The University Of Maine Probably Should Have Used Spell Check Before Handing Out This Degree
College isn’t easy. For many high school graduates, a chance to head to a 4-year university represents the first real challenge of adulthood.

Unless of course you’re the young lady who gets this handed to you after your 4 years of hard work. Who knows, maybe with her degree in journalism, she can become an editor. Is UMaine hiring?
