Slideshow: Seniors, Staff, Faculty Ride the Rapids Archives

At the end of the year, the Bowdoin’s Outing Club traditionally invites seniors, staff and faculty to join a rafting trip down the Dead River, in a stretch upstream from the town of The Forks in Maine. This year, the group enjoyed a beautiful spring day to raft approximately 13 miles on a river release of over 7,000 cubic feet per second. The group, split between three rafts and nine kayaks, paddled through mostly big class III rapids, with class I, II and IV rapids mixed in between, according to Becca Austin, the outing club’s assistant director.
