    Large state university. Medium level of international students and diversity. Diverse faculty. Interesting courses to study. Pretty New England locations and decent sized campuses.

    4 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Social Work, Class of 2008

    Diverse - blend of traditional and non tradition learners

    5 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Criminology and Sociology, Class of 1998

    A lot of older, commuting students mixed with traditional students. Not a lot of guidance.

3.8 Based on 5 Reviews

    Masters in Teaching and Learning, Class of 2012

    Classrooms are small, dining halls offer a nice variety, the dorms are mostly on the Gorham Campus, so students have to be bused in for classes in Portland.

    4 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Criminology and Political Science, Class of 2006

    Things have likely changed a bit since 2006. Libraries, computer labs and dining halls were adequate when I was there.

    4 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Psychology, Class of 1981

    computer lab is being rebuilt, some dorms are old and some are new, classrooms are old and need repair, dining hall needs to be updated

    3 Rated January 2016

    Typical for a state university. Nothing special but cozy.

3.4 Based on 5 Reviews
  • Alumni
    Masters in Teaching and Learning, Class of 2012

    I would not know, never approached about getting involved in groups or activities

    2 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Social Work, Class of 2008

    I was not involved in dorm / outside activities as a non-traditional student but know they are great.

    4 Rated January 2016
  • Alumni
    Criminology and Sociology, Class of 1998

    No idea. Did a lot of extra curricular activities in high school but had to work as well as earn double major so no time in college.
