To celebrate the Class of 2018’s first few adventurous days of college, the Bowdoin Outing Club on Thursday evening presented a slideshow of photographs taken by students during their orientation trips.
The outing club offers many different three-day orientation trips featuring an array of activities: backpacking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, sailing, stand-up paddleboarding, mountain biking and more. Other students join community service trips organized by the McKeen Center for the Common Good or participate in the Bowdoin Science Experience.
Together, the student photos display the beauty and wildness of Maine, giving the rest of us a window on some spectacular, and often remote, areas of the state. Click through the slideshow below to see a sample of pictures.
