Coming from Massachusetts, one might automatically feel like an outsider. However, when I joined the UNE team I was welcomed immediately. UNE is a small community in its own right, with qualities resembling a best friend intertwined with family. The classes and campus are a perfect size in order to learn and socialize throughout your college experience. UNE offers unlimited options and endless support, it would be impossible for a student to feel lost, unrepresented, or insignificant. You’ll see that UNE needs each and every one of its students to be complete and we appreciate all of those who have joined us.

Growing up in Southern Maine I thought I knew everything the area had to offer, but being here at the University of New England has shown me how much more there really is. The opportunity the students have to travel abroad, participate in student run events and groups, and work directly with their professors is what makes us UNE. Having come from a small private institution I know just what a difference the student-to-professor relationship can mean for our graduates. I'm so excited to meet you all on the road and to be a guide for you on your way to college.

As a recent graduate from UNE with my hometown in Colorado, I have a wide variety of experiences that led me to where I am today. During my first visit to UNE I knew right away that this was the place I wanted to be. There is a friendly atmosphere, strong academics, and you couldn’t ask for a better location! Being a relatively small school, UNE has an environment where everyone can fit in and feel at home. Not once did I ever feel bored or out of place as a student. The faculty and staff are also extremely supportive and willing to help students whatever the situation may be. It is important to find a college that fits you; UNE was no doubt the right place for me.

I grew up in southern Connecticut and I would have never imagined moving up to Maine, but here I am now, immersed in the culture that UNE has to offer. As a recent graduate of Western New England College (now University), I appreciate the comparative size and atmosphere here at UNE. With over 1400 students living on campus, you'll find the vibrant campus make for a perfect home away from home. It doesn't hurt to be only a short walk away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the country! I hope your transition to college is as smooth as possible, so please come to Biddeford and visit with us!

Having lived all over the east coast I can honestly say there is no place quite like Maine with all it has to offer. Beaches, rivers, lakes, mountains, parks, cities, arts, music, cuisine; the list could go on and on. At UNE all these options are at your fingertips. With a great faculty to student ratio, a wide variety of majors and class offerings, and incredible array of clubs and activities, boredom is about the only thing we don't offer here. Check out our web site to learn more or better yet, come visit us in person.
