A steadfast and longstanding commitment to the environment makes the College of the Atlantic beautiful in more than one way. Maine's dramatic coast demarks the acreage here which includes a farmland, forest and orchards. The earth-friendly school takes its commitment to the planet seriously. All the paper used at this college is 100% recycled. Even the paint on the residence walls is low-VOC.
