The University of Maine is the flagship institution of the University of Maine System. It is a land-, sea-, and space-grant university and the only research institution classified by the Carnegie Foundation in the state of Maine. UMaine’s students work on research projects for NASA, the U.S. Military, and the National Science Foundation. Its recycling programs, full-time sustainability coordinator, and green-certified buildings have all contributed to its place on The Princeton Review “Green Colleges” list.
I have found solace at the University of Maine. Whether it be in class, in the student union, or even up in my favorite tree, I always feel like I'm part of something. Like they say, you're in a great place.

Whether you are a stereotypical jock, party animal, nerd, or somewhere in between, you will fit right in with the University of Maine. The campus is pretty large, but not too overwhelming for first-year students.Overall, I love it here, even if it is a little far from home.
