Known for being quaint, high-functioning students and professors, liberal teachings combined with conservative realism, this college is a truly wonderful place. Also, it has the BEST college food in the U.S. in repeated ratings and welcomes visitors for meals.

Took a tour with my family that was guided by an extraordinarily articulate young man. If these are the results of what Bowdoin College produces, then that school has a future! Also took in a science fair where seniors were showing their research projects. Outstanding!...More

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.
