My son is currently trying to figure out where to spend the next four years. One of his choices is UMaine. He has the option of Honors College, which we are a bit hesitant about as he will be a civil engineering major. Any input on the Honors program would be appreciated, especially from any engineering majors.
Also looking for input on the social scene. What do kids do on weekends? Is it a big party school? We’ve heard it is. What is a typical student at UMaine like? Specifically in freshman year, how are the intro classes? Do you feel like your professors know you? Do they do anything to help ensure kids don’t fall through the cracks? Do you feel like there is a lot of academic support available? Any info you can provide about the school/engineering program, pros and cons, would be greatly appreciated!!
