    One of the best schools I've seen. Been living on campus during the summer since I was in 7th grade. Now I'm a senior and I'm sure this is the school for me.

    A welcoming place for even a visitor with a great campus vibe and environment. Unique from all of the other schools I visited. Smart and committed staff as well as students as it seems like everyone at Bowdoin loves being at Bowdoin.

    A small but large enough campus. Students who get excited about what they study. Beautiful community of people and lovely surrounding area.

    Bowdoin is a fantastic school that challenges you academically and opens your mind to new ideas. The people and the town are wonderful. As a student, you will feel spoiled; but in a good way.

    Bowdoin is absolutely amazing. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else for the next four years. A place with a friendly atmosphere, supportive professors, a rigorous curriculum, and great food.

    Bowdoin is hands down the best school I applied to! The financial aid is Ivy caliber, the college is extremely competitive to get into, and the general atmosphere is excellent. At Bowdoin you feel welcomed from the moment you set foot on campus even if you aren't sure you're going to be attending.

    I chose this school over the University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, and the honors college at the University of Michigan because it has the rare combination of academic rigor, high quality of life, and a selective campus full of people who are kind and intelligent. The school was also very generous in the amount of financial aid I received. If you have a love of learning and enjoying nature's wonders, consider Bowdoin very seriously in your college search.
