3.80 Average Rating
Easily one of the best colleges in the state. Educationally, Athletically, Spiritually. Small campus and has that family like environment. Great place and happy to be a part of this.
Ntumba from Gorham, ME
My experience has been rewarding. I have learned a lot of valuable information so far. I look forward to the rest of my program.
Sakenua from Thonotosassa, FL
The atmosphere is community-oriented. Very small, close-knit community. Almost like continuing high school as it is a very small community of people.
Alison from Portland, ME
faculty and staff very helpful and easy to get ahold of, want you to succeed.
extremely expensive.
beautiful campus with many activities for everyone.
Rose from Jay, ME
Very interested in student success! I haven't enrolled (yet) but have already talked to professors about my degree and possible internships when I do attend. New business card and Connections program sound like they will also contribute to student success after graduation!
