Getting here:

My grandmother’s love for COA was apparent through all the stories she would tell of the college’s fascinating past. It is through those conversations that I fell in love with COA. Or it’s in my genetic makeup, either way COA is rad and I’ve had my mind set on attending since 9th grade.
