What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
The Classes at the University of Maine are very informative and challenge you as a student to think and work. The teachers are friendly and have impressive degrees, you are learning from so of the best here at UMaine. It is impossible to walk out of any of your classes without learning something. Based on your major the amount of classes you are required to take a semester can fluctuate but, if you make sure you take what is required of you and work hard the class won't be as bad. Make sure you keep up on your work though, the teachers are excellent and expect excellence out of you.

Again, this is what you make of it. I am currently a Biology student enrolled in the Honors Program. I have time to myself, but the classes are pretty rigorous. Studying and doing work is essential in each of my classes. However, for some students the classes are not nearly as difficult. It all depends on your schedule and intended major.

While challenging and time consuming, I'm keeping in mind that other universities might be much harder (like an Ivy League school.)

BIO 100 was awful, the other gen eds were challenging but as long as you stay on top of things you'll be fine.

As a Civil Engineering Major I am in some of the hard science and math classes but there is tutor programs provided by the University as well as more than willing professors and TA's

The first semester for me was tough was just adapting to the school and was dealing with many things. The next semester i got level head planted my feet on the ground and got serious. College isn't so tough you just have to be responsible and actually go to class. The classes are great I'm in engineering some classes are tougher than the other but you will never stop learning.
