Moments at Bowdoin College

What is this?

The Bowdoin College homepage changes every weekday when students are on campus and the College is in session.

At the top, we feature a Bowdoin moment: two photos that attempt to capture a genuine interaction or scene between members of our campus community—including students, staff, faculty, parents, alumni, and visitors.

(During breaks, holidays, and global health crises, homepage moments may change less frequently. Homepage moments over Winter Break are often built using materials from the George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives.)
