Tessa Winship 12/15/2019

The University of Southern Maine helped me realize my full potential. My coursework in Communication was practical to real life, and the professors made learning enjoyable. USM is a very community based college, and it does its best to make the students feel that they are part of a community, even if the students are online. The faculty and staff are focused on student success, which makes USM awesome.

This school is awesome for a public university. USM is a great place with quality teachers, that take a little time to find but worth it. I had a great experience, and really was able to find myself and my adult voice with the help of my advisor and professors.
