As a student at the University of New England's seaside campus in Biddeford and our suburban campus in the coastal city of Portland, you are given opportunities to thrive, not only while at UNE but beyond.
Again and again, industry experts have cited the "value" and "return-on-investment" of a UNE degree. Forbes included us on its list of "America's Top Colleges for 2013." U.S. News & World Report ranked us among the "Best Universities in the North" in its 2014 edition of “America's Best Colleges." And Affordable Colleges Online ranked us second in return-on-investment among 43 colleges and universities in Maine.
When you decide to attend UNE, you become a valued member of the close-knit UNE Community where people know your name. From your first days on campus through the day you graduate, and continuing into your graduate studies or career, your professors and classmates play an important role in your life. They encourage you to think in complex and ambitious ways about the work being done in your field. They challenge you to be more than merely competent, but to be exceptional.
At UNE, you enjoy an active life beyond the classroom too. You learn and grow in important ways through your involvement in undergraduate research, internships and clinical rotations, international travel through our Global Education Program, and community service through our Citizenship Seminar and service learning programs.
You also find more than 60 student clubs to join, and a championship athletics program that brings together students, alumni, faculty and staff to cheer for the Nor'easters.
