Former Bowdoin Fraternity Honors Student Artists

The old Bowdoin fraternity Delta Sigma/Delta Upsilon recently awarded $200 each to five students for art they submitted to its annual competition. The fraternity, which was once the campus epicenter for artists, musicians and progressive social action, has held a juried art show at Bowdoin every year since 1999.

The Delta Sigma/Delta Upsilon Art Competition invites any student to submit artwork in any medium. This year about 30 students participated, and three Maine-based Bowdoin alumni judged the pieces. The winning students were Sarah Haimes ’15, Victoria Guen ’13, James Boeding ’14, David Bruce ’13 and Audrey Blood ’13.

    Tell the obvious non-Bowdoin grad who writes your headlines on an article in the BDS to never refer to fraternities as “frats”. Follow the long tradition at Bowdoin of calling “frats” as fraternities, please.

  2. Robert C Foster III says:

    The beleaguered fraternities, finally beaten into submission by Preident Coles and Roy Greason were NEVER called FRATS. Maybe a lot of other things, but, heaven help us, never FRATS.
