Bowdoin Gets Shout-Out on ‘Mindy Project’

Bowdoin was featured in the plot of a recent episode of The Mindy Project, starring comedian Mindy Kaling.

Characters mentioned Bowdoin half a dozen times in the episode titled, “Take My Ex-Wife, Please” (the tenth episode of season five, available on Hulu), as Mindy and Jody plan a road trip to Maine to visit Bowdoin.

In a game of Six Degrees, the Bowdoin shoutout might stem from actor Ike Barinholtz, who plays Morgan on the show, and who, early in his career, once roomed with actor Hayes MacArthur ’99.
