What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
Watch out for housing, new dorms are being added but it is still pretty tight. Seniors must live off campus, and sometimes students still are put on waiting lists for housing. If you're a marine biology student, like me, don't count on being able to work at the Marine Science Center because a lot of kids want to work there and there is limited availability.
Megan from Biddeford, ME
If you want to go to a school that is focused on the success of each and every student, UNE is a great place to be. You have to find a school that fits you. If you love the outdoors, the campus is beautiful. It is on the bank of the Saco River where it meets the Atlantic. I fish about 100 yds from my dorm! I would recommend that anyone whose academic interests meet what the school has to offer, come to the school and meet with the helpful and friendly staff and enjoy the sights of the campus.
Evan from Woodstock, CT
Make sure you study no matter what, if you like to party that's fine, just keep your grades up.
Geneva from Palos Heights, IL
Join as many clubs as possible.
Become friends with your professors, more than often the professors are understanding people about any personal issue that may affect your school work but they won't help if they don't know who you are.
Use the Student Academic Success Center as much as possible, they are knowledgeable on most classes you will be taking and can be so helpful, even if you just need to work on study skills.
Sports games are a great place to meet new friends!
Come to campus events, and provide feedback on what you liked/didn't like/ would want for other events. Believe it or not we listen to you.
Definitely talk to someone in your intended major and scope out the campus.
Katherine from New Bedford, MA
Keep informed, ask a lot of questions. Even if you think there isn't enough money to attend keep in contact with the financial office here at UNE. There are always options. The campus and school is very specific, by this I mean you either love it or you hate it. The campus is beautiful and the students are very trusting and welcoming.
Emily from Rockland, ME
Make sure you visit and if possible visit with your department chair. Spending time with someone in your prospective department really gives you a chance to see what's going on and what is expected of you as a student. Also if you are interested in doing research meet with a professor who is working on something you may want to help with.
Anna from Arlington, VA
Ask for more money in your aid packet they will usually try to find it especially if your a strong student.
Amy from Biddeford, ME
Take advantage of all the resources offered to you, they really help!
Kayla from Clifton Park, NY
Don't be afraid to ask for help. College can be intimidating at times, and you don't have to be alone. Try EVERYTHING. The University offers many opportunities to have fun, participate in new activities, and meet people. I recommend that you give everything at least one try. It is unrealistic for you to like everything you participate in. However, if you try everything you will find those few things that are important to you. Most people who are unhappy just haven't tried hard enough.
Sophie from Hamilton, MT
Make sure you get as much help as you can with finding financial aid. The school is willing to help with quite a bit too, so make sure you apply for scholarships from the school.
