  • Letter: USM deserves more of the UMaine pie

    Orlando Delogu’s piece about how to improve our UMaine system is spot on. We 1.3 million Mainers, in the age of distance learning, don’t need seven campuses. Moderate tuition increases, for instance 2 percent per year for 10 years, could raise millions in needed revenue. I got my MBA ...
