Bowdoin's Food is the Best - Again!

Story posted August 22, 2006

For the second consecutive year, Bowdoin College has the best campus food in the country, according to the latest rankings by the Princeton Review.

Once again ranked overall as one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, Bowdoin is featured in "The Best 361 Colleges," the new 2007 edition of its "best colleges" guide, published August 22, 2006.

In the book's Bowdoin profile, the College is described as well run, with great lab and computer facilities, library, food, and residence halls.

Regularly acknowledged nationally for boasting some of the country's premier college food, Bowdoin again claimed the #1 spot on the Princeton Review's list of "Best Campus Food."

Bowdoin also made a huge jump in the rankings for "School Runs Like Butter." Bowdoin's notable smooth operations launched Bowdoin up to the #2 spot from last year's ranking of #19.

Bowdoin also appears on the Princeton Review's rankings for "Dorms Like Palaces" (#17).

The rankings are based on student ratings of their schools and reports of their experiences there. Only about 15% of the four-year colleges in America make it into the book.

The Princeton Review, a New York-based company known for its education, admission and test-prep-services, posts the book's ranking lists on its Web site.
