Bowdoin Included in Outside Magazine's "40 Best"

Story posted August 13, 2003

Bowdoin and Brunswick are recognized as among "the coolest places to work, play, study, party and live" by Outside, a publication devoted to "adventure, travel, and outdoor recreation." The magazine claims to have canvassed "hundreds of colleges" before narrowing "the honor roll down to 40 schools that turn out smart grads with top-notch academic credentials, a healthy environmental ethos, and an A+ sense of adventure."

The section on Bowdoin, which includes a color photo of an Outing Club whitewater trip on the Penobscot River, was written by Lauren M. Whaley '03. It describes the College's proximity to Casco Bay and to several rivers and ski areas. It also refers to Bowdoin's new Schwartz Outdoor Leadership Center (named for Bowdoin alumnus and trustee Steven M. Schwartz '70 and his wife and business partner Paula Mae Schwartz), noting the center's "extensive map library, industrial kitchen, and overflowing gear room."

Other colleges and universities listed among the magazine's "Top 40" include Cornell, Dartmouth, Middlebury, Princeton, Stanford and Williams.
