Its not too big or too small it perfect.


I didn't really have to consider any other schools because I wanted a quality education and be able to afford it since I'm paying for it all myself. This school seems to have good review from those I've talked too and I am able to afford to send myself there.


The majority of non traditional students brings an amazingly diverse range of experiences and views. This helps to shape your understanding of the workd and other professionals you will someday work with.


The school I attend is unique because of the demographics. Our school is diverse and the average student on the LAC campus is 30 with a family. The classrooms are smaller and the professors are amazing. We are a very hands on community and I find the students here to be very engaged in their learning. It's the perfect University for me.


The University of Southern Maine is located in the beautiful, transitioning city of Portland, Maine. This city is a hub for artists, revolutionaries, musicians, and thinkers of all sorts. Everything is easily accessible by bike, bus, or foot, and the restaurants and bars are on every corner. Portland was deemed one of the "foodiest" cities in the U.S. The university itself is split between two campuses, Gorham and Portland, with shuttle service between the two. The theater program is run by exceptional faculty with incredible amounts of knowledge, and hosts exciting courses like "aerial dance".


Atmosphere. USM is one of the most open minded friendly colleges I have seen. Everyone is willing to lend a helping hand or listening ear. The other thing I noticed is how diverse USM is compared to other places in Maine. One can learn about alomst any country from the students who attend, which I love.


The commuter like school offers many classes at many times. It pleases me and many others


It is a split campus


The unique thing about University of Southern Maine is that it's a school that allows you to forge your own path. It's very much a commuter-based school and it lacks a traditional campus feel, but if you know what you want out of college its a wonderful school that nudges you in the right direction as long as you are proactive and independent about what you want out of your education.


I believe that University of Southen Maine is unique because it its large enough for you to meet a new person everyday but its small enough to recognize people. It is a large commuter school which must help certain students cope with the stress when they know they can return home, and get away from everything. The athletics are fantastic here, its competitive but you can still have fun with it unlike a Division One school.
