Getting here:

Many many started and failed essays for other colleges, and the “why do you think you belong at College of the Atlantic?” essay that was started and finished in a matter of thirty minutes. Also, they showed me how to make delicious gluten free, vegan pretzels over zoom for the Fall Fly In. How could I NOT come??


Human Ecology Core Course, Constitutional Law, and Writing for Nonprofits

Favorite class:

All of them!

My approach to human ecology:

Food systems 🌱 + Water conservation 🌊 + Community Organizing 📝= Human Ecology

Life on Mount Desert Island:

Biking to get my groceries, studying by the ocean, walking the carriage roads in autumn. There is so much beauty here.

Passions & motivations:

We get to create the world we want to live in. I want to see thriving farmers, close-knit communities, and better education about environmental issues. We get to decide how to make that happen! Pretty exciting :)

Adventures yet to come:

Thru hiking the SHT, biking around Lake Superior, finishing another journal to add to the archives

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

you love to listen to people talk about their passions, and want to talk for hours about yours
