Re-Fridge at the University of Southern Maine


With campuses in Portland, Gorham, and Lewiston, USM is a major engine in research, development, and overall growth in economic, civic, and cultural life in southern Maine. The school traces its origins to 1878 with the evolution of Gorham Academy into the Gorham Normal School, an institution of higher learning. In 1970, the Gorham State College, as it was then called, merged with the University of Maine at Portland. The largest college in southern Maine, USM has a student body totaling around 8,500.
