The fall colors are amazing!!! Especially from the top of one of Acadia’s peaks!- Kaitlyn Rae Clark
The community is very rich and very sweet. I come from the Southern parts of the United States, so I am very used to quaint, southern comfort and I have found the same kindness here on the island. When I first came to COA, I wasn’t involved too much in the community, but as I have found myself within the COA community, I have been able to reach out to the greater MDI community. A Climate to Thrive has been a great initiative by wonderful people on the island that would like to see more sustainability within areas such as transport, energy, and food. These initiative involves all walks of life on the island, and has been an incredible space to bounce ideas and skills off of each other.- Jenna Farineau
The COA community is huge on MDI, giving you a beautiful little bubble to experiment and grow in. It’s also very cold. Thankfully, COA offers many opportunities to get off campus, so you can balance that with “real-world” experience outside.- Rebecca Riane Haydu
