What Students Are Saying

3.24 Average Rating
UMF is a great place for students that enjoy a modern and diverse lifestyle. There are many different kinds of people here, some from as far away as California and many foreign exchange students. The community and the professors are very supportive and caring.
Tori from Turner, ME
Amazing, top of the line education. Up and coming in the way of facilities. Everyone is eager to help you succeed.
Renee from Hampton, CT
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.
