UNE has a great sense of community. We are all very friendly and genuinely care about each other. When people ask how you are doing, they are not just expecting ‘good’ as a response – they want to get to know you.

It really feels like a community here. It's not too big of a school, but not too small. Everyone sort of knows everyone, which I really appreciate. Because of the tight-knit community, everyone here cares and looks out for each other.

UNE is very inclusive. Even if you feel left out, if you just take that first step, you have many options …to meet people.

People are always willing to meet up outside of class to go over things. Even though we are a big class, I feel like I’m connected with everyone.

Everyone is really friendly and willing to help out and collaborate. Through my experiences with classes, clubs, intramural sports…it’s all been so open and welcoming. There is a really good air on campus all the time.

The English department at UNE may be small, but that is what I love about it. More than a decade later, I still have relationships with my professors who have become lifelong mentors that I continually turn to for advice and they are always willing to support me.

[The UNE community is] really inclusive. We have an awesome program where we're not ranked, so we're not competitive. We’re all trying to make sure that we are all succeeding.
