This project provides Bowdoin alumni an opportunity to share stories from their time at the College via brief oral history interviews conducted by Special Collections & Archives staff. Interviewees are encouraged to recount stories of what brought them to the College, pre-orientation trip memories, campus life, study abroad, and the people that shaped their Bowdoin experience, from fellow students to faculty and staff.

Interviews are sorted by year recorded.
