Life on Mount Desert Island:

I love the walks around the island and I often collect stones.

Activities, traditions, celebrations:

I love the summer on this island. Potlucks and hikes.

COA might be the right college for you if...

you are up for an adventure and you never lived close to the ocean. 

Ephemera:

I love going for walks by the ocean and get lost observing rocks.
