Campus Visit Notes for Bowdoin College


Visit Description:

We visited twice - once in the Spring of Junior year for a tour and once in the fall of Senior year for an interview. Both trips were very pleasant. On the second trip, after the interview, we wandered around campus alone a bit. We looked at the athletic facilities and the woman at the desk was very pleasant and helpful. There were some sporting events going on, so we spent a little time watching those. The area around campus is very nice, it appears to be residential on three sides with a small commercial 'downtown' on one side.
