What Students Are Saying
Have a great interview!!
Scott from Kent, CT
Try to apply for the Bowdoin Explore program that pays for you to stay and visit the college for a weekend. It will let you know whether the school is right for you. Don't let senior year slip up either. Three years of work can be ruined by one lazy year.
Allyson from West Bloomfield, MI
Check out all the different clubs on campus. There are so many for such a small school!
Samuel from South China, ME
Come in and be open to everything you never thought you would do. You will love yourself for doing it.
Jared from South Orange, NJ
If you're interested in Bowdoin it only makes sense to visit the campus and check out everything from classrooms to dorm rooms to the famous and amazing dining halls.
Marcela from Saint Louis, MO
It is very important that you are committed to extra-curricular activities and have participated in community service events. Bowdoin is also test-optional.
Symone from Calumet City, IL
You'll be happy where ever you go, but being a polar bear gives you international pride.
AM New York, NY
Be prepared for anything at anytime. A lot of activities happen at Bowdoin for everything you could think of. Ask about the Colby-Bates rivalry and you have yourself a wonderful and funny conversation. If you're shy, this might not be the place for you because there is no hiding at such a small school and soon you'll know everyone on campus, have dinner at your professors house, or walking the town of Brunswick with a group of diverse friends bigger than you ever could imagine.
Taylor from Baltimore, MD
Study hard and get involved! You've probably heard this a million times, but you'll be glad if you do. Talk with people from the college whether they be students, professors, or coaches so that you can ask specific questions.
Be prepared academically. Professors expect your best!
