What Students Are Saying

3.25 Average Rating
almost all classes are small, and you're able to speak to your professor if you need assistance. classwork and homework depends on the class/ major, but this is college after all, don't expect it to be a breeze.
Jenae
It's a lot harder than high school was for me, but I think that's only because my high school didn't really challenge students. I am also a nursing major so all my classes are science and math intensive so that makes it harder. But Butch Fenton is a great professor for nursing and makes it all worth while!
Meghan from Wells, ME
Study and applied 100% to all your classes and you will do well. Some classes are easier than others but they still require effort. I enjoy the classes that really pertain to my major and I am challenge with the academic requirements.

Matt
So far I have been challenged deeply.
Jasmine from Gray, ME
Classes are tough, yet professors are fair. They will help you when you ask, and will support you when your trying.
Melinda from Portland, ME
Some professors are easier then others but if you get your work done you will pass the class.
Phoebe from Raymond, ME
Very agressive. Very challenging. The right mix of student radio with teacher.
