USM News

A recent feature story in The Forecaster newspaper on Maine's growing Islamic population included interviews with two people from USM: Reza Jalali, a USM coordinator of multicultural student affairs, and Fahmo Ahmed, a Somali student who attends USM's Lewiston-Auburn College.
The Portland Press Herald highlighted rising enrollment numbers at USM in a May 4 story. So far, enrollment for fall 2016 increased by 10 percent and out-of-state students jumped 28 percent, wrote reporter Joe Lawlor.

Longfellow Elementary School fifth-grader Rachel Martin dipped her hand into a net and squealed, "I touched a bug!"

Portrait of Kathryn and Karen Oak
After pursuing a bachelor's degree for more than two decades, Kathryn Oak figured the fuss and frenzy of commencement might overwhelm her. However, when the 48-year-old mom marches into Portland's Cross Insurance Arena on May 14 to receive her diploma, she won't be alone. Her mother, Karen Oak, 71, will be at her side. The pair will be sharing the event, each dressed in their caps and gowns. And they will likely be holding hands.
