Students Take Over Bowdoin’s Instagram, Offer Glimpses of A Maine Summer

Check out Bowdoin’s Instagram to see what some students who stayed local are up to this summer.

They’re interning at Eagle Island, the retirement home of polar explorer Robert Peary. They’re conducting science experiments in a Druckenmiller lab, interning for The Nature Conservancy, or working for Bowdoin facilities, Bowdoin Day Camp, or the Hawthorne-Longfellow Library.

These “takeovers” — plus many others — are the students living and working on campus or nearby who have become Bowdoin’s social media ambassadors this summer, providing a look into what life in Maine can be like for a student. They’ll continue to post to Bowdoin’s Instagram through mid-August.

The project was dreamed up by social media intern Mariah Rawding ’18, who was impressed by what students were doing this summer and wanted to showcase the diversity of activity on campus and nearby. Check out the Instagram, or go to Bowdoin News to catch up on a few recent posts.
