Classes are in-depth and challenging and people are nice here so it's a good school for getting an education. However, there's absolutely NOTHING to do in Farmington, Maine. If you're someone who likes to party, you've come to the wrong place. You will not find a single party on campus; I haven't been to one this year because there aren't any. Weekends are an absolute snooze-fest. The only way you're even sniffing a party is if you know certain upperclassmen with apartments who like to party. I will be transferring next year because I can't take any more boring weekends.
The University of Maine at Farmington is not only a school but truly a second home. The campus is only a short walk from downtown and with that, you are able to interact with the community. Everyone is extremely friendly and truly make you feel safe in this small town. As for the school itself, you are able to tell that the professor are passionate about their lessons and adore their students and want them to succeed. Classes are both challenging and enjoyable. In the social aspect of the school, there is always something happening on campus whether it be a sporting event, a show for the newest collection at the art gallery, concerts, or even yoga where members of the community are also welcome. This is a fantastic place to go to school and I wouldn't want to attend anywhere else.
I lived in one of the newer dorms and honestly, I had everything that I needed. We didn't have community style bathrooms, which was wonderful! Our janitor was the absolute best; however, the dorm bathrooms needed to be better taken care of. That is not the janitors fault, most college kids just don't know how to clean up after themselves. The housing process was a piece of cake. You got a lottery number based on you GPA, year, and credits. Farmington is always willing to help people find a way for paying, but it can get really stressful the first year with all the paperwork.
