not a bad community some shopping available but only a few stores that specializein non food items.. lots of resturants but most are kind of pricey. the college itself offers a wide variety of programs, a student lounge and helpful staff. cost is relatively low. always activities going onaroundcampusandoff campus.

Many of the dorms could do with some restoration and or updating. Also it does not make sense to me that Park hall has handicap shower on every floor, but there is no elevator for people who are handicap. Also in Merriman Hall there is an elevator, but no handicap showers.

So far I can't really complain about the course load and what not. So far I believe that obtaining a degree through UMPI is a Breeze as long as you put forth the effort.

The teachers are there to help you. Not only are they your professor, but they are also there to utilize as editors and as advisers. Even though you are assigned an adviser for your degree any teacher on campus that you feel you need to talk to is usually available.

Besides Taxis the transportation either consist of having two feet and a heart beat. The other means of transportation besides taxis would also be owning a car.

Although he Recreation program just got cut they are now offering a Business Administration in Recreation. Which is a great degree fr myself, because I am looking to be a Park Ranger of some sort, or to own my own guiding services company.

They have plenty of options for students to chose from.

Presque Isle is a smallish town, but it is jammed packed in the town center. There are many different locally owned business. There is also any place to go out into nature and just explore.

UMPI recently implemented a tobacco free campus. Many students partake in smoking weed, but no one ever notices, because they are pretty crafty and not stupid enough to get caught. Also drinking is a huge hing on this campus.

We have many foreign students, and we have many students from out of state. We support anyone's sexual orientation and religious background.

We did just get all the computers in one lab replaced with brand new Apple desktops. It is pretty cool because you can either log into windows or you can log in to the mac settings. Also there is no 24 hr labs which really sucked because there was a time when my laptop was broken and i need to write papers after I get done work at night. The interent connection itself is a bit iffy. Although yes it works most of the time sometimes it takes ages to load pages from the computer lab computers.

Health & Safety:
To be honest the only time I have ever seen campus security is when they re writing tickets. Then again I feel really saw here anyways with out the campus police patrolling the grounds all the time.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:41:14Z
It is always a bit col here, but it is worth it in the views alone. It just snowed today actually and it is only October 28th. It does rain a lot as well here.
College Sophomore 2013-10-29T02:40:13Z
Not really that many options in northern Maine. there are a few bars, but nothing that screams hey lets party!!!

UMPI has excellent athletic teams. We even have a girl that is from California who plays on our means varsity baseball team. She is one of the best players on the team. The fact that the guys are accepting and non judgmental about this makes the athletics that much better. Our sports team members are well rounded individuals with a sense of where they are heading in life. I personally just started living on campus this year and so far I have not heard a thing about intramural sports.

Guys & Girls:
I personally do not even see why this section is in this survey. Who cares what the other students look like. I mean does a student really enroll in a college based on what the students look like. When I enrolled here it was because I wanted to obtain a degree and better my future. If I must rate them then i would say that the girls here are an interesting mix. The guys are as well. It is basically your average mix of young adult. Were you have a percentage that is good looking and well dressed, and then you have your nerdy people with no sense of fashion. Although I should mention that like any place in the world there are some people who are just weirdos and or have mental issues, but they are going to college to break down the barriers they face with their challenges.

University at Maine in Presque Isle is an interesting school. It is a very accepting and honest community. I enjoy the fact that the buildings are well kept and the gym is spectacular. The library itself is a great place as well. with three floors for references and plenty of study areas to accommodate the students studying atmosphere. One building that is in need of some renovations is Weiden Hall, which is the center for the arts and where the athletics department is held. The theater with in the hall needs to be updated badly. the seats are worn and some many are broken.

There are a large number of computers on campus, and we also have a really nice Mac lab. Printing is very easy. The wireless works great pretty much anywhere on campus. It's nice to have your own computer because the labs and library close at 10 pm, but there is no need to bring a printer.

I have been an athlete for 4 years and also involved in the Athletic Training program. A lot of the students at UMPI are athletes, and fitness is a big part of the student body's priorities. Team performance is so-so. UMPI is a small D3 school, so sometimes the emphasis is more on participation than performance. At the same time, this can allow someone to try a new sport and get involved. The athletic facilities are great- Gentile Hall is a wonderful resource, the athletic training staff and students are phenomenal, and the campus is surrounded by farm roads and snowmobile trails that are great for long runs. UMPI is also in close proximity to two world-class nordic skiing facilities that are free to ski at any time of the day!

There is a lot of variety in academics; it depends on the program that you are in. In general, the registration process is very easy- it's a small school, so it's pretty easy to get into the classes you want. I have never been wait-listed or not been able to get into a class I wanted because of it being full. However, since it is such a small school, many upper-level classes offer only one section so it can be difficult to make classes in different majors fit in together. The professors are great, and because it's a small school student-professor relationships are fantastic.
College Senior 2013-08-03T01:19:26Z
I am an art major, and all of the professors are fantastic, very knowledgable and excellent artists themselves. They all are very willing to help you make your work better, and share their experiences about being working artists. They are incredibly supportive. The art program in general is excellent- it is small and intimate, which facilitates really good critiques and student-professor relationships.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
