Bowdoin Bears

The Bowdoin Bears, Bowdoin’s participation society, recognizes and thanks loyal alumni that give to the Alumni Fund year in and year out. 

A paw print is placed next to the name of each alumnus in the Report of Gifts with a history of five or more years of continuous giving to the Alumni Fund, or continuous giving since graduation for the youngest classes. Bowdoin’s mascot, the Polar Bear, is described by alumni as “fiercely loyal,” “dependable” and representative of strength, making the paw print emblematic not only of Bowdoin but also of the donors who, through continued support, guarantee Bowdoin’s margin of excellence. Out of those who give to the Alumni Fund each year, over half are loyal members of The Bowdoin Bears.

Bowdoin sincerely appreciates the steadfast commitment of The Bowdoin Bears.
