While Bowdoin may change over the years, the memories formed as students never fade away. We asked alumni to reminisce about their favorite places on campus, and hundreds responded. Consider just a few of those special memories. Filmed by Ali Ragan '16.

Feelings of elation and relief washed over prospective members of Bowdoin’s Class of 2020 (can you believe it—2020?) when letters of acceptance recently went out electronically and by good, old-fashioned snail mail. What do you remember about receiving your acceptance letter to Bowdoin?

About 25 maple trees with taps attached to the trunk, leading to a plastic bucket to collect the sap. Over Spring break Jeremy Tardif, the Bowdoin organic garden manager, is in the process of boiling down all that sap in the College kitchen to make maple syrup.  Learn more about this delicious process here!

To honor the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in 1616, two professors from Bowdoin's theater and English departments will present on the First Folio, the first published collection of Shakespeare's plays. Almost 400 years after the First Folio was published, this collection of 36 plays ...

TO BE AT HOME in all lands and all ages; To count Nature a familiar acquaintance...
Introduction
The Offer of the College
TO BE AT HOME in all lands and all ages;
To count Nature a familiar acquaintance,
And Art an intimate friend;
To gain a standard for the appreciation of others’ work
And the criticism of your own;
To carry the keys of the world’s library in your pocket,
And feel its resources behind you in whatever task you undertake;
To make hosts of friends...
Who are to be leaders in all walks of life;
To lose yourself in generous enthusiasms
And cooperate with others for common ends —
This is the offer of the college for the best four years of your life.

Adapted from the original “Offer of the College”
by William DeWitt Hyde
President of Bowdoin College 1885 - 1917
