What excites you about the idea of spending a semester living and studying on the Maine Coast? Is it the science field work, the opportunity to explore Maine on wilderness trips, the excitement about eating the food you help to produce on our organic farm, the desire to learn more about alternative energy sources or the chance to be part of a semester of 41 other individuals who have all decided to do something different? Whatever it is, you have less than 10 days left to make that excitement a possibility. Deciding to spend a semester living on the Maine Coast is not for everyone, but our alumni would all tell you applying to Chewonki Semester School was one of the best decisions they made in life. Ella Driscoll, Semester 47 and Class of 2017 at Bowdoin College shares her perspective in the letter below.
