Imagine life outside the classroom when you live in such an ideal location like Monterey, California. International Environmental Policy student Mairi Miller gives a 60 second snapshot of her experience at MIIS when she's not doing schoolwork. She's a kayaker, hiker, and climber and her only problem is deciding which one she wants to do on a given day. "There are so many amazing things to see and do here," she says. "I kind of get overwhelmed by all the fun stuff."
