I learn a lot and the professors push you to think for yourself.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the dining staff have been rude but it's not often enough to be a problem.

The university is a small campus compared to other schools, but that helps with getting to build connections with your professors. Most professors in the Child Development program are very friendly and caring- if you build a relationship with them while you're taking the class you will have a connection for life. Campus life is lively and there is a huge Diversity & Inclusion program for it being a PWI.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dorms and Dining Halls are not the best, but better than the usual school. Lots of options for dietary restrictions but dining hall hours are not the most flexible. Students tend to damage the dorms (especially freshman-only dorms) which means the whole hall usually has to split up the damage prices.

I love the community and the wide-open spaces with nature.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Not very good at icing the sidewalks in winter...

I valued the nature surrounding the university; it is very different than the city life I am used to. As a Fine Arts student, the art facility feels very homely. The food was good, the dorms were fair and overall everyone I came across was nice.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

For me, UMaine didn't have the right connections or networking opportunities I would have liked to have.

I have very much enjoyed my experience at the University of Maine. The professors are kind and always want students to succeed. In addition, there are many clubs to join. I have joined the dance club, outing club, American Chemical Society, Residental Hall Association, and Women in STEM. The UMaine campus is a beautiful place for someone to get their undergraduate degree.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As a prospective student, you should know that the dining halls do not provide the most incredible food. It's edible but not enjoyable to consume. Additionally, the campus is right by a paper mill, so it smells in the morning from time to time.

I transferred in Fall 2020 during the middle of the COVID pandemic. Despite the majority of the classes being online for the next few semesters, the professors were incredibly helpful and did their best to look out for us when they could. Clubs continued to thrive, although virtual. While I did have to add multiple classes due to extra requirements my previous college didn't have, I will be graduating on time thanks to the hard work of my advisor and other staff.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food is okay, like most college food. Also, the location of the college can be difficult for out-of-state students to travel to. While there is a grocery store in town, the majority of stores and amenities are located roughly 30 minutes away in Bangor. There is reliable free bus transportation, but a car would be very helpful as it ends rather early in the day. Some dorms are in worse shape than others.
