We took a spin around the college and the town of Brunswick while in Maine. Bowdoin has a nice campus with all brick buildings.

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

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.
