A modern liberal arts education takes whatever you’re passionate about—history, medicine, music, law, neuroscience, engineering, poetry, teaching, biology—and helps you understand how it will impact the world around you.
It is the mission of the College to engage students of uncommon promise in an intense full-time education of their minds, exploration of their creative faculties, and development of their social and leadership abilities. Bowdoin is all about connections; the people you meet here, whether faculty, staff, coaches and friends, will be your friends for a lifetime.
Bowdoin College’s Pickard Fields cover 35 acres of some of the best groomed field space in New England. Blessed with excellent natural drainage, the fields are supported by in-ground irrigation and are well-tended by a devoted field crew. Bowdoin College has been the host site for many NESCAC, New England, and Northeast Regional Rugby Tournaments for Division I and II men and women. The USA Women’s Eagles spent their 3-week Residential Camp here, prior to the 2010 World Cup.
