At Farmington, you’ll get involved in whatever student club or organization matches your interests. And we have loads to choose from. And if you don’t see the particular student organization you’re interested in, then do what lots of UMF students have done — take the bull by the horns and create your own club! In fact, that’s how most of our student organizations came to be.

We’ve got 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-operated radio station and more.

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.
