Maine Day Open House

Monday, May 16, 2016

A day dedicated to Maine's high school juniors.

Going "away" for college doesn't have to be about leaving Maine. As our guest for the day, you will discover that everything you're looking for - and much more than you'd expect - is available here in Brunswick.

We hope you'll join us for a day packed with information and inspiration.

Register for Maine Day as a Student or Counselor

Parents accompanying their children do not need to register separately.

Registration closes at noon on Friday, May 13, 2016.

When you arrive on campus, please check in with us in the Coles Tower Lobby, right next to Daggett Lounge and Thorne Hall. A campus map will help you navigate, and information about parking is included at the bottom of this page.
