An important part of the college experience that new students often overlook is getting involved on campus. Joining a team, group, or club is a great way to meet people and make new friends at USM. Being part of a community provides a great support system and helps connect you to the faculty and staff here. You’ll develop tons of skills that you can use throughout life (not to mention a great addition to your resume or grad school application!)
Think you don’t have time to get involved? Studies have shown that students who participate in co-curricular activities are actually more successful with time management and academic performance.
There’s something for everyone here at USM, so stop by one of our Student Involvement and Activities Centers to help get connected with the perfect involvement opportunities for you. Our offices are located in the Woodbury Campus Center in Portland and in the Lower Level of the Brooks Student Center in Gorham.
Welcome to USM!
Assistant Dean of Students for Student Involvement & Activities
