Maine Day

A day dedicated to Maine's high school seniors.
Each fall we dedicate a special day to Maine's high school seniors. This year we invite you to virtually meet a panel of current Bowdoin students who also grew up in Maine. Hear from them and find out:
  • How did they learn about Bowdoin as high school students?
  • What brought them to Bowdoin?
  • What resources enabled them to adjust to a new environment in their home state and what has kept them at Bowdoin year after year?
  • How did they get involved in the Bowdoin community and continue to be connected to the greater Maine community? 

Registration for 2021 

October 5, 2021
7-8 PM Eastern Time

Join a panel of Maine students and a Bowdoin admissions counselor. This webinar-style Zoom presentation will include plenty of time for Q&A! We look forward to sharing why Maine and its students are a special part of the Bowdoin community.
