Could be boring if you don't join clubs or seek out fun but there's plenty to do if you do.
A small beautiful town engulfed with its own culture. It feels like absolute home regardless of where you are from. Everyone is so welcoming compared to other schools and college towns.
The university is primarily a education university but the creative writing program is good too. It's a really close community, which I enjoy. Everything is withing walking distance and I easily got an apartment ad job near by. It's also pretty cheap tuition wise which is always good.
I really like UMF. It has clubs to interest just about everyone, which is great because it gives people an opportunity to participate in something other than just the academics, which usually makes the person less-stressed. It is also located in a convient spot, it's close to shops and restruants. Over-all it's a great place to go to school.

Embrace the unknown. Too many people fear change. Know that God is real and that he has been working within you and around you already. Education is life.
As a high school student, motivation has not been you friend. After high school, no one will remind you when something is due or that you should be working on your essay all semester long. You control your education and it is up to you to decide what it means to you. High school comes easily to you; most of school has been that way. In college, though, there are unknowns. You don’t know what will happen, but that shouldn’t scare you. Unknown may not mean anything bad, but it may mean change. Change is what you make of it. It can be great if you want it to. People do learn from mistakes because learning is a constant. Life is full of lessons and education does not just happen in the classroom. College makes that perfectly clear. Lastly, among everything you experience in college, the most vitally important and predominantly clear is the truth of God’s existence. You have passions and He will help you find them.
The food, especially on the weekends. There isn't much variety and it takes some getting used to.
It is a small, very friendly school with a community feel. If you want to be a teacher, this is the college for you. It is laid-back, outdoorsy, and liberal. However, the other majors are not given as much focus. The classes are not demanding. The students are all middle-class, white, and from Maine or the New England area.
Easy-going, open-minded, creative people. We're a very liberal school so you have to be open to new ideas.
I knew everything about this school before I applied. I had friends currently at this school.
The people are so friendly and the school itself feels like a community.
The professors. They are so welcoming and very easy to talk to. If you have a question or problem, they want to answer or fix it. They are also very accomidating and are willing to work with you.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that this school is considered a "suitcase" campus, meaning, during the weekends and breaks a lot of students leave and go back home.
The University of Maine at Farmington has built a reputation for its educaiton program. Some of the finest teachers come out of UMF with a great education given to them by very knowledgeable professors. The university is also known for its perfect size (2,000) students and having a good professor to student interaction. One final thing that UMF is known for is how close it is to Sugarloaf USA and other mountians.
Friendly, outgoing, and adventerous.
A person who wants to be a number... if you want to be a person known to your professors come to UMF.
The bets thing about UMF are the students. Everyone is relaxed and friendly; with a small school it's hard to form intense cliques. The professors are approachable and they're always available even if it's not office hours. The laid back attitude and openess of the campus community is really what makes the difference.
People may think that we are a bunch of New England "townies." that may be somewhat accurate, but in truth, people here are pretty studious, especially for this type of college.
If forced to type-cast, and make sweeping generalizations of a varied student body, I'd say that students fall into three basic categories: Non-traditional students, local yokels (the majority,) and nerds in T-shirts. (And Pajamas.)
The liberal arts environment probably portends us to be a bunch of whacky, unusual people/ hippies. That is certainly the case. We have diversity on this campus to be proud of, for sure.
The worst part is that it's not easy making friends here. The best part is that there are plenty of opportunities to meet people if you like.
I'm not sure there really is a stereotype here. This is a melting pot.
We have a chapter of Rotaract which seems to be pretty big here, and which does things all over the world. The Alliance seems to have a good following. There are many craft and art organizations, as well as language and culture groups. The multicultural alliance seems to do okay.
There are TONS of arts events here. Many plays and such on campus.
There are many alternatives to drinking and partying, that are safe and neutral. The computer club, and other gaming groups have huge followings and Zombies VS Humans (ZVH) is quite popular.
We have a radio station and any student is welcome to DJ. The station also streams to the web. There are some dorms devoted to health and drug free living, and the campus itself is smoke-free. Smokers have to go a good distance to get away from the buildings. The bars in town are really flocked more with locals than with students. Most of the people here are not of age to drink, anyhow. Alternatives are definitely encouraged. But at the same time, we have a chapter of SSDP, which attempts to promote better legislation like legalization of marijuana, and wants to ensure students are safe if they do end up experiment with recreational drugs or alcohol.
Of course, this is largely Irish territory, so St. Patties day is a big day of partying, but other than that one time of year, you don't see too much of it. We're all far too busy.
Many of us are Red Sox fans, and fans of the other Boston teams, and once in a while day trips are offered, such as to games at Fenway Park, or harbor cruises in Boston, as well as ski excursions or hiking closer by.
Because this is back woods Maine, you can actually go to the store and get things like local, fresh maple syrup, or maple candies, or honey. There are farms nearby too, where one can go for treats or farm goods. You also have stuff like county fairs once a year. It's really a mixture of New-England/ Boston/ college culture with small-town mania. The school tries very hard to integrate itself with the town, and the town does integrate itself in terms of businesses catering to students, but the local natives are still pretty reserved.
If I'm up at a rare hour, chances are good its because I'm pushing a deadline on a paper due tomorrow. I like my beauty sleep, as I think a majority of UMFers do. Not that we can take it all the time. We're kept busy enough.
It seems to me, and I could be wrong, that there isn't much dating going on here. I guess people are busy, reserved, and come from too far distances to be interested in one another, as well as often being already married at a young age, which seems to be the local culture, or commuting, and already taken by someone closer to home. I'd say that the Puritans had some influence on the under-riding culture. At any rate, there probably isn't a lot of open same-sex dating because the regional attitude would make this difficult.
As I mentioned, there is somewhat of an anti-social climate here, and I live on my own, so I would say that I haven't really made any friends here (due to personal choice and the fact that I have friends in other places already,) but that if you want to meet people, you'd find this easiest in clubs and some of your classes. That's where I've met most of the people I've met. Also, if you stay in a dorm and/or have a meal plan, you are bound to get to know people who like the same things you do. Plenty of opportunities are provided for those who seek....
In general, it's difficult to summarize our diverse social atmosphere, so I think I'd say whatever you are, you could bring that with you, and maybe grow a little in the process too.
Probably the dining hall food, homework, and finance.
Pretty much non-existent in my opinion. Pretty low key, anyway.
I don't know. Pretty low key, I guess. If there are any fraternal organizations they're limited to honors and psychology societies. We don't have any real frats.
Initially, you might be looking at Maine Street, with its row of businesses. There are a couple other commercial streets. Once you get past that, you see a lot of houses spread apart from one another. If you go far enough, you start to see woods and mountains.
