University of Maine Reviews
I absolutely love University of Maine! The campus is beautiful and the teachers work very hard to make sure the students understand the criteria. It may be somewhat of a party school, but the academics are wonderfully executed. There are many groups/clubs and sororities/fraternities to join so that you can really be a big part of the campus. They are fairly good at sports and have a sporting game or two almost every day-so if you're a sports fan, you'll really enjoy going here.
I enrolled in UMaine for their School of Forest Resources and I couldn't be happier about my decision! Faculty is extremely knowledgable and are personally invested in your success. Winter seems to last forever but the party life is active and helps it go by. I wouldn't reccomend staying on campus after your freshman year, the dorms are average at best and compared to alternative living prices, not worth your time in my opinion.
I love it here! Even though I'm 5 hours from my hometown, this place has become my new home. Everyone treated the freshman fairly, but did not baby us. There are so many programs and outreach facilities if I had any questions. I joined clubs and teams I never thought I would do. I joined a sorority and it is one of the best decisions of my life! I also got scuba certified and a lab internship, I feel already really prepared for life outside of college.
