University of Maine Reviews

I am in the hybrid (partially online, partially in-person coursework) Master of Social Work program at UMaine, and I have loved it so far! Working at another system college, I find myself very critical of our institutions sometimes, but I have very little to complain about from a student perspective. My faculty are excellent, there are abundant support and professional development opportunities (including fun ones, like Ted Talks!), and the hybrid format reinforces cohort-style learning but allows working professionals to further their education.

University of Maine was a great experience that was significantly cheaper than other state Universities. The quality of education was among the best in the state especially the engineering department. Lots of activities to do with one of the best public university recreation centers in the U.S.. Plenty of trails exists for walking, biking, cross country skiing if you are into outdoor activities. People are friendly and violent crime is virtually non-existent compared to other schools located in large cities. There is plenty of nightlife and Umaine is ranked high in the party scene, lots of fun and you'll never be bored. Overall it is a perfect consideration for someone trying to keep their costs low and their education level at a maximum.
I was an online student and enjoyed engaging with the other students. There were a lot of recourse and I was able to access a lot of what i needed right on their web site. I found the staff as well as the other students helpful and I believe I was a help to the institute as well. Being apart of something bigger than myself was a big esteem booster and I learned a lot by being a team player.
The University of Maine is a nice place to get an education and though I did not experience the on campus life, I have no doubt one would find it as resourceful and helpful as I did via its online system. I found the professors to be helpful and the faculty as a whole were all about the students success. You really cant ask more from a institute. When you have all those people in your corner it is much easier to reach out and find the assistance you need.
