My first semester at UMaine has been a blast! My transition was fairly easy as everyone on my floor and in my classes are so friendly and want to learn and have fun doing it. The professors are all here to teach and love to answer any questions that students may have. Most teachers are easy to reach right through their email! I joined the club soccer team and the University Singers and have made multitudes of connections from these while doing the hobbies that I love. I also got a part-time job on campus as a non-work study student and there were still plenty of opportunities for me to obtain a part-time job on campus. The only trouble has been not having an advisor as an undecided student because of the shortage on staff. However, I should be getting one soon as they tell me.It has been a great semester so far!
Review University of Maine
The University of Maine Allows for students to pursue as many interests as they want to, no matter how varied they may be. For example, I am a Marketing major, but was able to participate in a touring production of James and the Giant Peach the Musical during my spring break. The campus makes for a wonderful learning environment and the faculty and staff work hard to see that every student succeeds!
The University of Maine has multiple options for the Adult Student returning to secondary education. Not only are there flexible options for courses, but there are remote sites that allow for live video courses. Whether live or online course, the university staff is helpful in guiding you toward your goals and they make the process easy. Financial aid assistance is available in many forms, some unfamiliar to me. The local center in Belfast is beautiful and lends to many easy hours of study within its walls. With more degree options than other branches of the university, it is always thrilling to embark on another educational journey with the University of Maine.
