This school is in the middle of noQuite BrightCivil Engineering
This school is in the middle of no where land, 250 miles
from Boston with limited cell coverage. The place is in a constant state of disrepair and funding is lacking to correct the situation. The out of state cost lowering enticed me to come here and it was a mistake. Transferred to a MA state college after two years in Maine and loving it. I was attacked

by some locals on my way home one night, they will tell you how welcoming the place is but in reality they need the money.

When on this site visit go into the Bangor Walmart and get a look at the hillbillies you will be surrounded by. It is comical Job prospects are limited after graduation as there is no business in Maine that needs a college grad. Also note

some campus police live in the freshman dorms while gettingtheir education and love to play cop with your life.

Question
I love this school but upon mentioning toQuite Bright
I love this school but upon mentioning to a friend from back home that I was suicidal (which I have been for over a decade,) the school freaked out for very little reason because my roommate overheard me saying it and they ended up bullying me into going to the hospital which resulted in me missing a test, two rehearsals and a $3,000 hospital bill which my insurance won't cover. Don't trust them when it comes to mental health, they don't care.

Question
If you want to be involved, student government,Quite BrightCivil Engineering
If you want to be involved, student government, secret societies or greek life is really the way to go, Being in greek life has given me so many opportunities on campus, from everything from being more involved to sports. Also if you are interested in engineering, Its a great program, Civil and Chemical especially, there are really awesome professors who actuly care about their students
