Attending the University of Maine at Fort Kent has been one of the greatest decisions of my life! I have met so many amazing people from different countries. The campus, although small compared to other universities, has a great sense of diversity. The professors are extremely helpful and accessible if students have questions!

Fort Kent is a small town. Even though it may seem small there is still things to do. The food at the cafe is not very great, the bengal lair is a great option though. The campus feels very safe. All the professors are very nice and helpful. Many of the staff are incredible as well. The library has many great resources that help with assignments. TRIO is also a great resource. They can help provide tutoring for when you need help in a class. The staff at Umfk always want to help you do your best and push you to pursue your academic goals.
My experience at UMFK has been positively shaped by the friendly people that I have encountered on campus, and off campus in the community; people are very willing to help. Also, the professors I have had so far are very well educated and care about student success. The cafeteria food is average and excellent at times. Winter drags on a little too long, but there are many things to do outdoors like skiing, ice-skating, or playing hockey. The summer season is exceptional and makes the winter weather worth it. The only advice I would give is to make the most out of the opportunities given and get involved.
