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!
The University of Maine is an absolutely fantastic school to go to. It is beautiful all year round, and their engineering program is top notch, regardless of which engineering you take. The one thing I would change, though, is their policy of snow days. Sometimes it is WAY too dangerous to go to class, like in the middle of a Nor'easter, and they still tell us to go anyway. Other than that, everything else is great!
The University of Maine is a place where anyone in Maine wanting to receive a beautiful education will go. Not only are the professors very understanding, but the food is good, the campus is beautiful, and there are activities for every type of person out there! The University of Maine is home of an amazing author, Mr. King. If he can go to the University of Maine and make it big, anyone can!
