University of Southern Maine is a very diverse, open minded school that allows students to interact with one another by learning about each other's cultures and expressing their views on various subjects that tend to be very often brought up, and also gives students the opportunity to take the classes they need and want based on their schedule which makes it very convenient for them. USM provides fun, interesting classes that determine students to stick to them and motivates them to keep going until the end.
Finding the right college is not about choosing the college that is most popular and has the best reputation. It is about being able to get what you need from it while being successful at the same time in order to further your carrear. You can get the same degree going to a $40,000 school as you do going to a $10,000 school. You have to make it so it works around your circumstances because it does matter a lot how much money you put into going to college versus how much you actually get when you finish it. Most students in college don't have the money to afford expensive colleges and housing, and a lot of them don't qualify for financial aid either so it is smart to choose the best college that satisfies your requirements for your degree and also doesn't require much money. Also gettin involved in as many activities as possible and interractive with new people every day helps in learning more about what you can do to improve your studies and learning and just makes life easier when you're going to school.
The environment is very clean and friendly and it is very easy to interract with people and make new friends. The campus buildings are not easy to get lost in, which makes it very easy for new students to attend their classes, and for everybody else in general. The way it is set up is very beautifully done, and allows a lot of space for people to meet up for class work, and even regular conversations. The fraternity, off campus houses give a chance for students to relax and have fun after school.

Advice that i would give to students and their parents looking for colleges: 1: look for as many types of financial aid as possible, but if you dont need financial aid, dont take it save it for people who really do need it. 2: choose the college that is best for you, not for its name, its standing amoung other colleges, etc. Choose it because you want to go there. 3: Remember your schoolwork, grades, and future are the reason you are going to school, not what happens on campus, or who you hang out with. Students and Parents need to remember it is about the students future, what they want to do and where they want to be 4+ years from now.
The best thing about my school is the wide variety of classes offered, and the variety of classes required for a students core curriculum, makes the student more well rounded.
the worst thing about USM, would be the number of students who dont really care. The ones who have no problem paying for school and all of the expenses that come along with it. They act like they dont care and forget that it is a struggle for some people. I also dont like how in some classes you need books or this fee or that fee, and the school, teacher, classes forget that not everyone can pay 20 here 50 there... they forget we are not all upper class people.

Go to Community College for 2 years. You have an addition 2 years to further hone in on what you want to do with your life, and you save a boatload doing so--as in 2 years for the cost of one semester at a big university.
Professors who teach at USM choose to do so because they support the public university system. You cannot get a better education for the price.

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.
