How to Submit an Ad

Who May Place Ads

Members of the Bowdoin College Community (students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the Association of Bowdoin Friends) may place free classified ads on this site. If you indicate you are a member of the Bowdoin College Community, and it can not be verified, your ad will not be accepted.

Individuals who are not members of the Bowdoin Community may place an ad for $20. A check payable to Bowdoin College must be mailed to Sara Smith, Office of Communications and Public Affairs, Bowdoin College, 3900 College Station, Brunswick, ME 04011, along with a copy of the ad text. Handwritten, paper ads mailed in without an electronic submission are not accepted. 

Ads will not be posted until payment is received. Please include a copy of the ad text with payment to help avoid unnecessary delays.
