Chat with a Husky

One of the best ways to learn more about academics and student life at our University is by chatting with one of our current students, aka Huskies. You can connect with either an undergraduate or graduate student via phone, email, or video chat — whatever works best for you.

This one-on-one chat allows you to learn firsthand about all the University of Southern Maine (USM) has to offer, whether you’ve been admitted, are considering applying, or are just beginning your search.

How to book your chat

Email Julia Gurney, Associate Director of Visits and Events.

In your email, please include:

  • Your first and last name
  • Email address 
  • If you’ve been admitted to USM: Include your USM Student ID number, which can be found in your Admissions packet


We fill requests on a first-come, first-served basis.
