Recorded September 28, 2022

Our Discover UNE fall kick-off event features current UNE juniors Alysha and Nick, who discuss how their college search drew them to UNE and ultimately, what made them choose to become a Nor’easter. They share the behind-the-scenes of their journeys, as well as tips on how to get the most out of your college search, including uncommon questions to ask that can make a big difference, connections worth making now, and the actions they took that really helped identify UNE as their best college fit.

Experiential Education

Recorded October 18, 2022

Education doesn’t just happen in the classroom. At UNE, learning takes place in the lab, out in the field, in internships, and through research projects — in Maine and abroad. Current students Al and Jaime chat about what learning is like at UNE and the exciting opportunities that are defining their education and preparing them for a fulfilling career. They also share how they chose their major (and why it’s ok to change it), as well as a few quick tips for your application.


Housing 101: Living On Campus

Recorded November 15, 2022

Roommates. Food. What residence hall should I be in? Where will I study? Can I pick my roommates? There is so much to think about and get ready for when you’re looking ahead to college, and where you live is a huge piece of it! Discover UNE: Housing 101 takes a look at the residence halls available to first-year and transfer students — what amenities are included, floor and hall styles, locations on campus, etc. — as well as a peek at the housing and roommate process. Student Resident Advisors (RAs) lead the conversation and share their campus living experiences.
