What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to the University of Southern Maine in 2017 from Rhode Island, and I felt it had so much more to offer than the colleges I had looked at in my home state. I fell in love with the area and welcoming atmosphere, but most of all, I felt like I was getting a proper college education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Southern Maine is a great option for a student who is looking for a low cost, quieter college experience. USM is a split campus. There is a campus in Portland, Maine and in Gorham, Maine. There are some majors that are based on USM's Lewiston-Auburn campus as well. The school also offers online classes, and most live classes do have an online element. The split campus isn't an issue at all, students can ride the Metro for free, and the buses are very reliable. There are lots of opportunities to be found at this school, as long as one is willing to look. Students and professors alike are accommodating, inclusive, and friendly. Anyone looking for a quieter, but still fun undergraduate experience should consider the University of Southern Maine!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it. I actually transferred from another college, and I can honestly say that that was probably one of the best decisions I made concerning school wise. The first day that I toured USM i fell in love. This school made me feel safe and I just felt like I was at home.

I have visited USM multiple times, and everytime I am reminded of why I chose to go there! I am so excited to be attending USM, and am glad to be part of the Huskies. My pride runs far and true to USM. It is a very beautiful college, in an amazing location. I know I will be inspired to do great things!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My professional life started when I walked into my first class at University of Southern Maine. I feel supported by my teachers and inspired by my fellow students. In the past, when I have looked towards the future -- I never could see a clear goal. Having been at this school for not even two full semesters, I already have a vision and clear steps forward. If you like a small-town feel with big-town opportunities, try USM. Go huskies!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally love this university from the split campus between Portland and Gorham, to the amazing track team. I feel very at home here and I plan to stay here for my entire college career. There could be healthier food, but the lack of health food is made up for by the extensive extracurricular events and sports.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think its a great school. It has its ups and down. But for being a smaller state school I think they do a great job. The professors are always present and are very knowledgable in their subject and are always prepared. I would definitely recommend USM to other students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This review will be about how the administration handles the different situations. I had to redo an assignment for one of my classes a while back, which I did and got a perfect score. This information was not communicated between the administration staff and I received an email telling me that I was being dismissed from my program. The staff removed me from my classes before telling me and have been very slow in returning my emails. While waiting for responses I tried to re-enroll myself in the courses that I was taken out of and found that one of them closed from the time I was taken out. I'm am 100% not impressed with how this situation was handled. It's basically setting the student up for failure when you tell them this information 1 week before the semester starts and expect them to figure out what to do next. Then, the fact that I was removed from my classes before I was even informed of anything is not acceptable. There are only two things keeping me from transferring: 1.) The tuition is in the range of what I can afford and 2.) some of the classes I've already completed wouldn't transfer over to the same program at another college.
