They will use you as a guinea pigJul 11 2015Social Work
They will use you as a guinea pig for their own observational research without your knowledge. Don't go to a private school in the U.S. unless you want a shoddy education and to be scammed by upper middle class jerks who think they are humanitarians but actually revel in their tenure track positions that serve to block current PhD students from their jobs and status. THeir goal is to break you down so you only look to them and think THEY ARE THE GOLD STANDARD when you will need to spend hours directing your own studies in order to be prepared for career or research. The research courses are poorly designed and set up to purposely fail students because their is no way in an on-line course that a student solely referring to material presented will ever get the lesson without a tutor who took the course and got an A. THe have a political agenda and believe graduate education is a cruel necessity for MSW students. They evaluate you on your personality and how good of a person their elitist neo-liberal drunk asses think you are. THIS WOULD NEVER HAPPEN IN A GRADUATE PROGRAM OUTSIDE SOCIAL WORK. They don't care if you are the next brilliant researcher or paradigm shifters. THey don't train researchers, innovators or thinkers. THey want dumb ass automatons who never question their authority even though they are so myopic and narrow-minded that they don't realize they are training their clueless students to only look up to self-important authority figures and always question themselves (even if they are geniuses - especially if they are academically gifted). Even though they are supposedly social workers they don't get that having a PhD and/or MSW doesn't make one qualified to teach social work or prepare out of work and career transitioning individuals who a desperately needed by society to fill vacant social work positions. No, instead there are about a handful of people who will make it their goal to destroy you if you don't fit into their clique/club social political reeducation camp they call a school. evil social scientist and social engineers with no sense of social responsibility or big picture view of where their students fit into the big world picture that doesn't depend on their asses being kissed by students who never question authority and always think they need to look to them for the answers. THey set up their 3 credit courses so you will spend every minute of every day working or thinking about your pointless assignments that aren't preparing you for anything but a big letdown. THEY ARE DOING THIS FOR THE MONEY FOLKS - not you and not the people who desperately need social workers. They shouldn't be in business as a social work program.
The staff was one big ethics shit showJan 16 2015Other
The staff was one big ethics shit show when I was there. I recently ran into a current UNE-OT student on fieldwork and she says it has gotten even worse. Students are scared to speak up since everyone who complains was kicked out for "unprofessional" behavior. I still feel awful about the things I saw happen to people when I went to this school and it has been years! The issues range from HIPPA and FERPA violations to covering up harassment claims. One of the professors is definitely verbally abusive. It's too bad since I really enjoyed my time in the undergraduate program.
The University of New England is a greatOct 06 2013Other
The University of New England is a great school with a great education in all majors. The only thing I do not like about the school is the lack of social events on campus/ I would love to be at a University that had on campus housing in Portland. Also, I would love to see UNE develop some sororities and fraternaties in the future. That's one thing I am disappointed with, that I wasn't able to participate in one during my college career.otherwise, great programs for careers in the medical field!
Excellent small university withOct 06 2013Other
Excellent small university with the ability to work collaboratively with a broad variety of healthcare professions. All faculty are incredibly friendly and caring and helpful.
Crap place of aNov 08 2011Accounting
Crap place of a university, really recommend people look elsewhere! Academics are not interested in teaching, often disappearing mid-term to do their circuits, rules keep changing and stuff are in tests that were not taught.
UNE has definitely given me a run aroundFeb 15 2011Other
UNE has definitely given me a run around. After 10 years there, there is absolutely no loyalty and help when you are dealing with personal life events such as death of a parent or birth of a child. They forgot all about me while I was on clinical and managed to turn it around and seem as if I were the one that was not following through. Faculty members also had their own personal life agendas which made them lose track of me and not follow through on their responsibilities. Even though I was on Deans List and having no problems within my clinical rotations, UNE was able to dismiss me from my program with no mroe then a sorry and good luck with this difficult experience. Almost 200,000 dollars later and I am barely able to make my bill payments. Definitely not worth putting your time and energy into this OT program if you can get into another program that actually shows some loyalty to their students.

in my opinion, this university is one the best universities in USA.
