Bowdoin uses its location to research climate change and environmental issues in its scientific field station on Kent Island and coastal studies center on Orr’s island.

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.

It has been an incredible experience so far. I love the campus and community, and the teachers compel me to work hard. I am in my second year, and I am loving every minute of it.
