USM President Glen Cummings joined host Duke Harrington on WMPG’s Norumbega News on Thursday December 8th. President Cummings makes some bold statements like “USM is the most important university in the world because it is only through schools like USM—schools whose mission is access, who educate first generation students, asylum-seekers, recent immigrants, and adults returning to school.

Wow – Thanks to everyone who made the 21st Annual Record Sale a huge success! The weather was perfect, the set-up and clean-up was the fastest ever. After deducting expenses, donations to WMPG from this event are $11,394. This is the most ever from the annual record sale. Thanks to everyone who donated records and CDs or helped work the event. It couldn’t have happened without all your help. The Friday night load-in was amazing! We had more than 30 people here and had the truck loaded in under an hour. Smoothest load-in ever! The clean-up was done in two hours! The sale was very well attended with 529 people paying to get in.
