COA students tend to have eclectic interests—and lots of them. Much of our energy is channeled into coursework, but we also make room to pursue plenty of other passions outside of class. In the evenings, there may be film screenings, theater productions, poetry out loud, or a meeting to organize a trip to a protest or conference. Students also get together in both official clubs and unofficial groups to botanize, do fiber arts, make music, or create a pop-up restaurant. You’re in a community full of really smart, creative people: who knows what you’ll cook up together.

Current student organizations:
  • Anime and Gaming Club
  • Botany Club
  • COA Council on Foreign Affairs
  • College of the Atlantic Quidditch Team
  • Earth in Brackets
