University College move on schedule (Times Record)

Plans to move University of Maine at Augusta’s University College from Bath to space owned by Southern Maine Community College’s at Brunswick Landing this summer are on track. That is despite the fact that SMCC’s plans to move academic facilities out of Orion Hall to make way for student housing have been delayed.

Buddy to Buddy: The Pink Glove Dance (WCSH-TV)

For the next several months faculty, staff and students will put together a video, with the help of staff and patients at the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care. It's going to be a lot of work... but it's being spearheaded by a long-time UMA employee who was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago, and is determined to spread the word about the importance of early detection.
