Things to do at UNE in the fall:

1. Apple Picking

Get a group of friends together and head on out to the orchards. Go quickly, because apple season is wrapping up!


Places to go:

  • McDougal Orchard  (Hanson’s Ridge Springvale) is a half hour away
  • Gile’s Family Farm (139 Waterboro Rd in Alfred)


2. Corn Maze

Are you up for the challenge??? Check out Pumpkin Valley Farm Corn Maze on Union Falls Road in Dayton only 15 minutes from campus.

They also offer Pick Your Own Pumpkins, an animal barnyard, and a corn launcher. Prices are very affordable – under $10 per person.


3. Shopping

Want to do some early Christmas shopping?? Head to Kittery, Kennebunk, or Freeport for affordable shopping and a small coastal town vibe with beautiful scenery.


4. On campus Activities

Don’t want to leave campus?? Check out all the fun activities that are put on by the Outdoor Reaction department.  Like hiking, sailing, and kayaking.  Check out the latest issue of the Breeze (Found on tables in Decary, the Hang, and Winward) to find out when trips are and how to sign up.


5. Get a flu shot

In such close quarters it is very easy for germs to spread and for people to get sick.  Protect yourself by going to the University’s Health Center to get a FREE influenza vaccine; all you need is your insurance card.
