Ethan - 05/18/2021

Husson University is a great school. The class sizes rarely if ever breach 50, and the professors are all experts in their field with decades of experience who want to see you succeed. The food is great, and the facilities they offer are crazy. The video program, in particular, is phenomenal in regards to facilities. Within your first semester in the Video Production major students will be using industry-standard cameras and editing software. Husson is a very hands-on school, and you're always learning something new, plus as you build a relationship with your professors, you're also making connections that will make entering the workforce much easier.

Lydia - 09/16/2020

Husson is very community based. The teachers all make an effort to get to know each of their students individually as a person. It isn't a big party school, but people can go off campus to party, UMO is pretty close by. Husson's in the middle of Bangor, so there are a lot of shops and restaurants around, but when you're on campus it doesn't feel like you're in the middle of a city. It feels safe and comfortable.

  6. What kind of person should attend this school?

    I think the student that likes a small classroom and enjoys a small campus, should go here. It is just small enough that everyone is within a 5 minute walk from each other. But it is just big enough that you don't see someone you know everyday.

  7. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    I would like to say, "the person who is not serious about college", but I cant even say that. Husson will accept any student; smart students, well-rounded students, and even the party student. They take each student and mold it into the community, making the student who likes to party grow up because when you are in the Husson environment you want to grow up and you want to reach for your goals. So every type of person should attend Husson because it allows the students to reach for the stars with some guidance and leadership.

  8. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    I think Husson is trying to grow too large too fast. In trying to expand the breadth of the university it is neglecting the needs of the growing number of students on campus. It is overcrowded and there simply is not enough housing. Students are required to live on campus for the first two years, but there aren't enough dorms.

  12. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    The school is small (all classes in two buildings a couple yards apart). This makes finding classes very simple, leaving that stress of entering a new school out of the process. It also means very small classes, so teachers can give you a lot of one on one time when you are struggling. Finding help from the tutoring center is also much simpler because there is much less students to worry about.
