I went to the University of Maine at Machias about 16 years ago. It was an amazing experience at the University because of the diversity of students, the campus beauty and the overall Downeast Maine atmosphere. Here I sit today going back to the University of Maine at Machias in my early 40's. I decided to change my major and return to school. I am an online student now, however I stay connected in various ways through the school. What I find the most appealing that even after all these years, the same professors are still working at the college. The school has a home like feel because of the atmosphere the campus offers. I highly recommend the University of Maine at Machias if you enjoy the outdoors, especially oceans. There may not be a lot of things to do in town because it is very rural. However, there is an abundance of outdoor activities that will be a once in a lifetime experience. Whether it exploring Jaspers Beach or The Bluff.

The dorm rooms themselves are pretty decent. A double in Sennett is spacious and plenty of room for two people, and the singles in Dorward are great! At first they seem kinda small, but once everything you have is actually put into place its absolutely perfect. The heating is nice, on occasion it almost feels like a window could be opened, which is much preferable during the winter season that freezing. Though Dorward is a little farther away from Torrey and the classrooms it's perfect for those who don't get out much and physical activity. The social atmosphere is pretty good, it's best to stay away from the sororities and fraternities though.
Greek life affects the social atmosphere of campus by just having someone to talk to and the competition between each Greek is entertaining. Greek students are viewed by non-Greeks by telling rumors about what they do when people pledge but they are all just rumors. Other then that they view them as fun, educators, and friendly. There are currently 8 greek organizations. There is Epsilon Sigma Alpha, Kappa Delta Phi, Kappa Mu Alpha, Omicron Delta Phi, Phi Tau Phi, Psi Delta, Sigma Chi Lambda, and Kappa Alpha Kappa.
