COA students tend to have eclectic interests—and lots of them. In our small and active student body there are always events and activities, whether it’s a potluck supper, cribbage tournament, dance party, or a gathering to discuss important issues on campus or around the world.

Students also form clubs and organizations based on their interests, ranging from soccer to gender identity, midwifery, literary publications, and global environmental politics.  If you’re interested in something, chances are you’ll find other people who want to join in too.

Throughout the term there are lots of organized activities both on-campus and in town, including lectures, concerts, film screenings, yoga classes, kayak or sailing lessons, trail runs and other sports and fitness activities, and outing club expeditions around Acadia and other parts of Maine. Check out the calendar for events happening now.

But wait, there’s more!
