Calling it one of the great events of the year, President Clayton Rose welcomed students, alumni, families, and friends, and thanked them for their support of Bowdoin’s scholarship aid program.

“It is your generosity, like the generosity of those that have come before, that has allowed generations of students, like those extraordinary students who are with us this afternoon, to thrive at Bowdoin,” said President Rose.
