We build this place together

Making change is a central part of COA’s mission. We put it into practice by involving students, faculty, and staff in governing the college2020欧洲杯体育足球官网. It’s not necessarily the easiest way to get things done, but there’s no question we all learn a lot in the process.

So many interests, so little time

Knitting, soccer, poetry, foreign affairs, rock-climbing, circus arts, activism, foraging for wild edibles. COA students tend to be really into whatever they’re into. Student activities here are a mix of organized clubs, getting outdoors in Acadia National Park2020欧洲杯体育足球官网, regular events like concerts, lectures, films, and open mics, and a healthy dose of creative spontaneity.

You’ll forge your own path, but you won’t be alone

COA is a great place for self-directed people: you’ll chart your own course, both in class and out. But it’s impossible to be anonymous in such a small community, and you’ll find plenty of fellow travelers with whom to share the journey.

And did we mention the food?

2020欧洲杯体育足球官网 It’s ridiculously good.
