University of Maine Reviews
If you're weird as hell then this is the school for you! Very glad I'm transferring this place tested my mental health and is filled with typical, stuck up, rich new englanders. If you're from down south, do not come here. I have always liked Maine but this school ruined the state for me. I thought people would be nice but I was painfully wrong. I didn't realize that kids from Maine and the immediate new england area went to high schools with a graduating class of 50 kids or less. Never met so many weird people in a confined area in my entire life.
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.
I wish I could rate the University of Maine with 3.5 stars instead of 4, due to the failure to support out-of-state students financially and its lackadaisical academic advising. With that being said the array of extracurricular activities available to students is fantastic. Greek life on this campus to me is one of the best in the country and one of the most wonderful organizations I've had the opportunity to be apart of. It not only provides an inclusiveness towards other organizations and the campus as a whole, but encourages students to work harder in both academia and community service. Along with Greek life this university has also provided many leadership opportunities that I wouldn't have had, had I gone somewhere else. While diversity on this campus tends to be lacking I was able to work with different multicultural organizations to change that aspect. All in all the University of Maine is a school worth attending if you have a specific plan.
