What Students Are Saying

3.25 Average Rating
Make sure you know which campus your major is housed on. Always keep your eyes peeled for opportunities for involvement that arise unexpectedly. Through keeping myself in the loop, I have been involved with a local shootings of commercials and films, campus scholarships, work study opportunities, and other campus events. Take at least one class from each campus, so as to get a taste of each of them.
Jasmine from Gray, ME
Take a long look at the offered majors. Find three that call out to you then narrow it down to one or two. To often students try to take on to much at school, knowing what you want to do going in will help keep that from happening.
Complete your fasfa on time every year for that is the best way to get the most financial aid for your year.
Get to know your professors and don't be afraid to ask for help
Melinda from Portland, ME
Contact the school and make sure the school offers everything you won't before making your final decision.
Phoebe from Raymond, ME
Visit the campuses without your parents. Sit in classes during the school years, and participate in a weekend event.
Rinette from Belfast, Maine
life on campus is great, the meal plans are a bit over-priced, but in the long run you do save money.
Jenae
Professors are hard but the material is important. They're understanding, especially with sports. (It's an athletic school) Just get your work done and put in the effort and ask for help if you need it. You should be fine, though it's nothing like high school work!
Meghan from Wells, ME
get to know people right when you get to school.
Jessica from Manchester, NH
Get your paperwork done before starting, especially if your going to participate in sports. Get to know who is going to be your coach. Work Study Students apply early for jobs, as student employemnt opportunties go fast.

Study, play sports or belong to some clubs and you will do well.
