As I close out my tenure as President of the University of Maine at Farmington, I reflect on how special this campus community is. I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting with students, faculty, alumni, board members and members of the greater Farmington community to hear what excites them most about UMF, why they think this is such a remarkable place.
As you consider attending the University of Maine at Farmington, I invite you to explore.
Explore different ways of thinking. Explore ways to collaborate with others. Explore academic experiences and topics you may have never considered. Explore new things beyond your ‘normal.’ At Farmington, we pride ourselves on out-of-the-box experiences and interests.
Explore our downtown Farmington neighborhood. Explore our nearby mountain trails, crystal clear rivers and lakes. Attend at least one concert a semester. Take in an art exhibit or student theater production. Catch a varsity or club sport game (Go Beavers!). Better yet, get involved and do those things yourself. Immerse yourself. Grow yourself.
Thank you for your interest in Farmington. I invite you to come visit and explore all we have to offer you. I have a feeling you’ll quickly love it here as much as my family and I have. This is truly a special place.
