Members of the Class of 2016 assembled before the Museum of Art early Saturday evening for an annual rite of passage for first-years — a Bowdoin welcome from President Barry Mills and a rendition of their newly learned alma mater, “Raise Songs to Bowdoin.”
Students on the Kent Island orientation trip spent four days at the Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island, which lies in the middle of the Bay of Fundy. To get to the small island off the coast of New Brunswick, students had to take a ferry and then a lobster boat. Once on the island, trip members observed and participated in research on sea birds, hiked around the island and swam along the rocky coast.

"William Wegman: Hello Nature" at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art through Oct. 21, 2012.
Nearly back-to-back articles in The Boston Globe have shared aspects and observations of artist William Wegman and the Bowdoin College Museum of Art exhibition Hello Nature featuring his work. In the course of three days, the Globe ran a review by Sebastian Smee and another piece, a Q&A, “William Wegman: Artist, Collector of Encyclopedias,” in which the artist shares his reading preferences, his vice for smartphone games — and that he collects encyclopedias.
