I have built a timber framed canopy and installed solar panels on its roof for one of the college’s farms in the Practicum for Renewable Energy.

I have ratified an UN resolution for the Syrian conflict in Introduction to Global Politcs.

I have attended the UNFCCC Conference of Parties in Paris as part of Practicing Climate Politics.

I have analyzed the performance of the college’s solar panels in Maths and Physics for Sustainable Energy.

I have developed a project to make Ellsworth (ME) more bike-pedestrian friendly in Land Use Planning.

I have travelled to Samsoe, Denmark and worked with their Energy Academy to understand their complete transition to renewable energy for Rethinking Energy.

And these are just some of the amazing experiences we can embark while being at College of the Atlantic!

Activities, traditions, celebrations:

Best meal on campus:

Israeli Cous Cous.
