    I was recently writing out my degree plan, a document which helps guide students towards fulfilling graduation requirements, and I realized that there were still tons of classes that I wanted to take beyond the minimums. It's hard to pick between all the options, and I feel really lucky to be able to take so many field based classes.

    Prescott College, in my mind has a mission of taking the students out into nature and giving each of them the opportunity to discover that it is that they are passionate about and how they can bring it back into society to help create harmony, balance and love. Not only that, but also this school supports the adventurous immersion of self into life in a very well rounded way. They give opportunities for the students to come together to create community through art, movement, health-conscious food, music, cultural expression, connection with the Earth, etc.

    Prescott is an amazing community, and the most difficult aspect would have to be the housing crunch. Finding a place to live with people you can stand is crucial, and will effect how you feel about your time here in either direction. Prescott College has given me amazing opportunities such as a month spent on a horse ranch studying equine assisted therapy and a visit to a Buddhist temple for world religions, experiences that make my education feel more practical and real-world applicable.
