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.
