“Like Audubon, Kate Furbish worked on a real-life scale to represent the plants as accurately as possible,” Kat Stefko from the Bowdoin College Library said. Furbish began her illustrations by making detailed pencil renderings, which she then filled in with watercolors. Learn more about her impressive work here!

Good morning on a Monday, Polar Bears! Thanks to Instagram user @carolinads13 for posting this pic of a banana chocolate chip waffle with the Bowdoin seal from over the weekend. Bowdoin Dining never disappoints.

Friendly student volunteers were on hand Tuesday morning, August 23, 2016, to lend a hand and welcome carloads of incoming first-years and their families. The Class of 2020 arrived on campus from all corners of the country, and beyond, laden with luggage to move into their new dorm rooms. For many it was a bittersweet occasion, a chance to say “goodbye and good luck,” as these new Bowdoin arrivals prepare for “the best four years of their lives.”

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
