Getting here:

I grew up in a city in New Jersey right next to NYC that was packed with traffic and people, I wanted to get out and explore a part of the U.S I had never been to before. I visited COA and fell in love with the area and made the big decision to move to Maine!

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