Experience USM

If you're interested in visiting us, you may also be interested in attending a curated special experience that complements our general information session and campus tour. Experience USM events give students and their families the opportunity to immerse themselves in an area of study (or two!) of their choosing by getting up close and personal with our programs, community, and culture.
