Our journey today finds us on the campus of the University of New England. The history of this college began in 1831 when the Kennebec Association of Universalists founded the Westbrook Seminary on a track on land in Portland. A gift from Zachariah Stevens (for whom Stevens Avenue is named) and Oliver Buckley, it started as a co-educational institution, but in 1925 it became an all female school and took on the name Westbrook Junior College. Confused yet? Lots of my formative years were spent lurking about this campus: trick or treating, ice hockey where these chairs are situated, football on the field hockey field, and much more. College girls were always traipsing by our house on warm spring evenings. It was never easy trying to do my 7th Grade homework for Mrs. Kibler. From 1970-1996, the appellation was shortened to Westbrook College, and to day it's title really is the Westbrook College Campus of the University of New England. No wait! Recently it has be changed again to the the Portland Campus of the University of New England. Whew! Those are lot of changes and words in a college title. No wonder today they just call it UNE.
