Student perspectives:

  • Bar Harbor is such a nice town, especially in winter when it is snowy and quiet. I feel at home here and everything is within walking distance. 

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

    - Kaitlyn Rae Clark
  • MDI is such a beautiful place! I often forget how lucky I am to be able to live and go to school here. I am so busy with schoolwork that I don’t get into the park nearly as often as I would like.

    As an education student, I have found the community to be very open to me. Every school I contact to do observation hours or community service hours enthusiastically greets me and welcomes me into their classrooms.
