Student perspectives:

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

  • 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.

  • Mount Desert Island is the most 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 the friendliest people.
