How did you first get involved in service at Bowdoin?
My first service experience at Bowdoin was with America Counts, tutoring students in math for Mt. Ararat Junior High. Caitlin McDonald, Coordinator of Community Service Programs, who interviewed me for the job, encouraged me to continue. She showed me different ways of doing service, and I guess that is where I am now. A lot of thanks go to Caitlin.
What have you gained from your service experiences and working in the community?
I owe my Bowdoin experience to service. I am not kidding, look at my activities! I am confident to say that I know much more than most students on campus, about Bowdoin and the surrounding communities. Service projects open great opportunities to learn, branch out, make friends, and have fun while...having fun.
What does it mean to serve the common good?
I guess to be there.
