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
Coming from a such a large city like Sao Paulo, coming here was a huge change. I absolutely adore MDI and Bar Harbor specifically. The people are very nice and friendly, and I love being able to bike around without fearing about my safety.- Vitoria Bitencourt
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.- Maeghan Warburton
