What do you want to make sure people know about COA?
The college's philosophy of interdisciplinary learning and its vision of a good global citizen attracted me to COA. I wanted to explore social development through multiple perspectives.

COA is a safe, small, beautiful, concerned, encouraging, and challenging environment for learning.
