President Arthur Hauck, who established Maine Day in 1935, said that a successful Maine Day accomplishes three things:

  • The Campus, through work projects, becomes a more attractive place.
  • We foster the spirit of friendliness and cooperation which we like to identify as the Maine spirit.
  • We strengthen our loyalty to one another and to the University.

Maine Day of Giving is an annual event that keeps the spirit of Maine Day alive whether you are on campus for Maine Day or celebrating from afar.
