I am a current freshman at UNE, and I love it here! The classes are not only challenging (in a positive way), the class sizes are small, allowing each student to get one on one time with the professor. The largest lecture hall hold 75 students!
The school recently added to its sports team with football and women's rugby, bringing in more students. Hockey will always be the most popular sport for Nor'easters though!
While the dorms are small, they are well kept and you can make it your own space, your dorm truly becomes your home here. Along with that, campus life is great! There are fire pits in the quad that students can use to roast smores or just have a nice fire to sit by, you can kayak and paddle board for free, go to the schools own personal beach, or join one of the amazing clubs here!
The new dining hall has amazing food!
As a small woman, I feel incredibly safe on campus

As far as the overall experience remember that "you will only get out what you decide to put in" and that there are things that this University is trying to improve- diversity being one of these issues. Currently the female to male ratio is about 2:1 and the population of the students are nearly 95% white ethnically. The academics are iffy- the success rate in courses is very dependent on you get as a professor, and there are not many great ones. You are better off getting the smallest meal plan, as the food id mediocre at best and it is best to go grocery shopping ever couple of weeks and use the communal kitchens in the dorms than eat at the dining hall. The campus is beautiful though and the activities that are held at and around campus are usually a lot of fun!
So far my experience at UNE has been decent. I am a transfer student and the transfer was VERY stressful. I was always being directed to someone else there wasn't one person who could just help me with the overall transfer. I had to sign up for classes on my own which was very difficult being new to the college and their software system I had no idea which classes to sign up for that applied to my particular degree. Besides the transfer my experience at UNE has been wonderful the Professors are all very friendly and helpful, the school is clean, library hours are great!
