About Student Activities

Our office, located in Smith Union behind the Information Desk, helps to enhance the student experience outside of the classroom. Along with support for the student leaders of over 100 organizations, the Student Activities Office assists in the coordination of social, cultural and educational programs.

Our experienced staff  thoroughly enjoys coaching students through the event planning process to help them achieve their programming goals. Whether it’s planning poetry slams, bringing engaging speakers or putting on spectacular campus wide concerts to enrich the Bowdoin experience, we will work with you along the way. When spending time in our office you are likely to frequently hear the phrase, “let’s figure out how to make this happen,” as our mission is to support the wide array of student-run organizations and present endless opportunities for students to get involved on campus.
