What graduates are saying “Looking back at the last five years here at the University of Maine, I can’t help but think about how much I have changed as an individual because of the amazing opportunities and lifelong lessons associated with being a studentathlete. Words cannot express how fortunate and privileged I feel to have been able to represent the University of Maine hockey team and wear its jersey out onto the ice. I will continue to hold close the great memories and extraordinary friendships for the rest of my life.” — Mark Nemec Men’s Ice Hockey “My time here at the University of Maine has truly been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I came to this school never imagining the journey I would have as a student-athlete. Being a part of athletics and academics here at the university has made me who I am today. I will forever be grateful for all of the support I have received from the UMaine faculty, my coach Mark Lech, my family, and most importantly, my lovely teammates. Looking back on my time here I can say I have no regrets; I feel lucky to have been given the opportunity to represent UMaine and I will continue to do so in one way or another for the rest of my life.” — Corey Conner Women’s Track and Field and Cross Country “These past four years as a Black Bear student-athlete have been the best years of my life. The friendships and memories I have made with my teammates and classmates will be cherished forever. It has been an honor to play the sport I love, for the school I love for four amazing years. Once a Black Bear, always a Black Bear — GO BLUE.” — Michael Fransoso Baseball “When I started here four years ago, I could have never anticipated how much of a life-changing experience being a UMaine student-athlete would be. The biggest lesson I have learned from my time here is the value of hard work and dedication, and I have come to learn that those two words epitomize University of Maine athletics. I have had the opportunity to play amongst, meet, and be inspired by some incredible athletes and coaches, and the things I will take away from this place stretch far beyond the classroom. My fondest memories will always be those shared on and off the field with my teammates.” — Madelaine Hill Women’s Soccer
