What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a really nice school, the teachers understand you and everyone is incredibly accepting. It is far more accepting of a community than high school ever was. There are many groups on campus to be able to get involved with, from Greek Life all the way to a Hammock Club! There is something here for everyone to be involved with, even if you think your interests may be a little far fetched.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like the school. All the professors are all so friendly and they go out of the way to help you one on one. There are also many resources that students can take advantage of. There are so many clubs that students can join and there is always a place for students to be with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has been okay, pretty cold and snowy in the winter. Driving on campus is very bad, lots of potholes and tiny streets. Parking is even worse I think half the school has been ticketed. The place is a ​mess in the winter when it comes to walking to class, snow days do not happen often. It is kinda a big party school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally really enjoy UMaine. I’m not in Greek Life, or politically active at all, but I’ve still managed to find people who I can thrive with. Most of the professors are pretty decent, although a vast majority of them haven’t updated their webpages in six years, so it’s difficult to tell when their office hours are if you somehow lost your syllabus. I’d say that the dorms are decently nice. Some buildings are definitely nicer than others (Kennebec is nicer than Somerset and Hart, but not as nice as Colvin or Balentine). The rec center on campus is really nice, and has all new equipment that’s been purchased within the last four years, so that’s excellent. Academics are a really mixed bag, and depend pretty much exclusively on your professor and their personal policy. But, overall, I’d give UMaine a solid 8 out of 10.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the University of Maine is a decent school and you can get a good education for what you end up paying for. There are some things I would definitely like to see less of like the rampant alcohol use on campus or the name of Little Hall but overall, it's decent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maine is a very welcoming community. At freshman orientation, you are greeted with the "Hearty Maine Hello" and are made to feel a part of the student body immediately. Be prepared for a long, cold winter, but that just means more time for skiing! Umaine, in my opinion, is best for natural sciences and engineering.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

From Pennsylvania it was a big culture shock. It is a force when you have to go outside in the winter considering when it is 0 degrees out it is considered a nice day. This school attracts many kids from my with advertisement of the vast outdoor activities that can always keep you active. That's a lie. In the winters everyone is stuck inside forming an obscene drug culture. This causes greek life to be a huge part of campus. Although I have many friends in frats I will note that the hazing is out of control. I can see why this school is appealing to people but if you are from out of state you must prepare yourself for the isolation and winters.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university is overall a great experience. The people are very nice and professors are always willing to help. Even private tutors are available for students struggling with a subject. College is extremely popular for its engineering field and natural resources field which does not fail to make it mark. I' currently a forestry major in UMaine and it is a great college overall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the University of Maine is a good school. I enjoy going there and am happy I made the choice to attend. The campus food isn't bad but it isn't the best. The dorms are nice and the RA's care but aren't too pushy. The professor's typically make sure to have office hours.
