| If you like the smell of shit come here. It constantly smells disgusting here. To add onto that everyone here acts like they are in high school. This school is so small, everyone knows everyone. There are no opportunities to meet new people here because you always see the same people on campus day after day. The social life here is incredibly dull. When thinking of a college, you think of a mixture of education and a fun social life. Here you don't get any type of a social life unless you are on a sports team. The people are very close minded and arrogant towards other people who they do not know. They are all spoiled who think that they deserve everything. If you want to go to a fun college, save your self the trouble and do not come here. The parking here sucks also. Consider yourself lucky if you can find one without getting a parking ticket. The only things to do on the weekends are sit around and watch movies, go see a movie, or drink in the dorm rooms, which you will definitly get caught. Also, they never turn the heat off in the rooms! This is good in the winter, which sucks, but in the fall and spring you'll be sweating nonstop. The food is HORRIBLE. Disgusting shit. So greasy, no variety, and the same thing every single damn day. The only good food here runs out. Also the dining hall is way too small for eberyone because everyone goes at the same time. The gym is way too small. Shitty equipment you will probably retract tetnis from it if you touch it. Advisors and faculty know absolutly nothing!!!! they will not help you with shit! They will screw you over. DO NOT COME HERE. SAVE YOURSELF! THIS PLACE IS FULL OF SHITTY PEOPLE WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE REAL WORLD!!!!!!!! |

| UNE SUCKS! nothing to do. and we are right on the river so everything smells like shit all the time. crazy roommates. everyone acts like they are still in middle school. food is the same and every one goes at the same times. advisors are not helpful at all. and in order to get into any classes you have to have a biologically based predetermined major. |

| The Biddeford Campus definitely has a range of opinions. This school can be described as horrible or amazing depending on what you consider your major priorities to be.|
If you are a hardworking, academically focused, science major whose primary concern is being accepted into the Portland graduate school, then by all means, welcome. The campus is basically modeled for this type of student. Another pro would be the safety. There is a very low crime rate in the area and almost nothing happens.
However, if you are the partying, non-science major whose looking forward to an awesome social life, then prepared to be disappointed. Unfortunately, the social life/ activity basis is extremely lacking.
Based from my experiences, if you want to have the best of both factors, initiative is key. If you wish to elevate your social life during your stay, then I suggest joining clubs (UniTed if you are looking for cultural diversity) or even making your own club to meet others with similar interests and hobbies. I find it that even though the student body complains about the lack of social life, very few students actually put forth any effort into changing that. All in all, initiative is definitely important in all aspects for an enjoyable college life.
