Think the things that make knowledge workers – tomorrow’s business talent – want to live and work in Orono.

That’s Orono’s lifestyle.

 Outdoors  Entertainment Continuous Learning
The outdoors is available to everyone the way it should be – free and any time you want.  The Town and University of Maine have an extensive network of interconnecting trails for walking, biking, and skiing.  For trail maps, check the Orono Land Trust and University of Maine . Canoeing and kayaking are available at your front door, on the Stillwater River and on Pushaw Lake, with several launch sites.  The Stillwater sports great small-mouth bass fishing.And Orono is part of the Greater Bangor gateway both to Maine’s North Woods for snowmobiling, hunting, and wildlife watching, and to Downeast Maine, including Acadia National Park just an hour away. Almost any night you will find performances at the University’s Collins Center for the Arts or another venue on campus, or a sporting event at Alfond Arena, Mahaney Diamond or Memorial Gym.  Every season brings a community fair to Orono’s walkable downtown.  Food and drink are served by one of the best clusters of restaurants and pubs in the region. Knowledge workers, from recent graduates to technicians to senior citizens, want to live and work where they can earn an advanced degree, take an additional course, or just tune up their learning.  The University of Maine is here for degrees, but also for continuous learning through its Division of Lifelong Learning ,distance education programs and the Penobscot Valley Senior CollegeEastern Maine Community College, Husson University, and the New England School of Communications  are minutes away in Bangor.
