Bowdoin’s 18th Annual Common Good Day will take place on Saturday, September 17th from 11:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Join 500 of your fellow students, faculty, staff and alumni to pitch in and learn about your local community. Dozens of partner organizations will host projects, including outdoor cleanup, painting, office support, spending time with seniors and children, and much more.
