President, Deans, Staff Welcome (and Reassure) 1st-Year Parents

cristlecollinsjuddParents and family members were likely offering their 18-year-olds plenty of last-minute advice yesterday as they helped the students move into dorm rooms and prepare for their first year of college. At the same time, family members were not spared nuggets of wisdom offered by people very familiar with the Bowdoin experience.

Relatives of incoming students gathered in Kanbar Auditorium/Studzinski Recital Hall for two different sessions to listen to members of Bowdoin’s administration speak about what incoming students might experience in the coming four years. These experts (many of whom have sent their own kids off to college) also offered a bit of advice to parents.

Read excerpts of remarks from President Barry Mills, Dean for Academic Affairs Cristle Collins Judd, Dean of First-Year Student Janet Lohmann, and others.
