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!

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.
I love this school! One of the greatest things about it is it's location, located literally right on the ocean (we even have our own private beach). It is also a short drive to downtown Saco, Biddeford and roughly a half hour drive to Portland. The school is good with keeping students busy (especially on weekends) and the new cafeteria is to die for!
