Math Science Summer Program - Residence Life

Campus living is an important aspect of student learning at UBMS, from adjusting to living with a roommate from a more rural or urban area of Maine, to learning how to connect with resources on a college campus. College students and graduates are hired as Resident Counselors to live with you. A nurse, hall manager, and a counselor also will work with you to help make your experience more enjoyable and fruitful.

Community Meeting Each day the entire UBMS community meets after lunch to give important announcements and “pats on the back,” which are a way to appreciate what others’ accomplishments at Upward Bound. This is the only time of the day that all areas of the program come together as one community – all students and staff. 

Study Hour From 8:00 to 9:00 pm each night you will have some dedicated time to do homework, listen to music through headphones, take a nap, call family/friends, join a tutoring group (assisted by Academic Staff and Peer Tutors) by signing out with the RC, do laundry (but come right back up to your section), and hang out in your section. You may also sign out to the computer cluster. At this time you will not be able to hang out in the common areas or in the laundry room, go to another section, play music so that others can hear it outside of your room, or generally be loud or disruptive. Save that for later! This is your time to chillax.

Illness & Injury If you become sick while at UBMS, we have a nurse that arrives at the residence hall in the mornings to check-in with any students who may be feeling ill. If you are too sick to attend morning activities, you will stay “at home” in the residence hall, where you can rest for the day. The hall manger will check on you during the day. Don’t worry, if you are well enough to eat, we won’t let you go hungry! You may either go to the meals or have some food brought to you. The nurse’s office has basic medical supplies and medications. If your require specific medications, you can either keep it in your room, or keep it in the nurse’s office. In case of injury or emergency, residence life staff will contact guardians and significant adults as well as emergency protocols as needed.

Meal Time Breakfast and dinners will be eaten at Theta Chi. Chef Cathy Conn has a fantastic menu for the summer. us know if you have any dietary allergies or special food considerations; we will do our best to accommodate you! Students and residential staff will help with meal preparation, service, and clean up. Lunches will be eaten in the dining commons. Students and staff will need a MaineCard to enter the commons. Keep this card in good shape as you will be charged a fee ($15.00) to replace it if returned in an unusable condition or lost.

At UBMS, we believe that health is important, and that a healthful diet is key to a strong body and mind. Therefore, we require that you choose a healthful food selection (see below). Because this part of the program is reimbursed by the National School Lunch Program for part of the cost of the meals eaten, you need to follow USDA MyPlate guidelines (see below) when selecting your food. (The money we are refunded means we can have a much better Summer Program!) Residence Life Staff and Bridge students will monitor food selection at the dining commons to make sure all students are selecting foods that meet the school nutrition requirements. Staff can also help by selecting foods that meet the guidelines that students are required to follow. You are what you eat!

Residence Hall Room & Maine Card Your summer room in the residence hall, like everything else at the University, is public property. They belong to the people of Maine, not to UB or to you, but to everyone. Please respect this property and cause no damage. You are responsible for any damage to University property. If any damage is caused, even accidentally, please report it immediately to a staff member.

Visitors You are welcome to have visitors between 4:30 and 6:00 pm, Monday – Thursday. Guests should be made aware of Upward Bound Math Science rules. You may not have guests in your room, but can entertain them in the main floor lounge or elsewhere on campus. You must sign out in order to leave the Residence Hall. You may not get into a friend’s car or leave campus unless an Exception Form has been signed.

Smoking Policy UBMS has a smoking policy for all participants and staff. Tobacco is an illegal substance for all students under the age of 18. If students or staff distribute tobacco products to students under 18, they will be dismissed from summer program. This policy has been implemented to comply with state

laws and to move towards a healthier environment and outlook for everyone. Students and staff who currently smoke will be given the choice of taking advantage of our support services to quit. The University of Maine is a “Smoke-Free” campus so please remind visitors and parents of this policy and ask them to comply.

Curfew For student/staff safety, the doors to the residence hall will be locked at all times.
