Getting here:

I landed in Bangor and was convinced that COA was a sham or something, since nothing  looked familiar. Cherie Ford came to pick me up and was wearing a COA t-shirt. I immediately felt a sense of relief and I knew that everything was going to be okay. Thus, I don’t think my journey to get to COA matters anymore. All that matters now is that I’ll be starting my junior year very soon and everything is going to be okay *cough* internship, senior projects *cough*.   

Favorite class:

Human Anatomy and Physiology I&II, Introduction to Guitar, Biology II, and World Percussion have been my favourite classes at COA. However, as my focus becomes clear I’m starting to enjoy most of my classes. 

Passions & motivations:

Potential. There is nothing that keeps me awake at night more than knowing that I didn’t do my best or I could’ve done more.

Adventures yet to come:

I am interested in Reproductive Biology, Fertility, and Woman’s Health so my ultimate goal is to work in the Global Health field. 

Best meal on campus:

Beef stroganoff, garlic bread, and Fancy Schmancy (that’s the actual name) Mac’n’Cheese at TAB. Also, a strawberry, mango, yoghurt, and almond milk smoothie at Sea Urchin.

COA might be the right college for you if...

You don’t want to define who you are- at least, not for now. Realize that definitions or putting labels on yourself only lead to limitations. So, if you think that that is/could be you, what are you waiting for?

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Does it matter? Both taste good.
