Visit USM

There's no better way for both undergraduate and graduate students to get to know the University of Southern Maine (USM) than by seeing us with your own two eyes. Get a peek into life as a Husky with a walking tour of campus, an information session or open house, or a special event with faculty and current students.

We offer a flexible, supportive, and convenient path to completing your degree. These 60-minute sessions are tailored for adult and transfer undergraduate students with a specific major or concentration in mind and cover everything from admission to getting credit for work/life experience.

USM Ambassadors

Your campus tour guides are current USM students. Our ambassadors range from energetic first-year students to accomplished graduating seniors; from transfer students to working adults. Like our student body, these students each bring unique stories, experiences, and skills to help you find yourself here.
