UMaine is really beautiful..

I'm very happy to choose UMaine one year ago. All the people around me are excellent. When I just come here, I had trouble in speaking English. One of my friend in my office helped me to practice English and to say hello to professor. My advisor is also amazing. He is kindhearted. No matter when I have problem in my research, he will help me to solve it or give me some advices as soon as he can. moreover, UMaine is really beautiful, especially in summer. It's not too hot nor too cold. All the animal in and around the campus live together with people. When people close to them, they didn't escape away. At last, the facility are pretty good. When I need to do some exercises, I can go to the Rec Center, which can provide us to take the exercise. When we need to find somewhere to have a meeting, we can easily find some places. When I want to dance, I can find the dance studio. In all, I love UMaine

Thanks to UMaine for its generous scholarships for International students

As my family was unable to provide the full expense of education in the US, I needed huge Financial Aid. Thanks to UMaine for its generous scholarships for International students. I obtained a scholarship that provided me with the opportunity to obtain an invaluable education in the United States. Another very important concern to me was the quality of education. Along with many other excellent programs, the science and engineering program at UMaine is outstanding, which attracted me. It is truly an unforgettable experience with a world class education. The people at UMaine are very friendly and cooperating. Not for a single day did I feel I was a foreigner from another nation and country. I found many friends and well-wishers here, and now I cannot think of my life for a moment without them. It's also a great pride to be a student at UMaine with great aspirations and dreams for future. I am very happy and proud to be a part of UMaine. All that I experienced at UMaine are as good as a wonderful dream

I am thankful to UMaine

The two major factors for me coming to UMaine were the Honors College and the International Student Tuition Scholarship. My experience at the university however has gone far beyond my expectation. I am no longer that shy Vietnamese boy when I first set steps in the State of Maine. By involving in different organizations on campus, particularly the International Student Association and the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, I have become more confident, experience and outspoken person. I'm aware of my responsibilities and rights. I have developed so much as a person, a student and a leader. I'm thankful for being here today and having the chances to become successful!

I have a real life here at UMaine!

Being in UMaine wasn't exactly a coincidence and I don't know if I can ever find a better place. I have an adviser who is like a real father to me; a group of classmates constantly helping me with academic work and try their best to help me feel comfortable, a ride to super market, an invitation to home for Christmas, a hug when I desperately need one,and SO MANY more. I have a real life here and I feel real excitement, encouragement, love like every human being deserves. Most importantly, UMaine made me understand that my hard work and sincerity can be the best solutions to problems and this will last much longer than YOU expected.

With a successful year and good grades received from all my courses, and I got a chance to work with some professors for a few research projects, which is really helpful to me and my lifelong learning. Thanks to all the people which helped me in the past year, and I will persist on what I am doing right now, and also will try my best to get good grades in the rest of my master studies in the university.

I made the right decision: leaving home and coming to UMaine.

To pursue my career as a graduate student, I came to Maine, United States knowing nobody. In the beginning, it was not easy to meet people and share my culture with them! Now, I have been able to build-up great friendships. I feel so good that I have people around me that I can trust and share a 100% with! I'm proud of myself that I can identify good people, I feel so grown-up, thanks to the fact called "time"! And also, leaving home and whatever I was used to and coming to ME, US made me get to know myself in a way that I would have never been able to if I’d stayed home. Then I should say I made the right decision: leaving home and coming to UMaine.
