Student perspectives:

  • Life on MDI is simply spectacular. It is quaint and peaceful during the off-season and when the tourists start to come around, it is full of activity! How many colleges have a national park in their back yard?! 

    - Lilyanna Joy Sollberger
  • I can walk out my front door and within minutes be _____ [hiking, skiing, reading, etc.] in a national park. 

    - Ian D. Medeiros
  • The COA community is huge on MDI, giving you a beautiful little bubble to experiment and grow in. It’s also very cold. Thankfully, COA offers many opportunities to get off campus, so you can balance that with “real-world” experience outside.
