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.
