Visitors to Bowdoin will soon have quite a few more places to park, following changes to the College’s parking policies announced on Thursday.

"William Wegman: Hello Nature" at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art through Oct. 21, 2012.
The Bowdoin College Museum of Art’s William Wegman: Hello Nature exhibition is among seven shows listed in a New York Times round-up of “Out of Town” exhibitions. Echoing language from the Aug. 17 review, “Postcards in an Artist’s Journey,” the Times listing calls the Wegman show “beguiling” and lauds the artist’s “characteristically witty, offhand works of the past two decades.”
Students continued to scale mountain peaks, kayak or raft down rapids, sail, surf, canoe, etc. on day two of their orientation trips. Meanwhile, other students were volunteering at farms and nonprofits.
