College of the Atlantic is located between the ocean and the hills of Acadia National Park. It's a beautiful spot to visit during any season. The campus has recently completed state-of-the-art sustainable housing and a creative restoration of an historic building into a similarly sustainable campus center. These are also very popular spots for visitors. But our library is a welcome environment overlooking the ocean, our Blair Dining Hall (aka Take-A-Break) is our meeting spot, our food is delicious, and there's now a little cafe, Sea Urchins Cafe, in the lovely Deering Common Community Center
