    Bowdoin

    Post  derekha on Thu Dec 03, 2009 11:36 pm

    If you think that living in Maine means being located hours from all major urban areas, enduring long and miserable winters, and wearing uncomfortably thick coats for the majority of the year, then you are entirely correct. For students at Bowdoin College, however, living in Maine also means receiving a top-notch education at a school known for academic excellence, happy students, and excellent cafeteria food.

    Located three hours away from Boston in Brunswick, Maine, Bowdoin is a private liberal arts college founded in 1794. Among its graduates are two of the most famous writers in American history: Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

    Today, Bowdoin remains one of the most prestigious (albeit underrated) institutions of higher learning in America. It was the first college to be dubbed “School of the Year” by College Prowler, and it is currently ranked sixth among liberal arts colleges by the U.S. News and World Report. Although it is traditionally known for humanities and social sciences, Bowdoin’s strengths are remarkably diverse. Its strongest programs include natural sciences, classics, German, anthropology, English, government, environmental studies, and art history.

    The student-teacher ratio stands at 9 to 1, and professors are forced to teach every class personally because there are no graduate students. Bowdoin’s students have direct access to the brilliance and experience of their instructors, resulting in the intense and intimate academic environment which students expect when they come to a liberal arts college.

    Besides academics, Bowdoin’s students find ways to occupy themselves, even in cold, isolated Maine. Staying true to their reputation of being the outdoorsy type, three quarters of students at Bowdoin take part in field trips which include canoeing, kayaking, or hiking. On those really cold days, however, students can head over to the dining hall and enjoy what Princeton Review has deemed the second best campus food in America.

    Unfortunately, Bowdoin is extremely selective in its admissions process, accepting fewer than 20% of applicants. The most important factors considered by the admissions office include difficulty of high school classes, application essays, quality of recommendations, and extracurricular activities.

    Bowdoin’s tuition fee is high, but almost half of its students receive need-based financial aid as well as merit-based scholarships each worth an average of $1000 dollars.
