UMM on the Causeway: Tuesday, July 7

The UMM admissions teams will have a booth on the causeway on Main Street in Machias on Tuesday, July 7, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We’ll answer questions from prospective students, help with application information, and take enrollment deposits from admitted students. The causeway (also known as the Machias Dike) is right in downtown Machias at the Middle River Reservoir.

We’ve temporarily suspended campus visits due to COVID-19, but we’re still finding ways to meet with future UMM Clippers! Our virtual admissions page has all the info.

The best way to find out if UMM is right for you? Come to Machias and see for yourself! We invite you to visit us and experience our campus first-hand. Talk to our students and faculty, spend time in our classrooms, enjoy a lunch or dinner at Kilburn Commons, and go to the beach … even if it’s snowing! Soak up all that UMM has to offer.
