Admitted Students

Welcome Class of 2021

Video: Offer of the College


We could not be more thrilled to welcome you — and your talents and perspectives — to the incoming first-year class at Bowdoin. We hope that you're equally excited to join us on the coast of Maine come fall.

Please join us at our Admitted Student Open House April 20-22.

The Bowdoin Orient, the Bowdoin Admissions Facebook page and Bowdoin Class of 2021 group are all great ways to learn more and meet future classmates. If these don't provide the answers you seek, connect with a current Bowdoin student or a member of the admissions staff.

Bowdoin is a place with rich history. The academic environment here rewards deep, individual inquiry and thrives on meaningful collaboration with peers and with faculty. Students place a premium on environmental and social responsibility; they care for the people and the world around them. And (perhaps best of all) Bowdoin is in Maine.

Best of luck as you make an important college decision. And, as always, Go U Bears!
