What the counselors say…

“Having visited many wonderful college campuses, I must say I was most impressed by the uniqueness of yours. Your gorgeous campus, interdisciplinary curriculum, and passionate faculty make your school stand out in my mind.”

“Every time I thought it couldn’t get better, it would! The Getaway covered all the important elements of the college: community, focus on compassion, and concern for the world and environment.”

“I enjoyed getting to know COA in a very special way, experiencing the personality of the place and meeting great people.  The reception, the trip to the sandbar to find critters, the wonderfully tasty and healthy food in the dining hall, the lovely campus tour, the working farms, the beautiful architecture, and warm atmosphere were all great.”
