Bowdoin and Brunswick are thoroughly interwoven. A cinema, music store, farmer's market and dozens of restaurants and boutiques are a five minute walk from campus. Community members attend Bowdoin performances, cheer for Bowdoin teams, and host students in their homes. However, Brunswick isn't just a "college town." As a gateway to many of Maine's more beautiful coastal locations and a summertime host to the Maine State Music Theatre and the Bowdoin International Music Festival, Brunswick is also home to a thriving arts community and a healthy tourism industry.
