Getting here:

A high school teacher of mine recommended COA to me and I knew it was a good fit right away. It was actually the only college I applied to and I was planning on taking a gap year in case I would not get in.

Favorite class:

I took a class called “Agricultural history: Apples”. It was a really good choice to start my time at COA with this course. As an international student, it offered a great introduction to New England and made me feel more at home.

My approach to human ecology:

Environmental- + social science= Human Ecology

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

like interconnectedness and creating your own path.


I just keep wondering if I am the only person who was shocked when I saw a deer swimming the first time?

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

The egg, definitely the egg!
