Welcome to The University of Maine and Student Life.

Dr. Robert DanaOur staff is dedicated to helping students adjust to college life, get the most out of their college experience, and partner to make our university community a better place for all its members to live, study and work.

We all have a part in determining whether each of us can achieve personal and academic success. Your participation in the remarkably broad range of programs and activities Student Life offers can make a huge difference in the lives of the general student community. UMaine is justifiably proud of the role students play in the life of the institution, and I hope you will become an active part of this Black Bear tradition.

Let me conclude by offering a special welcome to our newest students. All of us in Student Life hope your time at UMaine is filled with challenge, satisfaction, and SUCCESS. We all look forward, as well, to new partnerships with you!
