Abstract/ Summary

UMaine students have returned to campus and are enjoying a fully residential learning experience for the first time since March 2020. In September, UMaine welcomed one of its largest incoming classes ever. These incoming students, and their returning colleagues, have brought the campus back to life.

While campus activity has not returned to a fully pre-pandemic normal, classrooms are full again; live performances have returned to the School of Performing Arts; attendance at athletic events is welcomed; visiting speakers have arrived and brought new perspectives to our students. New one-credit Research Learning Experiences (RLEs) offered to first-and second-year students have given them the chance to learn mapping skills, garden using historical methods, or perform before audiences, among many other options.
