University of Maine Graduate Reviews

3 reviews
The University of Maine is an interesting school with really good "pros" and really bad "cons". Academically the school can be a mixed bag, there are some truly amazing professors and classes offered here. These faculty members really care about you and their job but there are an almost equal number of poor professors. These bad professors are well known but aren't really dealt with. Likewise the school places a big onus on safety but don't plow roads or take care of side walks. Dorms also take on this extreme with many being run down and bad while others are new and well maintained. There is also an underlining trend of a small group of programs being very well founded while most others aren't. Overall the school evens out to be pretty normal, but you'll find some odd extremes here. University of Maine is a good school for the money if you are in New England.

I started at the University of Maine in 2012. I enjoyed my experience so much that I went out of my way to stay for graduate school. The local town of Orono is one of my favorite small towns in all of Maine. The school system is fantastic and has the ability to attract high valued professors due to the wonderful location and great system. The student rec center gym is one of the largest and most advanced in the country. Campus is perfect sized with EVERYTHING in walking distance. This was also ranked one of the safest colleges in the United States (Go Maine!) Sports are fantastic here with D1 athletics and one of the greatest hockey stadiums and student environment. COME TO MAINE, I love it here.
I love the university of maine because it makes me feel at home. A came here from a small downeast town. University of Maine has a very diverse group of people. They helped me a lot through the beginning process.
