Bowdoin College offered a lifetime experience of education as well as life experience. With the small student size I was able to have close connection with professors and make life long friends. While studying biology and environmental studies I was able to spend significant class time on the Maine coast studying the rocky intertidal. The hands on experience was remarkable and added to an experience of a lifetime. I loved my time at Bowdoin.
