Unity College Description:

Unity College sits on a 225-acre rural campus in the small town of Unity, Maine. Augusta, Freeport, and Rockland are all within an hour's drive. Unity characterizes itself as "America's Environmental College," and the school's interesting curriculum and programs of study show why. Students can major in fields such as Wildlife Biology and Adventure Therapy, and the core curriculum centers on the disciplines that make up Environmental Science. Unity's curriculum is supported by a 12 to 1 student / faculty ratio and an average class size of 18, so students can expect plenty of personal attention.

Students can take advantage of internship opportunities in nearly all states and study-abroad options in 23 countries. While Unity students tend to stay fit and active in the great outdoors, they also compete in several intercollegiate and club sports.
