Emotional scenes on campus on August 22, 2017, as the Class of 2021 moved into their dorm rooms. Student helpers were on hand as carloads of incoming first years and their families arrived in Brunswick from all corners of the country.
For many it was a bittersweet occasion, a chance to say “goodbye and good luck,” as these new Bowdoin arrivals prepare for “the best four years of their lives.”
After settling into their new dorm rooms, first years headed to Farley Field House for a barbecue before “camping out” inside the building. The following morning students are headed out on their various orientation trips across the state. Classes begin Wednesday, August 30, 2017.
