The University of Maine is a good, cold place to be. There's a good atmosphere around autumn, but winter is rather mellow. The food is definitely edible; however, contrary to popular belief, eating the same things for months in a row isn't the most amusing thing. There is always something going on during the weekend and there's a large chance the police will be attending as well. Somehow, they are always fashionably late and make quite the entrance. The sports culture in UMaine is definitely alive. You'd be surprised how many loyal fans are willing to stick it out in freezing temperatures with enough energy to cheer every play during football games. These all make this university what it is. The harsh winter gives chance for more academic focus, and the meal plans ensure the validity of freshman fifteen. Everyone is friendly, including the police, and school spirit really brings everyone together. This is somewhere I've become very comfortable and happy in, despite the cold.
I love being part of the University of Maine student body. However, I see many opportunities within the school where they could truly excel about other New England schools. The school could be doing so much more with their farm facilities, and kitchens. There could be a real relationship within the two, however the University doesn't use Witter to it's full extent.
The worst experience of my entire life was making the mistake to go to the compass in Augusta. One person owns the whole compass a bully named Roger Mackbach who regularly uses racials slurs said he hates gay people and women violently kicks doors and will get anyone fired if he don't like them he is a horrible human being he owns the whole school allocates money from the school to pay for all of his food and has said how much he hates black people
It isn't hard to make amazing friends. I came from Rhode Island not knowing a single person that was going to attend UMaine with me and now that I'm back at home I miss being north. The academics are challenging but do-able, and they have over 200 different clubs/organizations to join.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Maine is 89%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Be yourself. It sounds cliche but it's true. It is very easy to lose yourself when you change locations and meet new people. You want them to like you, you want them to accept you so you compromise with yourself and change who you are. Don't. Root yourself in something as simple as writing. Or running. Or painting. Anything that is special to you and cannot be tainted by others. Keep part of you tucked away for you, for the moments you need to remember yourself. Also, just get the damn tattoo.
They seem to pretty cool. Just remember, if you are struggling, they probably are too so chances are asking for help may be the best way to build friendships.
What's unique about the University of Maine compared to other schools I considered and attended is that people, faculty and students alike, are usually so friendly. Campus always feels inviting and safe, it's just big enough so I don't always know everyone but small enough so that I always know at least one friendly face in the room from another class or a club I'm involved in.
As a journalism major, I had the chance to write for the newspaper, work with the television channel and do a little radio. I felt that academically I could really excel because I was allowed to try a little of everything.
It isn't that big of a deal but some of the ways buisiness gets handled around here is a bit off. By that I mean they sell more parking permits than spaces (assuming everyone won't be on campus at the same time) and there are some issues that aren't resolved in the way they should be. However, with the economy looking the way it does I can completely understand that most of these decisions are being made to counter-act the budget deficit.
I love the fact that UMaine has so many student organizations. I have been so involved with everything from rugby to human rights to speech and debate.
The type of person who should attend this school are people willing to put effort into their studies and who want to learn. It also helps if you don't mind a lot of rain and mud, just from a weather perspective.
Umaine is a unique Learning community tucked in North-Central Maine.
I am a resident assistant, and therefore am very involved with UMaine's social life. We always have something going on, whether it's a concert or a student-lead event or just going to the hockey games.
The sense of community is the best part of Umaine. Community made it feel like home.
I think a person who enoys the outdoors would be best suited to attend the University of Maine. There are so mnay outdoor excursion opportunities on campus and the surrounding areas. Also, if you're interested in business or engineering, those programs are very strong.
the most frustrating thing about Umaine is the parking situation. They continue to take away commuter parkin to allow more space for residents, and all it does is creates a major hassle for those that do not live on campus.
I wish that I had known how stubborn people are at the Financial Aid office. I wish I had known how difficult it was to program in scholarships that I ad received as well as dealing with a new web design that really did not make any sense at all.
The University of Maine is know for its College of Engineering. There are many things to do on campus. CAB has some kind of event everynight, however they tend to be boring. There is always a party! Usually at the Frats but you can always find one. OT is the biggest and most expensive place for apartments, but its close to camus and only students live there. The dorms are great for your first year or so, but after that everyone gets an apartment! The rooms are big and they have nice ferniture.
You've got a range. You have the kids from southern Maine who are "stuck-up" brand-name wearing, and then you have the kids from the north who are potatoe farming hicks. You've got your typical frat boys who rage and the soririty girls who haze and wear letters 24/7. You've got your outdoors kids and your video gamers. There's really every type of student here.
Yes and No. UMaine students do keep to themselves, but I have found a lot of really great people here. Also, many of my friends are out-of-staters.
The biggest negative stereotype that I have seen is that everyone is from away. Coming from Wisconsin, I knew I was going to a public state school, and most state schools have a majority of in state students.
I brag about our campus. It's beautiful any time of year and always filled with friendly and helpful people. There is more to college than just the studies and our campus always has something to do!
I love it here! UMaine is absolutely home away from home! No place has this much going on and yet still allows at least half the campus to know your name at the same time. We're big, but we're still small and "homey" too. It's the perfect balance!
Classes here at Maine tend to be somewhat smaller. Because the university only has about 10,000 students it allows for the students to be well spaced out with all the majors offered. I feel this is a key aspect for the university because it allows professors to have more one on one time with the students!
