Bowdoin Stories

The individual narrative of each Bowdoin student is central to defining the College. Bowdoin Stories began in 2015 as a collection of short interviews between Bowdoin students, to give each of them an opportunity to become part of Bowdoin’s history while still on campus.

In Spring 2020, Bowdoin Stories was relaunched as a platform where all members of the Bowdoin community can contribute stories about their experiences with COVID-19. For more information about this effort, including information on how to contribute, see Documenting Bowdoin & COVID-19.
