ORONO, Maine — With the help of Maine Hello, University of Maine students filled their freshman dorm rooms with televisions, small refrigerators, new blankets and other home necessities to prepare for living on campus during the 2014-15 school year. Campus streets were crowded with new students and their parents rolling plastic storage drawers and several people carrying large moving bins on their heads. Classes begin Tuesday, Sept. 2 for about 2,000 freshman students.
