Visit and Virtual

On-Campus Tours and Information Sessions

Begin your visit with an introduction and Q&A with a Bowdoin Admissions officer. Then, join a student-led tour that highlights academic and student life on campus.  Pre-registration is required for information sessions and tours.

If you're visiting at a time when a student led tour is not offered, you can take a self-guided tour. Maps and a tour booklet are available just to the left of the entrance to the Admissions building and are accessible 24/7. You can also supplement your self-guided tour with our mobile audio tour. 

Virtual Information Sessions

Attend one of our many information sessions or special topic workshops hosted by admissions officers. Previously-recorded information sessions are also available on the arts, athletics, and more. 

Student Chats

Hosted by students for students. This is your chance to learn about campus culture, academic and research opportunities, residential life, and more. Bring your questions and join the conversation!


Students applying for admission in fall 2025 can request an in-person or virtual interview with a Bowdoin admissions officer or student. Interviews begin on May 30, and pre-registration is required.

Interviews are also available September through December 1st with Bowdoin alumni across the world. These are official admissions interviews and are a great way to learn more about the College.
