With a campus adjacent to the Northern Maine Woods, the University of Maine at Presque Isle is a regional campus of UM in a pastoral setting in the northeast part of the state. US News & World Report repeatedly lauds UMPI, ranking it number 14 on its Top Public Schools for Regional Colleges of the North list and number six in the area for Graduates with the Least Debt. UMPI offers 25 bachelor’s degree programs and its Psychology, English, and History majors are available entirely online. The university’s campus also marks the beginning of the Maine Solar System Model which stretches out 54 miles along US Route 1.
This school feels like its own little community, and I absolutely love how welcoming it is. The faculty and staff work hard to not only please the students, but to also create lasting relationships. The friends I have made here within my first year is astounding, and I am so happy that I have chosen to attend this school.
As I write this it is currently snowing and I am enjoying the fact that the heat is excellent in all the building on and off campus. I live in a dorm called Skyway and it is for students 21 and older. This campus truly makes me feel as if I belong here. Every time I walk to and from classes to meals or to the gym I just get this sense of pride knowing that I am an Owl.
