High-Achieving High School Students, From Near and Far, Explore Bowdoin Archives

For the past few days, many high school students from Maine and around the country have been on campus getting a feel for Bowdoin before applying for admission.

Many of the students – 56 to be exact – were here for Explore Bowdoin, a multi-day program designed to welcome gifted students who would bring cultural or geographic diversity to the campus if they were to matriculate. Bowdoin covers the cost of their visit, and there is no commitment to apply, explained Claudia Marroquin, associate dean of multicultural recruitment for Bowdoin’s admissions office.

The Maine students on campus for Maine Day, Sept. 24, were also invited to attend classes, listen to panel discussions on topics such as financial aid, eat lunch in the dining halls and explore the campus with their families.
