Student & Graduate Reviews

Biomedical Engineer, Fraternity.

"Waste of money. Its the cheapest school I got into, and it is surely cheap. The money doesnt go anywhere it seems; the dorms are hellish, bathrooms are disgusting, the dining halls are a pathetic, the food is genuinely concerning, the lecture halls are antique, the professors are apathetic and mostly incompetent, the advisors dont care about you (that is assuming they actually speak the same language as you), the book store is sad, etc. I am convinced that the only reason why people go here is because its affordable. They give you half as many spots as you need to park the student population, and will ticket you as often as they possibly can, they will tow you without telling you... The only thing I have to say about this place thats somewhat positive is that its only a few hours away from the closest mountain. Dont go to this cheap, out-dated school. There are plenty of better options."

"My time at the University of Maine was the best four years of my life. I am so happy I made the choice I did. When I was trying to decide where to go to school, I was sure I wanted to leave the state. I wanted to get away, be a new person, and leave the old high school me behind. However, I ended up staying in state. Honestly, it was the best decision I could have made. The University of Maine has amazing programs and I got a wonderful education. More over, I saved money by having in-state tuition and not making life after college absolutely miserable. The programs, services, and extracurricular activities offered at the University of Maine are amazing. I was able to be part of the University Singers, the all girls a capella group Renaissance, Chi Omega sorority and participate in intramural sports. I made friends that will last me a life time. I got to experience the fun and excitement of Maine Day, and see amazing shows on campus. I wouldn't change a thing about my college experience!"
International Affairs Student

"I really enjoyed my time at UMaine. I majored in International Affairs with a concentration in Political Science and had the opportunity to take a variety of courses focused on national security and comparative politics. The professors were fantastic and because many of them had been in other career fields before becoming professors (state department, military, international banking, intelligence) they provided great insight and were very down to earth. One problem with the major at the time was the fact that there were some courses that were required that I believe should not have been (two mandatory Canadian Studies instead of letting students pick a country or a region). Economics was also not required, which ignored a major field of international affairs, so I pursued those courses on my own. I think the program has since changed to address these two issues, but I would recommend that future students look up the current required course list for the International Affairs major just to be sure. Overall, UMaine is a great place with great students, approachable and enthusiastic professors, and a large course offering. I definitely recommend attending for a quality and affordable education."

"Great school with many opportunities. Could have better guidance. The program was good, but did not include the required internship to enter the field, which it's a huge disadvantage. More career counseling and more field training would be a huge asset to students."

"I am currently a senior at University of Maine. I will be graduating in May. I just got accepted into the Advanced Placement Masters Program on campus. I really enjoy this university and can't wait to continue my learning. I'd love to get this scholarship to help me pay to further my education with the professors at this school. They're all insightful and easy to contact. I never would have made it as far as I have without my advisor Kelly Jaksa. She is amazing. She helps out with any problem I've run into over the past few years. I've had medical problems and all of my professors have been great, they've helped me work around every road block and I'm forever grateful. Please consider me for this scholarship!"

"Going to the University of Maine was an eye opening experience. I had never considered myself associated with much of anything that didn't involve sports or cars. Being in such a diverse atmosphere, I found myself in Student Government, the Commuter Lounge and the Advanced Structures and Composites Center. All while living an hour away. If you can dream it, UMaine can make it happen."
