Student perspectives:

  • Definitely the scenery, it’s beautiful up here! Living in the city all my life before coming here, I only was at one with nature if I went somewhere else—it’s nice to live amongst it.

  • Mount Desert Island is a unique place. The trees are constantly changing colours, the park demands exploration, the night sky is always bright, and our little campus is in the center of it all. Bar Harbor is a quaint little town with the cutest dogs, the tastiest seafood, and a lovely sense of community.

  • The fall colors are absolutely amazing! Especially from the top of one of Acadia’s peaks!
