We realize that designing an education can be education in itself, so we’ve developed a collaborative network to help take you through all four years.
It starts during Orientation when you meet with your pre-major faculty advisor -- a faculty member who knows the ins-and-outs of academic life and can help you choose courses, learn about activities, and identify support resources that will most help. Once you declare your major in your sophomore year, you’ll work closely with a faculty member in your department to shape your major to your interests, explore ideas for independent studies or an honors project, and begin bridging to post-college plans.
Almost everyone you meet will play a part in shaping your education. You’ll get advice from faculty members you take courses with, athletic coaches, proctors. Your fellow Bowdoin students will provide some of the most outstanding support you can find. Dozens of them volunteer to work as peer mentors and writing tutors. You’ll find study groups in dining halls, libraries, and sunning on the Quad.
