  1. I love seeing these updates! Great article! As a student at USM-LAC though I find that links to any resources are incredibly limited. This is my first year on campus and I only found one page listing direction and a single photo. Also, their Facebook page has been inactive for an entire year and all their other social media accounts have been deactivated (you can tell they have been erased when you go to click on the links provided). I also read an article in the Press Herald saying enrollment was down and would hate to see campus closed. Social media is a huge part of bringing on new students in our generation. It’s been really concerning me that no one has fixed it since I brought it to their attention so I thought I would let the university paper know. Thanks for listening friends!

    • Thank you for your feedback and for voicing your concerns. LAC is an important part of USM and definitely should not be overlooked. We will link more resources available to students at LAC in the coming days. Stay tuned!
