Overall, I believe students are under the impression from what they find online that this is a party school. I have found, that although there is some truth to this statement that the university has an accomplished nursing program and an intensive marine science program.

The University of Maine is best known for its large structures that allow students to do certain things that they are interested in. Such as the Collins Center for the Arts, which hosts many different shows, and offers a beautiful place for art majors or anyone for that matter to get way and escape to a peaceful surrounding.

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.
