Watch the housing and make sure you get everything you can from the advisors because a lot of the courseload can be tricky depeding on your major. Also try and get as much financial aid possible, it's an expensive school that will inevitably take care of you if you are willing to work diiligently.

    A great university with a very close knit community. UNE is a great place for undergraduate research, or to pursue the marine sciences. In addition we boast a beautiful campus and the number one return on investment in Maine.

    You WILL fall in love with the location. The University is harder to stay in than it is to get in, so be prepared to be challenged! UNE is full of many different types of people, but most of us strive to help others.

    The University of New England is an excellent college for students seeking a campus with a professional atmosphere and a variety of research opportunities. The campus life is quiet and friendly overall. There aren't a ton of division sports teams; however there are many clubs and other opportunities for students to get involved in.

    This school is mostly a health sciences school. I would not recommend coming here if you intend to focus on a major outside of the health/medical field. Beautiful small campus in biddeford with a graduate and professional campus located in portland.

    Students are very focused on academics. Located right on the Saco River, everywhere you look has a incredible view. A small campus filled with smiles.

    A very expensive college, though it has great opportunities. The teachers aren't fantastic for the core classes, but are much better for the advanced classes. I would recommend this school only if you have money to pay for it.

    University of New England is a school that offers a great education, especially for those interested in a health science profession, and offers even greater friendships. The people who attend this school are awesome and are the type of people you will want to know for the rest of your life. The campus also provides a large amount of opportunities for students to get involved, with various campus events, lots of intramurals, and a variety of clubs and organizations to take part in.

    Although the University of New England has a small student body, the small classes create a great learning environment and produce strong connections with the faculty. I've found that everyone at the university is very kind, and nonjudgemental, from students to faculty. UNE has strong academics and is overall a nice environment.

    University of New England is incomparable to any other school of my knowledge; great location, good people, and a strong classes. The academics are challenging and enlightening, which hopefully develop me into a well-rounded person. However, UNE fails to recognize in some aspects that their students are adults and fails to allow/acknowledge the freedoms of being an adult.
