Student perspectives:

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

    - Kaitlyn Rae Clark
  • The coast is beautiful and every site is picture perfect. The community not only within COA but also within the community of Bar Harbor is very inclusive and welcoming. Living here has showed me the importance of community and sustainability.

  • 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.
