The University of Southern Maine possesses a charming atmosphere and knowledgeable professors, who each emit a true and radiant passion for teaching.
This school is unique because of it's nursing program: it is organized in such a way that students receive a lot of exposure to different clinical settings. Having a diverse clinical setting arrangement allows students to increase their level of experience and exposure to the different nursing environments and venues out there! Small classes and friendly professors, who each possess a contagious passion for the subjects they teach, truly enrich the learning experience at the University of Southern Maine!
Passion and determination is vital to the success that can be obtained through the college experience. Involving yourself with positive campus events and actively engaging with people who are different from yourself will inevitably open your mind to the possibilities the world has to offer. College is not simply about academic achievement, though that is an extremely important aspect of it. It is important to remember that a 4.0 GPA is not the answer to life's worries and woes, so do not let your self-esteem suffer, if you do not achieve a 110% on your first Biology exam. Set goals for yourself that are not only academic, but also mind-opening: try something new everyday, interact with someone who has interests and hobbies that are unfamiliar to you. You will be very surprised at the great sense of self-validation you feel when you realize that you are someone who not only possesses the will to succeed through rigorous college coursework, but also the will to embrace the unfamiliar and indulge yourself in learning experiences that go beyond the pages of a textbook. Enrich your mind, but also leave it open. Never settle for less in life.

There is so sense of community at this school. Mostly everyone comutes. The school is split up between 2 campuses, on campus housing is in Gorham but most classes are in Portland, so you have to either drive there everyday or take a 45 min bus ride.
All advisors and directors are out to get you in trouble.

USM is split up over several different campuses. You can take a class in any campus, including Gorham, Saco, and Portland. This helps keep the variety of classes up.
The real trick is balancing social life with work ethic. If you have a good enough percentage of both, then you will enjoy yourself.
The meal plans frustrate me a lot because although they're personable, they're not always flexible enough. There are a lot of caf?s and bistros but the main cafeteria has limited hours of operation. Also, there is a lot of emphasis on USMs downfalls and not enough on their accomplishments. After recently getting a new president, I hope this will change.

The University of Southern Maine has one of the best business schools out of any public university in the country. I am persuing my degree in business, and feel that this is the perfect place to complete my schooling. The University also offeres a degree in business, with a consentration in sports management, which I did not find very common in my initial college search. So far I have been very happy with my experience, and am planning on completeing my degree at the University of Southern Maine.
The best advice I can give to students going through the college selection process is, don't make this a life or death decision. An education is an education any way you cut it. Theres no reason to get all worked up and stressed out because you didn't get into a school that costs $50,000/yr. The way I see it, its better to pay an in-state tuition and graduate with less debt, then you can still walk away with a degree of some sort. When you finally get into a school, get involved. Every college or university that you will ever come across has a wide array of groups and activities, and theres something for everyone. You will regret it if all you do is lock yourself in your dorm room and fail to participate or socialize. It is important to do well in your classes, but dont get so comsumed by academics that you miss out on what the college atmosphere is all about.
Theres not a whole lot to say about the university in a negative light, but the opinions do exist. Most students, myself included, find it a hassle to travel between the two campuses which are about twenty minutes away from each other. The tuition has also just gone up to cover a budget shortfall, and I do not qualify for financial aid even though I am one of five kids, four of whome are in college.

Well, there are two parts of the campus, one in Portland and one in Gorham, so you can get the city life in Portland and the more rural campus life in Gorham. Also, the campus is diverse in age, so it's not just traditional students, but older students who are at a different stage in their lives.
What I would say to someone who is looking into schools is to always visit the school before you make a decision. If the campus doesn't give you a good first impression, you won't like it there. Also, look into what classes they offer, because you have to be excited about the classes in order to do well in them. Finances are also important, so if you are looking into an expensive school, try to make sure that the amount of money you would be putting into it is going to be worth it. I see so many people spend thousands more than I do in order to get the same degree I will be getting. The teaching quality is excellent at state schools, and you will learn only as much as you are willing to learn, regardless of where you are, so an expensive school isn't always the best way to go.
Anyone looking for a degree. It's pretty affordable if someone commutes and there are a lot of classes to choose from so anyone really could go.
