Here at UNE you’ll find a very small campus with a friendly student body, staff, and professors. The freshman dorms are borderline claustrophobic, especially if you're a freshman in a triple. Not known for being a party school, this university is usually quiet on weekdays. There are plenty of clubs to sign up for but finding time to go to them can be challenging if you’re devoted to homework and studying. However, the campus does give students the opportunity to participate in some great weekend activities!
If one of your main concerns during a college hunt is the food, I suggest you look somewhere else. As someone who isn’t too picky about what they eat, I can’t say I’m happy with what I’m served. As for the safety of students living on campus I’m shocked at how easy it is for people to walk in and out of dorm buildings. On the flip side, there has never been a time I felt uncomfortable walking around campus by myself whether it be to the Alfond Forum or the beach.
Review Your College
I love it at the University of New England. I have found myself a group of friends that have similar ideals that I have. I found a work study job on Campus within my first month at school. I have joined clubs, and really stepped out of my comfort zone to become who I am now. I love how personable my professors are.
The party scene at UNE is kind of underground which is nice because it isn't a huge party school like say UNH or URI. It is in a beautiful area!
I would like to see the campus grow in some ways to accomidate more living opportunities.
Academics are great, you really get what you're paying for here. It's also one of the safest universities.There is no ethnic diversity on campus, pretty much everyone is caucasian. Regarding diversity of interests among students, there are all different characters on campus. The party scene on campus is nonexistent if you are an underclassman or not on a sports team. Parties are typically held by male upperclassmen that live off campus with their teammates. Sports aren't that big of a deal at UNE if you're looking for a school with a lot of school spirit you won't find much here. The campus is beautiful, I'm sure after all the construction is over we will have some great new facilities in the Fall of 2017. Overall it feels like an extension of high school, not in a bad way it's just a very small and isolated school. UNE will advertise the fact that we are so close to Portland but in reality, there are no buses to Portland on the weekends when you actually have time to go.
