    Description of School: 

    Bowdoin is one of the nation’s oldest, most prestigious liberal arts colleges, and also a 200-year-old idea: give students of uncommon promise access to the best education on earth, and they will use it to make good in the world.

    Bowdoin is fortunate to be in Maine, a state known for its beauty and independence, and our proximity to the ocean provides opportunity for serious research and simple days at the beach. Students can easily get to Portland, and a train or bus to Boston is within walking distance.

    If you like the idea of working in a community that values access and equity, collaborating with highly accomplished faculty and classmates, and welcoming big, new, difficult questions, Bowdoin might be the place for you.
