Student perspectives:

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

    - Ian D. Medeiros
  • The landscape is so different from where I grew up, just a two hour drive away. I enjoy being on an island that feels so far removed from the rest of the world, surrounded by people who come from everywhere. For me the island feels like it’s in its own time zone, year, and far, far away. There’s a strong sense of community on campus that extends into the MDI community. Living here is a uniquely shared experience.

  • 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?!
