After Bowdoin College

This small community, top-notch food and board, great professors and diverse community earns a 5-star review. My only objection is the extremely pc atmosphere; though, I'm sure that is common among many colleges. At Bowdoin, however, you can't ignore it.

I think that Bowdoin's community is absolutely exceptional. In the end, the connections you make during college -- both with peers and professors-- are extremely important for both your social life and your professional career. While I've been underwhelmed by a number of classes, I think the student body's attitude is one of a kind.
