[While I was] researching schools with strong marine and environmental programs, UNE came up at the top of the list because of its diverse marine curriculum with so many fields to focus on.

My internship helped me apply the knowledge my UNE classes have given me outside of the classroom. I was able to compare my first-hand experience to things I learned in class at UNE.

What’s nice about my environmental classes is that they are so applied. I get a broad understanding of environmental problems but also how to apply them in a business sense.

At other schools, it may be difficult to get into research and fieldwork experience during undergrad, but I was able to find myself in a lab my first semester.

Everyone made me feel involved in the program on a personal level rather than strictly an academic one. Every faculty member cares so much...It fosters a great community.

It’s easy to get access to what you want to do at UNE, if you have an idea, the professors and staff want to work with you.

The ultimate goal of the class was to travel to Kenya to put our classroom learning to use in a hands-on setting. We did just that.

The environmental department is my favorite part of UNE. Everyone I've met has been great to me. It’s cool finding that niche where you are friends with people who you can also work together with.

The Marine Science Center allows students to have hands-on experiences right from the beginning of freshman year...these experiences have given me a head start in preparing for my future.

I value the close-knit environment that the department generates among its students, due in large part to the Green Learning Community.

What I liked about UNE is that its location provided many unique opportunities to study different habitats within a small area, as it lies in a transitional zone for different habitats.

My experiences at UNE directly contributed to my professional development. My current interest in the field of sustainability in higher education was engendered through my efforts ‘greening’ the UNE campus...

By having a core group to explore the environmental topics that we held dear to our hearts, we were constantly participating, comparing, debating and sharing...Each class and each discussion was a new challenge and learning experience.

The things I like most about the environmental studies department at UNE are the professors and the closeness of the department… I was able to do two personalized directed studies because of UNE’s small class sizes

I was exposed to a wide array of information that was helpful in getting a job in my field post-graduation… Being in southern Maine provides great opportunities to get outside and experience the many different habitats of Maine.

The Environmental Science curriculum provided an added dimension of understanding health care as I investigated the complex interactions between our health and the environment.

I love how the program is multifaceted but maintains a core focus and how each instructor has their niche but is willing to go outside of that to help you better understand the realm you’re interested in.
