Tuition is not overly expensive in comparison to some larger schools, but a good way to get scholarships if you do not qualify for financial aid is to keep a good GPA. Sometimes professors will need work-study students, and if you are lucky, you can talk to financial aid and receive work-study hours.

With a small school, there is always a way to be a part of the campus community in some way. This opens a range of opportunity for community service and campus leadership. Our school also promotes a very hands-on learning style, which can require getting experience outside of campus borders. I have made many good personal connections with people inside and outside of the college community.
Small and close-knit is one of the qualities which makes my school unique. I have not been to any other school in which students address professors on a first-name basis; professors put so much effort into helping students professionally and academically, creating a humble environment for students to grow.

Since my college's town is around 1,000 people with about half of them college students, the nice thing about off campus housing is that (generally) landlords and community members are close-knit and supportive. Off-campus housing is not hard to find, especially if you know an upper-classman who is graduating. Unfortunately, it is in most cases necessary to have a car, as off-campus housing can range from 10-20 minutes away from the school.

On campus, on of the meal plan options is 19 meals a week with college dollars that can be spent at local restaurants in town. At the cafeteria, there is a salad bar, a sandwich station, a pasta station, a stir-fry station and the counter with main entrees. Our school tries to get food locally as much as possible, for example using food grown on campus, getting burgers from local farms and having locally sourced milk available.

Guys & Girls:
There's a bit of a mix of people here. This school is dubbed as a "hippy" school but there's a little bit of everyone.

I was able to get into my program without any issues. However, I came in as a "transfer" student, so I already had a lot of the required classes needed for this program.

I think the registration process could be better. Many students end up staying an extra semester and/or year because they dropped classes because not enough people were enrolled. That isn't fair to the student who is intending on graduating by a certain year and also is a bit of false advertisement when the college says you're guaranteed to be done in 4 years.

The wildlife biology program here is relatively hands on. The professors know a lot and try to share their knowledge. However, the internship process, I found, was a bit of a nuisance. I went back to school to get my second bachelors and already had a lot of experiences in the field, but was still required to complete this internship.

Health & Safety:
There is a school health center and a town pharmacy but that is all. Closest hospital is and 30 minute drive.

Unless its a break there isn't really any transportation available to bus stops and things.

Town is quiet and close to the school. Gives a good feeling of community.

The academic programs at Unity are very good. The professors are very helpful. The financial aid office has been helpful with the money process.

I do have my own labtop, so that makes all work convenient. The WiFi is high speed, so that helps as well. The library and labs are good to work in.

Unity has typical Maine weather. There is plenty to do outside in the winter and even more to do outside in the summer.
College Sophomore 2013-04-29T23:31:11Z
I am eager to work in the wildlife enviroment. I look forward to working in the outdoors. Being outside is what I like to do, going fishing, kayaking, swimming, ATVing, and snowmobiling.

There are only two restaurants within a ten mile radius of the school. Both of which are pizza joints. There is not much variety, but they do have student discounts.

This is the number one college for marine biology in the nation, so this tells me that I am getting the very best education for my money. My major is full of hands-on experiences and options to study almost anywhere in the world. The marine biology major is full of many lenghty research papers which are my least favorite thing to do, but I know it is critical for my understanding of marine biology.
College Sophomore 2013-01-28T15:38:19Z
This college is the number one college in the United States when it comes to outdoor education. Since Marine Biology is my major, I knew that this college would get me on the right track to becoming a marine biologist and getting my Doctorate's degree on the subject. The professors are very down-to-earth and very helpful. The workload is not overbearing but there is a good amount of classwork and homework that comes with each class. We have the option to use a tutor when studying to help us with a subject, which is very nice when you need a little grade boost in a class. Overall, Unity College is a great tight-knit community that strives to become a completely self-sustainable college and create great opportunities for all students along the way.

There is security in our school and you have a secure parking place in the student parking lot there is a fee you have to pay but its worth it.

You barely see drug use in Bronx Community College, i would say that it is a safe environment besides i believe that it all depends on who you hang out with , in all cases it doesn't matter if you are in the are where drug is used big time what it matters is that you know your values and morals, and whats right from wrong.

I am somewhat happy with the program I just thought it would be more hands on
College Junior 2012-11-21T16:55:03Z
It is difficult to get an internship for our majors and you have to pay the school in order to receive credit for graduation

There aren't really many races on Unity College Campus. As far as religion most are either, atheist or catholic. and most students are heterosexual.

We only have one restaurant near by off campus and it gets old.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
