- Dylan Watt
New Media Graduate 'Amazed' at New Technology Opportunities
- Beth Logan
Life gets off to a rough start for babies born to drug-dependent women, even when their mothers’ addiction is clinically managed during pregnancy with methadone or other therapeutic replacement drugs. Born with their own chemical dependency, approximately 70 percent of these babies spend weeks in intensive care being treated for a cluster of unpleasant and dangerous symptoms of opiate withdrawal known collectively as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, or NAS.
- Stephanie Littlehale
Stephanie Littlehale, an international affairs major with a minor in legal studies, will graduate in May 2012 with a GPA of at least 3.8, an admirable accomplishment for any student, but even more remarkable considering some of the challenges this first-generation college student has overcome since high school.
- Glenn Swanson
Glenn Swanson, a studio art major from York, Maine, spent this summer on campus participating in a class taught by UMaine sculpture professor Greg Ondo.
- Maja Bedak
International Affairs major with a concentration in political science and minors in economics and anthropology.

I've been working at AEWC since June now. For the first month, I was working in the lab doing chemical inventory. Then I was offered a position with the education and outreach team, doing some flash animation and graphic design work for the DeepCwind Consortium.
- Nathaniel Wildes
With political science, I’m learning how to best create, communicate and make political ideas, whether it be law, convincing people to vote for you, to make legislation real, or to make it more effective.
- Christina Pappas
Christina Pappas’ long-held interests in art and science left her undecided about what academic major to pursue in college. But at the University of Maine, she found a way to study both.
- Jessica Fales
As an undergraduate, Jessica Fales of Winslow, Maine, briefly attended Hamilton College, intending to major in English and, ultimately, teach. But when she took an Introduction to Psychology course, she developed a keen interest in abnormal psychology. She realized that the best place for her to further develop this passion was at the University of Maine.
- Molly Hoyt
When Molly Hoyt headed to college, she wasn’t sure what major to pursue. She only knew that she wanted an experience that was different — and that would make a difference.
