My daughter is a Senior this year and we visited Bowdoin in late August. I love the school and the area of Brunswick Maine. Great visit all the way around.

Beautiful buildings with few roads allow for pleasant walks. School was in session but was quiet on a Saturday morning with a few students up and about at mid-morning.

Took a walking tour of the campus, looked in the church, walked through buildings and enjoyed the school immensely. Met a worker who shared alot of information about the history which made it all the better.

This was one of my favorite colleges on our three day college tour. The campus is small and beautiful and the town of Brunswick is an adorable college town.

Beautiful campus to walk around! There is an art gallery and various events open to the public. Check their schedule online before your visit. A map can also be found online.

I was visiting friends and they had a soccer tournament on the fields of Bowdoin. It is a picturesque campus and very well maintained grounds.
