Colleges in Maine
Claiming the spot as the easternmost state, Maine has warm summers and severe winters. Known for its jagged coastline and seafood, it’s fitting that most colleges in this state are clustered around the Gulf of Maine. The Pine Tree State has a mix of public and private institutions, with only one for-profit college. There are thirteen baccalaureate-conferring institutions, the oldest being Bowdoin College, which also claims the status of most prestigious. When it comes to the economy, top industries include finance, insurance, real estate, and rental/leasing. Government, educational services, and the manufacturing of paper and wood products follow those. Popular attractions in Maine include Acadia National Park, Kennebunkport, and the Portland Museum of Art.
