There’s more to college than taking classes, doing research, working your on-campus job, interning, and doing your homework. There’s this other thing we like to refer to as … FUN. Perhaps you’ve heard of it?

At Farmington, you’ll get involved in whatever student club or organization matches your interests. And we have loads to choose from — more student clubs and organizations than many schools twice our size.

Music clubs, theater clubs, dance clubs and improv comedy clubs; volunteer and community service organizations; student government; social and events programming; religious clubs; political clubs; activist clubs; literary clubs and science clubs; plus a student-run newspaper, student-edited yearbook, student-operated radio station and more.

Here’s a sample of our student organizations. More are added as the year goes on. These were created by students / for students.

And if you don’t see the particular student organization you’re interested in, then do what lots of Farmington students have done — create your own club! In fact, that’s how most of our student organizations came into being.

 Volunteer Opportunities

UMF sponsors a variety of programs throughout the year to benefit the local and global community. Some of our formal volunteer programs include:

The UMF Month of Service: Held the first month of the school year, this is a collaboration between the UMF Center for Student Involvement and our New Student Welcome Week programs. It’s a great way for new students to dive into volunteerism in the local community.

Girls Talk / Teen Voices: This is our award-winning literature-based mentor program partnership between UMF and MSAD #58. You’ll mentor area school girls in a book-club type program.

Maine End Hunger Week: This is a food drive organized by the Campus Residence Council and the UMF community to benefit local food pantries.

Hat, Hearts and Hands: Is a program that gathers warm hats, mittens and school supplies for local elementary schools.
