Campus Visit Notes for Bowdoin College


Visit Description:

overall people were nice. but:do not go to bowdoin unless you like to party and drink. that seems to be the main (and sort of only) thing people do for fun. also people look down on you if you reject booze. other than that, people work really hard and than unwind on the weekends by getting totally trashed. if thats what your looking for in college, than bowdoin is great, if not...than stay far far away.
