HONORS – See LATIN HONORS
The University of Maine offers its Honors College to all exceptionally talented students who are interested in cross- and inter-disciplinary studies. The program is based on the belief that genuine excellence in college- level studies means broad competence in areas outside a major field of specialization as well as excellence within it; to that end, Honors courses involve students and faculty from all disciplines and fields at UMaine in seminars and tutorials. Honors course work allows the student both a range and flexibility not available in any academic major. The double emphasis on learning which both broadens and deepens has been the foundation – for the building of courses in the Program: to expand students’ perspectives by exploring areas of thought not closely related to their major fields, and to allow them to work in their majors, during the junior and senior years, with greater depth than would be possible within a conventional course pattern. Honors study begins with interdisciplinary broadness and culminates in a focused, in-depth project in the major field.
Several national honor societies have chapters at the University of Maine. The Director of the Honors College maintains a list of societies and their faculty advisors.
The University provides on-campus residential housing for single students and family housing at University Park. On campus facilities are staffed with professionals and paraprofessionals who work to create a supportive residence hall atmosphere for resident students. Off-Campus Housing information is available to all students and staff at the University through the Commuter and Non- traditional Students Programs located in the Memorial Union. This office maintains a listing of available living quarters in the Orono, Old Town, Bangor and Veazie area.
