Old Guard

A record-setting number of Polar Bears enjoyed a wonderful weekend on campus for Reunion this year. With almost 1,800 people attending, the Classes of 1951, 1966, 1976, 1981, and 2006 all set attendance records for their respective Reunion years.

Classmates, family, and friends laughed at comedian Bob Marley, sampled the finest in New England craft beers, danced to Motown band Soul City, attended inspiring talks by fellow alumni, ate lobster, sang, savored the beauty of Bowdoin in the summertime, and most importantly, enjoyed visiting with old friends.
