportation, and business. Helpful staff, free on-campus tutoring, a strong alumni network, and a beautiful location in Castine, Maine make Maine Maritime worth serious consideration. Its biggest drawback is a hefty tuition fee but given the variety of jobs available after graduation it isn't too much of a concern.
Though there's not much to do outside of school up here in Castine, Maine, the education is simply unmatched, especially for those of us in the Regiment of Midshipmen. For those interested in obtaining U.S. Coast Guard License(s), Maine Maritime Academy is an excellent choice. It is well worth the investment.
