Getting here:

I, unlike most, grew up on Mount Desert Island, so I was always familiar with the school. Although I did not anticipate studying at College of the Atlantic, I could not be more thrilled with my decision; being a COA student is a very distinct, unique, and special chapter of my time on MDI.

Classes

  • Trees and Shrubs of Mount Desert Island
  • Acadia: Exploring the National Park Idea
  • Sustenance
  • Python
  • Advanced Composition
  • Philosophy of Nature
  • Strategies for Social Change
  • Entomology
  • Physics and Mathematics of Sustainable Energy
  • Religious Intolerance in the United States

Favorite class:

Physics and Mathematics of Sustainable Energy gave me such important ways of quantifying, communicating, and thinking about renewable energy in a clear manner. As an extremely practical course, it challenges one to think, and hopefully act, on one of our planet’s most dire conditions—climate change.

Life on Mount Desert Island:

Living in and around a national park is nothing short of stunning. With the hills spotted with pink granite and the streams teeming with brook trout, what more could one desire?

Passions & motivations:

Writing, Stories, Fly Fishing

Adventures yet to come:

Next year I plan to study abroad in Europe because I wish to understand and experience what home is for others in a place much different than where I grew up.
