Moving back to Orono

Peterborough, NH

#1 Nov 15, 2013
I can't wait to move back to Orono this summer. I spent my first two years at UMaine but decided to live off campus as I liked the Mall area of Bangor. But to my annoyance Bangor sucks big time! We've had two apartments the last year and a half and both places suck. The people are rude and always do drugs and fight. Then any friends that I know in the area is either living next to a registered sex offender or some alcoholic that parties all night. I can't stand Bangor anymore I really miss Orono. I have a new perspective of what Maine is like now. I'm from out of state originally and have to say I loved my first couple years in Orono. People are nice and I like the big University. I had no idea what I was getting into nor how unsafe it was in Bangor. Now I entirely understand the expression to cross the wrong side of the tracks. My parents came and they were so unhappy with this area that they have offered to pay for my summer rent in Orono rather than have me wait all summer to get back up to UMaine. They love me and want me to be safe. I also feel safer driving in Orono because other drivers in Bangor are bad drivers. Also living in Bangor has been a grade killer and my grades slipped from B+ GPA down to a C- but mostly because it's hard to sleep where all the welfare moochers party all night long. I miss Orono so much and come May of 14 I am so out of here. If I'm going to do grad school I need to live some place with a better class of people than live near these morons anymore. I wish there was some way of keeping people from Bangor out of Orono. A couple students I met my freshman year that were more interested in parties and drugs turned out to be from Bangor. Now I've lived a while in Bangor I can see why they turned out this way. Most their parents seem to be on Section 8 or welfare and do nothing but snort pills and drink all day. Deadbeat parents raising deadbeat kids and sad too because most of them just use their Financial Aid as a free ride to party until they fail out. For the most part I'd have to say however that most the people I met at UMaine have been a higher quality people and not everyone here parties all the time. That is why I feel safer at UMaine Orono than a scum place like Bangor. I highly recommend that if you are a student that you don't move to Bangor unless all you're interested in is being a turd then you'd fit right in a place like that.
