Getting here:

I found COA from searching for the most environmentally friendly college and found this beautiful place! I immediately fell in love with it when I came for the fly in program and feel the same way now!

Favorite class:

My favorite class has been art and activism with Catherine Clinger

Life on Mount Desert Island:

I love the thrift store called Serendipity

Activities, traditions, celebrations:

I love Campus committee for Sustainability and open mic nights!

Passions & motivations:

Companies production of waste really grinds my gears

Adventures yet to come:

I have no clue right now but I would love to run a nonprofit helping those less fortunate while also mitigating waste companies produce. (If you have any suggestions please HMU) This answer may change because COA opens my eyes to so many things I may not have known

Best meal on campus:

Mac and cheese and grilled cheese with tomato soup

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

you love helping others


They use pieces of fettuccine as coffee stirrers instead of wasting wood or plastic

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

The egg
