List of the Smallest Colleges in Maine

Smaller colleges are great for those who enjoy tighter communities. You may pass the same people on a very regular basis, which can lead to life-long friendships and connections. You may also appreciate smaller class sizes and better accessibility to professors who can devote more time to your questions and needs. Smaller colleges can often specialize in certain fields, offering some of the best courses to take within that field of study.
