UMPI is a growing school. Both in size, and in what they offer for the students. The biology faculty is fantastic, and most professors are willing to work with you, and are truly concerned with your success. As a DIII school, athletics is similar to high school, and UMPI provides a unique experience where you can be on multiple varsity teams, like being on a fall team, and then continuing on to a spring team, but it may be a lot to handle depending on the athlete, and all the programs are building to be better. UMPI is diverse for a Northern Maine school, and is always trying to improve. The food is not good however, and the financial aid is not the best, but better than a lot of bigger colleges. If you can push through the cold winter, UMPI is a nice school.

For a small school, it can offer a lot. The class sizes are small, the professors are personable with their students, and the classes give you a good, well rounded education.
I love all my classes and professors; they really care about their students and listen to what they need. Food has many options for every meal and has options for vegetarians. There is now dairy free milk options as well. Presque Isle is very small but has everything a student needs in the Walmart and local stores. There are many off campus food options really close down Maine Street.
