The professors are fantastic to work with and dedicate large amounts of time outside of class to helping their students. Certain departments are a bit short-staffed and could use more professors.
Something to consider if you're planning a STEM major, the research options are meager. Obviously a smaller institution cannot compete with a large research university so consider what you hope to achieve. Bowdoin would be a great place for your gen ed credits and then move on once you've narrowed your focus.
Doesn’t live up to its reputation and was disappointed. Expected a much better education and environment. Way too much drinking. Food is great if you are vegan/vegetarian, otherwise not.
