Study hard and not last minute. Seek help if you need it. The library is the savior.
Seth from Old Town, ME
Get Your Work done first and always go to office hours if you need it. The professors are really there for you.
Caitlyn from Wilmington, DE
College passes by so quick make every moment of it. University of maine has many opportunities but they won't come knocking on your door, go out and join things, never live with regret.
Rhanmis from Lawrence, MA
Tour the campus before deciding. It is quite large compared to other schools in Maine. Don't get the biggest meal plan, you won't need it. Make new friends, don't just stick with the old ones. Don't take bio 100 unless you have to. Order your books in the online bookstore before the semester starts. Make sure you get a MaineCard during orientation, or be prepared to wait 3 hours for one.
Ashley from Conway, NH
Take advantage of all the school has to offer. Don't sit in your dorm all day doing nothing or you will be miserable. Go to class, teachers typically always ask questions on the exam about what they said in class. Take good notes, but don't write everything down. If you're having trouble in a class don't be afraid to ask for help. UMaine has many free tutoring programs on campus that you should take advantage of.
Sydney from Naples, ME
College is life is much different, whether you've already been told this or not you can't expect to not work/study and get good grades. Put effort into what you are doing, you're working toward a major that you choose. The University of Maine has multiple options for majors, minors and even graduate level degrees. So what ever you are interested in UMaine can help you fin the right major for you.
Stephanie
While this school can be very fun, it is what you make of it. If you sit in your room all day you will not make many friends, or do very well in class. Get out there, get involved, and make friends with mutual classmates.
Nicholas from Gray, ME
Get involved right away, with as much as you can. Smile. Meet people. You'll enjoy college so much more if you're a part of something on campus. Also, study and do your homework. Grades are a big deal, and don't you forget it. Go to hockey games.
