I chose UMFK because it was in my hometown and provided me with the education that I needed to be successful in my career at an extremely affordable price. I have worked in retail, insurance, and banking, and I would not have been as comfortable in those fields without the training and education that I received.
While a student, I was able to work off campus while a full-time student and earned enough to pay for my entire tuition and books. I also applied for and received many scholarships, which helped in the payment and allowed me to leave UMFK without any student debt whatsoever.
I still reside and work in Fort Kent. I am a Commercial Loan Officer for Acadia Federal Credit Union, working with Commercial Members from Allagash all the way to Bangor.
