The Pine Tree State earned its nickname for good reason, but lush forests alone aren't responsible for Maine's picturesque reputation. One can't leave out the striking coastline, rolling mountains, and scenic waterways. Oh, and the seafood's not bad either.
There are 27 colleges in Maine, 15 public and 12 private, offering a wide range of programs and majors. Maine has both small schools (defined as less than 2000 students) and "very large" ones (10,000 or more students) and everything in between, including community colleges, in urban and rural environments.
The University of Maine) (UMaine) is the largest university in the state, and its flagship campus is located in Orono, making it the only Land Grant University in the country located on an island.
