Alumni Weekend 2019

Friday, October 9 through Monday, October 12, 2020

College of the Atlantic’s Alumni Weekend takes place on Indigenous Peoples’ Day (previously known as Columbus Day) weekend every year. October is a perfect time to be on Mount Desert Island. The foliage is gorgeous, campus is in full swing, and Bar Harbor has quieted down from the summer tourist season (okay, not really). Whether it is your first visit back, or you’ve been here many times, we look forward to seeing you.

Click here to see the full schedule, though keep in mind that more may be added! Register here for the weekend activities!

Book your accommodations early! In addition to local hotels , some of which may offer a discount, you also have these options:

  • Some tenting spaces are available. 
  • There may be opportunities to stay with a fellow alumna/alumnus or former faculty who live locally and have offered a space in their homes. Check back for more details!

If you are interested in one or more of these options, please contact Jen Hughes  for more information.

Sign up for the COA Alumni Network  where all events will be displayed when the schedule is finalized. This is where you will see who has RSVP-ed to attend events at Alumni Weekend. Be sure to join  if you haven’t already so you can be “in-the-know”!
