What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Maine at Augusta is great. The staff goes over and above for their students and provide a health environment for everyone. Its a small campus, great for people who prefer small and you'll be guaranteed face-to-face time with your professors. Overall, its a great campus and I would recommend it to everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have found that U.M.A. is a great school. The teachers are always willing to help you - even on weekends. Staff email you right back with answers to your questions. The university campus is with walking distance to restaurants and stores. The campus library is great and has a reference librarian there to assist you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I started my college journey at a much larger university and I never felt it was a good fit for me. I switched over to the university of Maine in Augusta two years ago and immediately felt it was a better fit. I feel like my professors respond to my questions/concerned quicker and make sure I fully understand everything. That kind of commitment is understanded in bigger schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of University if Maine at Augusta is that it’s a safe and friendly place to spend time at. It’s a small school so it’s a lot easier to build relationships with other students and even professors. I like attending University of Maine at Augusta because I not only get a good education but the online classes give me the opportunity to learn at my own pace.

They are very welcoming. As a transfer student, all faculty was very helpful during the entire process and continued to be supportive during my enrollment. The academics are challenging and well designed for student learning. I am very comfortable with the university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school, I've been able to get around to tour the the campus and there are many opportunities for students to get active and experience a well rounded college experience. There is housing off campus that is supplied to students. The surrounding area is beautiful and scenic with lots of local business to try. Talking to some of the instructors, they were very helpful and available to give information about the extensive programs offered and help me through my application process.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Maine at Augusta in Bangor could definitely be better. Unfortunately it feels a bit like a ghost town--you never see anyone wandering around or anyone to talk to even during class times. I've heard there is an on-campus gym which seems like a plus although the atmosphere is so drab I never much wanted to go and check it out. I've seen signs for campus clubs, etc. but have never been able to find one I felt like I would really mesh with. I would love it if the campus would come a little more alive but this is a campus full of mostly non-traditional students so I guess it is to be expected. The staff (for the most part) is all really nice and fairly helpful. If you can find the right people to work with you will do well and can get the help you need in a timely manner just make sure you stay on them or you may fall through the cracks. (Unfortunate downside to such a small campus but wide spread campus I think.) Academics seem decent enough, it is no top notch college but the ability to transfer to UMaine once certain requirements are met is a plus if you're looking for something more youthful in atmosphere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely adore the University of Maine at Augusta. As a non- traditional student I find the process to be easier that I had thought it would be. I quickly locate the classes in what I need, as well as in formats that fit into my lifestyle. I have really enjoy my professors/instructors too. They are friendly and willing to help in any way possible. Transferring my credits was easy and painless, allowing me to make the most of my time and money. I highly recommend this University to new and non-traditional students!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have a love hate relationship with the University of Maine at Augusta. I transferred there after one semester at a large school. I applied as a nursing student and was told there was no waiting list, and the students where chosen more by a point system. I have been working at my gen eds and pre reqs for two years now when the other day I received a call a slot had opened up. Three weeks before classes start and after I had already committed to another University of Maine school. I talked with the woman from the nursing office who said it would still be another 4 years to graduate, 6 years in total for me. The Augusta campus does not have enough classes or professors to give it's students the schedule they need. The BSN gradation rate is only 7 percent and I believe it is because they system they have in place currently is not working. Most students attending are adult learners who have been working in a field for awhile now but the nursing department does not take in consideration anything other than academics. Yes, grades are important but so is experience. The professors I have had so far have been, for the most part, great. They care about you and want you to succeed. The teachers will accommodate as much as they can because they know most of the students are coming from long commutes and life can sometimes get in the way. The online classes I have had, have been very great as well. I feel that most of the time I have problems with the admissions or the actually University, rather than the professors. There are no on campus housing so all students live off campus. There are quite a few activities people can join in but because of the commuting situation I do not find myself being a part of those. I have attended some guest lectures and they have been great. The school is very affordable as well and tries to give out as much financial aid and scholarships as possible. I think that the nursing program could be improved highly but I have to say I am glad they have the resources they do for adult learners.
