Maine Day Open House

Monday, October 5, 2015

A day dedicated to Maine's seniors.

Going "away" for college doesn't have to be about leaving Maine. As our guest for the day, you will discover that everything you're looking for - and much more than you'd expect - is available here in Brunswick.

We hope you'll join us for a day packed with information and inspiration.

Registration Information Coming Soon!

When you arrive on campus, please check in with us in the Coles Tower Lobby, right next to Daggett Lounge and Thorne Hall. A campus map will help you navigate, and information about parking is included at the bottom of this page.

If you have questions or need to cancel your plans for Maine Day, please contact Gail Stankiewicz in the Admissions Office at (207) 725-3234 or gstankie@bowdoin.edu.

Students, parents and guidance counselors are all welcome!
