Student Activities make an important contribution to the social, cultural and intellectual life on campus. The Student Activities Office is student-centered and provides students with leadership development opportunities via more than 100 student-run organizations and various types of co-curricular programming.
Student-run clubs and organizations present an array of programs, services and activities for the College community. Membership in organizations is open to all students. Groups are chartered by the Student Organization Oversight Committee (SOOC) of the Bowdoin Student Government, and are supported by staff in the Student Activities Office, as well as faculty and staff advisors.
The Bowdoin Student Government Assembly is the democratically-elected, autonomous body of students that advocate for the student body through issue engagement, programming, and services.
Class Councils are elected each year and promote class identity through social events, service programs and class swag. Some activities sponsored by the Class Councils include formal dances, community service days, karaoke nights and off campus trips and events.
The Leadership Development Series is a co-curricular program dedicated to helping students explore and develop their leadership potential through a variety of workshops, discussions and experiential opportunities.
