Student perspectives:

  • Living in and around a national park is nothing short of stunning. With the hills spotted with pink granite and the streams teeming with brook trout, what more could one desire?

  • Biking to get my groceries, studying by the ocean, walking the carriage roads in autumn. There is so much beauty here.

  • The hidden spots, and spots I have yet to discover, but so far, trying apples from trees all over the island, walking in different harbors, exploring the islands off of MDI (talk to Toby!), identifying flowers and eating edible plants I have never seen before, jamming on the community piano in the Village Green in Bar Harbor, and watching waves crash on the rocks of Acadia have been my recent passions.
