M-Project Guides

The M-Project is an exciting and interactive program that matches new students with experienced students to guide them through their first year on the UMaine campus. The project goal is to ease the transition for new students by providing a reliable and friendly source of answers and first-hand information about the social and academic aspects of university life.

You don’t have to learn the hard way. Get an M-Project Guide and get the inside information on shortcuts around campus, when and where to find parking, and so much more. Our current M-Project Guides include a 3rd year journalism major who commutes to school, several students with children, and a music major.

NEW STUDENTS :    To request   an M project Guide for Fall 2013    Please fill out the form below . For more information contact  Barbara Smith via e-mail on FirstClass at
