University of Maine at Fort Kent Reviews
I really don't know much about the Greek Life here on campus, just because it's really not a big deal. They may want you to join, but don't get bothered when you don't. There is only two Greeks on campus; one sorority and one fraternity. There really isn't housing available for the Greeks; they either live on campus, scattered around the different housings options, or, one or more have houses/apartments off campus and that is where they meet. The Greeks here don't really have a social atmosphere on campus; they have a part but are not very important to student life.
If you create your class wish list, and are able to get it approved, and then enroll at the right time so one would be able to get into the classes he/she wants. Even if one is not able to get into a class, you can talk to the professor running the class and see if they will put one more person in or put you at the top of the waiting list. The professors here really care about students. And depending on what you are studying to be, depends on the classes; but if a class or multiple classes are not offered from UMFK, there are other schools that they work with so you can take the same class online and still get the credit. There are also classes offered throughout the summer and during winter break which really helps some to get classes done and out of the way, so they can worry about the "big important" classes (nursing, forestry, etc.).
Yes it is far away, but I would say that it was worth it. Some may say that they don't get enough nursing courses, but that is their fault; they make their own class schedules. UMFK is unique, just by the location; you are able to view and become accustomed to different ways. Everyone is very nice up here and are willing to have a conversation or help you out. One of my favorite things to do up here, even though I study constantly, is to go to the Snow Dog Races in the Spring and go over to Canada to go out with friends and shop. There are other things to do up here like ice skating, hiking, fishing, hunting, snow shoeing, ATV and snowmobile riding, skiing, and more if you go out and find things. I would defiantly choose this school again if I started all over just because where I want to be later in life (career), this school will teach and try their hardest to help me get to where I want to be. They care and are willing to help however they can.
