Portland Colleges and Universities

Portland is a charming seacoast town with plenty to offer in terms of entertainment and education. Students of Portland colleges and universities can enjoy art galleries, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and incredible local restaurants. Sports fans can root for the New England Patriots, or one of Portland's minor league baseball teams. The local cuisine is an important aspect of Portland life, and cold winters are warmed with clam chowder and lobster rolls.

A range of Portland colleges and universities offer students a choice between focused career training and intensive academic study. In 2006, The Princeton Review ranked the University of Southern Maine among the "Best Schools in the Northeast," citing faculty attention to students and state-of-the-art gym facilities. Other Portland colleges and universities include excellent law schools, art colleges, and business schools.
