Slideshow: First Years Pass on Their Wisdom to Incoming Class Archives


Janet Lohmann, dean of first-year students, invited students from the Class of 2015 to Moulton Union Tuesday night to celebrate the near completion of their first year at Bowdoin. She also asked that they pass on their advice for the incoming class, a now four-year tradition that Lohmann says is always appreciated. Over bowls of ice cream, students scribbled – or penned neatly – onto little notes what they wished they had known coming into Bowdoin. Lohmann plans to photograph and post the different pieces of advice to a Flikr stream that will be part of the Orientation site for the Class of 2016. (See stream on upper left.)
