I've wanted to get out of Maine my entire life, that part hasn't changed whatsoever. What has changes is the growing respect that I have for the Town of Brunswick. While I am not looking back once I leave for college, the friendly atmosphere no matter where you are in Brunswick will certainly be missed by me. Whether you are walking around Bowdoin College, or getting a bite to eat down further on Main St. Brunswick is welcoming, I've come to learn that that's not a trait that every town or city possesses. Outside of the welcoming feel, the beauty of the town is truly remarkable. The Topsham Bridge, the Androscoggin River, Bowdoin College, Maine St in the winter. There is so much beauty in Brunswick. The diverse atmospheres is just another aspect to love about Brunswick. Whether that's busy Main St, or the quite housing streets scattered throughout. Brunswick is great.

Brunswick has a comfortable hometown atmosphere, while still providing a plethora of activities to do that other small towns don't have. You can watch the upcoming Bowdoin college sports event, eat out at the myriad of restaurants, or go skating on the green right in town!
If you like the small-town feel, the town of Brunswick is great! Everything shuts down at 1am, so not for those who want to party all night, but people will recognize you in town and in general the townies are pretty nice to the students.
