Liberal arts colleges with a vibe like Eckerd's coastal location?

Hey folks! I've taken a liking to Eckerd's beautiful coastal setting and the emphasis on environmental sciences. I'm just wondering if there are any other liberal arts colleges that share this kind of setting, preferably with strong environmental or marine science programs. It'd be great to add a couple more schools like this to my list!

Hi there! If you're captivated by the coastal charm of Eckerd and its strong programs in environmental sciences, you'll be pleased to know there are more gems out there that might catch your interest. Consider checking out the College of the Atlantic in Maine, which has a stunning ocean backdrop and is known for its environmental focus, particularly through its program in human ecology. Another school to look into is the University of California, Santa Cruz, which despite being a larger institution, offers a picturesque coastal campus with highly regarded marine biology and environmental science programs.

Don't forget to explore Bowdoin College in Maine and the University of North Carolina Wilmington which offer proximity to the coast and solid programs in marine sciences. Adding these options to your list could provide you with a variety of coastal college experiences, along with strong academic programs to match your interests. Best of luck with your college search, and enjoy those breezy, beachside vibes!
