Students were invited to an elegant party at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art last Friday evening to see the William Wegman show, Hello Nature, and mingle with staff and faculty. A local Weimaraner family — a mother, father and puppy — was also invited, and students posed with the dogs for Polaroid snapshots.
“We want this event to set the tone for the year,” Director of Student Life Allen Delong said. The Student Activities office organized the party after hearing from students that they wanted more formal, mature events that included alcohol but weren’t typical college parties.
