Weekly field trips are not the only activities available when you are a student at IEI. Many other other student groups on campus also host activities and events. The International Students’s association offers events such as:

  •  Culture fest in the fall
  • International Dance festival in the spring
  • Shopping, skiing and sight-seeing trips

Here are just a few of the many things to do in Maine.


In The Fall

Do you want to go hiking? Do you want to experience a real halloween party? How about cooking your own dish and sharing with us at our own potluck  parties? All of these activities are happening during the fall semester.

Things to do:

  • Shopping Trips
  • Halloween Party
  • Mountain and Forest Hiking Trips
  • Potluck Party – share your own dish with other students.


Winter in Maine is a long time of snow and hot chocolate. Experiment with new things and try the winter outdoor activities Maine has to offer. Go snowboarding and skiing nearby Hermon Mountain or try Sugarloaf, a top ski destination. Have a blast going tubing with friends, ice skating, or just making the classic snowmen, snowball wars and angels in the white snow.


Things to do:

  • Shopping Trips
  • Skiing
  • Snowboarding
  • Ice Skating
  • Tubing


Spring and Summer

When the weather warms up it is time to go canoeing or kayaking. Just staying outside tossing a frisbee with friends is fun. There is always a trip to Acadia. Maine day is a big university barbeque at the end of the year and Oozeball is the main attraction.

Things to do:

  • Kayaking
  • Canoeing
