Getting here:

I applied here my senior year of high school but knew I couldn’t come straight here. So I took a year off and spent 6 months backpacking and exploring Chilean Patagonia, an experience that shaped my outlook on life and school. Arriving here for the first time was a lot to take in but the place and people made it all worth it.


My most impactful classes so far have been a philosophy of nature class and an understanding of group dynamics that go hand in hand to shape a future in outdoor education.

My approach to human ecology:

My approach to human ecology is understanding that they’re is no one career, class or experience it’s the combination of them all that prepares you better for the future.

Life on Mount Desert Island:

Acadia is beautiful and it’s in our backyard!!! Bar Harbor is a tourist town

Passions & motivations:

Everything Outdoors!!

Best meal on campus:

Honey-glazed salmon. TAB has honey-glazed salmon… for lunch…

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

You have no idea what you want to do in your life, but you want to meet politically, emotionally, and academically engaged people who are also trying to figure it out.
