Getting here:

My grandmother used to work for the College. Her love for COA was apparent through all the stories she would tell of the college’s fascinating history. 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.
