for anyone living here or travelling through, a quick must-see! A beautiful art museum, historic buildings, miles of wonderful walkways and in the summer the best music theatre in New England

“Friendly campus open to the comm it's”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

With two good little museums, fu. Sports and a summer host to the Maine State Musical Theater, this campus is worth a visit anytime. There is usually lots going on and it welcomes its community and visitors. Do stop in the art museum which is a lovely jewel and openings are especially fun as they are held outside on the steps of the campus.

“Lovely Campus”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Bowdoin is one of America's most highly regarded colleges, and its campus is beautiful to drive or walk through. In addition to the classroom buildings and dorms, there is an art museum, and in the summer the college sponsors a music program.

“Top College with Exquisite Campus that Welcomes All”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

You don't have to go back to school to appreciate Bowdoin. Adds so much to Brunswick in terms of vitality, a lovely quad and campus, Broadway musicals in summer, an international classical music program, and so much more. Everyone can take advantage of this centerpiece of the town. Great to see all the smart and savvy students too!
