Student perspectives:

  • Mount Desert Island has become one big field site for me. I have studied the rocks on the island, the streams and waters, the history of indigenous people, the flora, the fauna, the ruins, the history of Acadia National Park, and wherever I go I can draw connections to classes, conversations, and continuously add to my understanding of this beautiful place.

  • Coming from a such a large city like Sao Paulo, coming here was a huge change. I absolutely adore MDI and Bar Harbor specifically. The people are very nice and friendly, and I love being able to bike around without fearing about my safety. 

    - Vitoria Bitencourt
  • i love how the island changes seasonally – how the masses leave when the cold creeps in & envelops the island whole leaving only the hardy souls to bear the manic melting, freezing, & thawing
