New England is known for having one of the highest concentrations of colleges and univeristies in the US. Compared to hustle and bustle of Boston, which draws thousands of students from all over the world, many students prefer to study in the more serene setting of Maine. And it comes as no surpise since the state has many world-class institutions to choose from. While Northern Maine is sparsely populated, students who attend colleges in southern Maine get the benfits of beautiful scenery, small city life in Portland, and easy access to the rest of New England.
