Press Herald Interviews Student for Report on College Costs

Joshuah Salkind, a first-year student at the University of Maine, spoke with the Portland Press Herald for an article about the cost of attending public universities. Salkind, who was senior class president and valedictorian at Easton Junior-Senior High School in Aroostook County, said he decided to attend UMaine because he liked its size and that it wasn’t too far from home. “I like a larger environment just in terms of the opportunities,” he said.
