The University of Maine at Farmington is a public, 4-year institution, and is associated with the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. Located on a 55-acre campus among the mountains and lakes in the western region of Maine, the college boasts a 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio, with 64% of their courses serving 20 students or less. UMF offers over 40 undergraduate, graduate, certificate, and pre-professional programs, as well as the opportunity to create self-designed majors. The college’s Mainely Outdoors program offers access to a number of outdoor recreation sites, including the Sugarloaf Ski Resort, the Maine Huts & Trails System, and Mt. Blue State Park.
The campus is amazing, you can feel close to nature and isolated, or suburban and connected to the world - depending on where you feel like walking. The teachers care about their students and you can tell, you can stay after class for as long as you want, take them to dinner, lunch, just to keep the conversation going. The classes are intense but you can leave them knowing that you've learned something new every day.
