- Michele Albion
I knew the University of Maine had a solid history department. I didn't realize just how solid until I was a student. I was alternately awed and challenged all four years. I was always impressed by how my professors — Howard Segal, Jerome Nadelhaft, Alex Grab and Ngo Vin Long — took an interest in me and encouraged me.
- Ryan Genz
London-based fashion company pioneers wearable technology
- Chance Nalley
"UMaine has caring and dedicated professors who make good role models for quality teaching. I was a lost soul that found direction and guidance at UMaine. When I work with student teachers from other schools, including Columbia University’s Teachers College, they do not feel nearly as prepared as I did after being trained at UMaine."
- Judy (Labbee) Pancoast
Singer-songwriter Judy (Labbee) Pancoast, a University Singers alumna who earned a music degree at UMaine in 1983, has been enjoying a prosperous and international musical career, capturing the hearts and ears of thousands of children and adults with her multiple CDs of children's music.

The 2009 Pulitzer Prize winners in explanatory reporting are UMaine alumna Bettina Boxall and Julie Cart of the Los Angeles Times for their five-part series, “Big Burn,” exploring the growth and cost of wildfires.
- Kiel Figgins
"I chose UMaine for a number of reasons. UMaine offered courses similar to the field I was pursuing, mainly in Studio Art and New Media. I always believed this would be a powerful merger, taking the foundations learned from a traditional art training and applying them to new technical mediums and modern situations."
- Matt LeClair
Thanks to Matt LeClair, 25 cents — or 50 cents, in some cases — will buy an original piece of art. But you won’t find the masterpieces hanging in a museum or perched on a pedestal at some hip, downtown gallery. LeClair sells the works in gumball machines.
