What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a wonderful school that still has a lot of potential for growth in some areas while exceeding in others. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a school that cares about the arts! The staff and faculty are friendly, the only problems occur when you really get involved with them and have to butt heads in order to keep things straight, but this is a more personal occurrence as of right now.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed attending the University of Southern Maine so far. I have grown up in Maine and the campus is only 45 minutes from my parents house which means I can go home regularly. I love being an art student and I haven't met an art professor who I don't like. The arts community is wonderful and I love being around people who have similar interests as me. I lived in Robie Andrews for 2 years and loved it Living on campus was so fun and being around my friends everyday was so worth it. I feel as though every bit of my college experience so far as USM has been worth it.

The University of Southern Maine is such a wonderful place! The atmosphere is absolutely unreal and overall very welcoming. The staff at USM are fantastic and really provide us with a safe, warm environment. If I had to start over USM is the place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Southern Maine is a good school with friendly staff and plenty of opportunities. The only problem I've personally had was the parking problem on Portland campus which, on certain days, can be atrocious. Overall, University of Southern Maine is a good school, though with my limited experience being a full-time student at other colleges my opinion may not hold as much meaning as those who have had that experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my first year I've heard a lot of great things about the school and I expected it to be all hype but people were not lying at all. When I moved in, I was unfamiliar with a lot of places and where classes were, but everyone there was just so helpful and there's a lot do on campus so I was never bored or just sitting around my dorm. Cost of the college is fairly cheap but overall great school. I would definitely tell others to come join the big family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I award the University of Southern Maine three stars. There is some potential in which I believe could increase it's ratings, yet it doesn't appear there will be any improvement in the near future. The university, having recently lowered its budget, is currently in a state of economic progression. Housing applications are reaching record numbers and the university struggles to accommodate it's students, due to it's now limited and outdated dorms. The new cafeteria budget cut also makes the overall experience less appealing because it now has lower quality food, ingredients and meals. However, the cost of attendance is reasonable for it's instate tuition, being one of the cheapest and most affordable universities in Maine. Overall, I believe that the courses are up to date and at the appropriate levels of difficulty. Although, the university has started a long-term investment towards improvement, leaving it under budgeted, and undersized for it's demand of students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm very glad I chose the University of Southern Maine. It is well known for its School of Music, and after only one year I can see why. Everyone in the School of Music is constantly working to get better, and it's a great environment to be around. The campus Gorham campus is right near a Hanford and Rite Aid, while the Portland campus is just a mile walk away from Merrill Auditorium.

Most of the professors seem to be more concerned with doing the bare minimum, aren't very involved, and do not care about their students' growth or success.
