I taught at Bowdoin almost thirty years ago. The place has some newer buildings, but the feel of the campus has not changed at all. A fine collection of buildings built for purpose, not to make for uniformity in design.

Bowdoin College and their museum is a great place to visit while in the area. The campus is small and flat, making getting around on foot very easy. Highly recommended!

Bowdoin College has an inviting campus, with parking designated for visitors, an arctic museum and an art museum. It is also the sponsor of many concerts and cultural activites open to the public.

I enjoyed visiting my friends and also returning to the Bowdoin campus and athletic facility. There was a Fitter and Faster Swim Clinic which we attended. I took a walk through the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, a wonderful small museum.

I'll be honest. I'm really biased. I would be so happy if my son came here. I know it's a great school. And I'm in love with Maine. With that as a baseline, I was very disappointed with the info session that we participated in....More
