Meet your tour guides

Our USM Ambassadors will be your tour guides. Like our student body, these student ambassadors range from energetic first-year students to accomplished graduating seniors; from transfer students to working adults. These students bring with them their own unique stories, experiences, and skills to help you find yourself here. Learn more.

We are offering Simulation Lab tours for students considering our nursing program. The tours will be conducted by a member of the School of Nursing on our Portland campus.
