This year many graduating seniors and recent alumni have received national fellowship that will take them around the world to work, teach, or do research next year. See the full list.
Jean Yarbrough, Bowdoin’s Gary M. Pendy Professor of Social Sciences and author of Theodore Roosevelt and the American Political Tradition (University Press of Kansas, 2014), talks about comparisons between Roosevelt and Donald Trump on the syndicated radio program The Howie Carr Show.
Yarbrough, interviewed by Howie Carr Show producer Steve Robinson ’11, also spoke of being a minority—a conservative Republican in a liberal arts college setting. Listen to the segment.
Each semester, we profile a College House, one of the eight houses that make up what some call Bowdoin’s “living rooms.”
The College Houses are all former fraternities that are occupied today by sophomores. Each year first-year students who are interested in hosting campus-wide academic and social events, and shaping the campus culture, apply to live in the houses during their second year here. Then throughout the academic year, house residents organize talks, tastings, debates, and parties in their communal living spaces. They also create special social events just for the first-year affiliates assigned to their house.
This semester, we profile Reed House, on Boody Street. The house, once the home of Alpha Eta of Chi Psi, was dedicated on September 28, 2007, in memory of Thomas Brackett Reed (1839-1902), Class of 1860, a U.S. Representative from Maine and speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Stories of gratitude and inspiration were aplenty at Bowdoin’s Scholarship Appreciation Luncheon May 12, 2016.
The annual event brings together hundreds of students with the donors—alumni, parents, and friends of the College—who have provided the financial support that makes a Bowdoin education possible for them. The remarks, a slideshow of images, and a video featuring three generations of Bowdoin giving here.
