May 10, 2009 – College of the Atlantic

I had a chance to roam around campus for a while.  It’s in a great location – one side is the ocean and literally across the street is Acadia National Park.

The college concentrates on environmental arts, sciences and design.  Claire would be a great fit for this place.

It’s the first “carbon-neutral” campus.  This is the new wood-pellet fired boiler that heats the campus.

This is the administration building, among other things.  Parts of the campus were formerly a monastery.

Here’s a formal herb garden overlooking the bay.

These are the student dormitories.

The shore right on campus property.

Finally, for Martin, a whale skull!

  1. So great to see these photos! Our daughter attended COA for a year and we visited her a year and a half ago for parents’ weekend. What a spectacular place. We did some of the same hikes as your family! Did you get a chance to go to the student-operated COA farm?
