Women’s soccer ends with loss to Stevens
The women’s soccer team’s season came to an end Sunday with a 4-1 loss to Stevens Institute of Technology in the second round of the NCAA tournament. The Polar Bears had previously defeated Johns Hopkins 3-2 in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The team ended the season with an overall record of 13-6-1.
“We knew we would have our work cut out for us, but we also felt like we had a reasonable chance to come away with a win. The whole team, I think, really came up in many ways,” said Head Coach Brianne Weaver.
Bowdoin started the first-round game against Hopkins off strong, when a cross from Maggie Godley ’16 was headed into the back of the net by Jamie Hofstetter ’16 in the 20th minute. However, Johns Hopkins evened the score in the 39th minute. Godley, assisted by Hofstetter, found the net once more after the halftime break, only for the Blue Jays to even the score again.With less than a minute left in regulation, Nikki Wilson ’18 scored her first career goal to put the Polar Bears through to the second round.
“To get a goal in the last minute was one of the most thrilling moments of the season, and it was truly a team effort,” Weaver said. “The goal was beautiful and was the work of [Hofstetter] and [Wilson], but all of the play leading up to that helped to create that opportunity. I don’t know if there have been many more thrilling victories in my coaching career.”
“The whole team stepped up for that game, and it was a lot of great individual performances,” said Assistant Coach Ellery Gould.
The next day, Bowdoin couldn’t stop Stevens Institute’s Raba Nassif, who scored three goals in Bowdoin’s 4-1 loss. Bowdoin was down 3-0 when Wilson scored her second goal in two days in the 55th minute.
“They were very fast, very physical,” Weaver said. “They pressured us heavily; they had control of the game at the first whistle. I think what we were most proud of is after we went down two goals, we started to settle down a little bit and actually just tried to play our game, and we actually got some good chances. To come back and get a goal against them was a big moral victory. The biggest takeaway for me was that the team kept fighting until the very end even though we were down three goals.”
The team’s season was marked by a major shift halfway through the season. According to Weaver, after starting the season 5-4-1 and losing two games back to back over Fall Break, the team’s attitude changed.
“The team just came together and said ‘Okay, this is going to be a turning point for us. We’re going to push and give it everything that we’ve got and make a run at the end,” said Weaver.The Polar Bears won seven games in a row and eight of their last 10.
“It was the most thrilling end to a season I’ve ever had,” Weaver said.
Weaver credited much of the team’s success to the leadership of the seniors. Hofstetter, who is a captain, led the team with eight goals and eight assists, and captain Bridget McCarthy ’16 finished her career with more time in goal (6049:58 minutes) than any other men’s or women’s goalkeeper in the school’s history.
The team will get a short break, but soon, the players will have to begin to look to the next season.
“Once we come back from winter break, it’s a full go mentality,” said Weaver. “You have nine months to prep for the season. It does take all that time and so much of it happens away from the field prior to August.”
Renovations restore historic Stowe House
The College has completed a renovation of the Harriet Beecher Stowe House, where the author lived in the 1850s while writing “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” The house now provides office space for faculty on leave.
Bowdoin purchased the house, known as the “Stowe House,” in 2001. Since then, it has suffered from disrepair and neglect. A series of proposals in 2005 might have allowed the College to restore the house, but the suggested renovations were postponed because of a lack of funding.
Constructed in 1806, the Stowe House is known best for being the home of Calvin and Harriet Beecher Stowe, the latter of whom published “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” in 1852 while her husband taught religion at Bowdoin.
The Stowe House has also accommodated a number of other historically important figures, such as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Joshua Chamberlain, both of whom are Bowdoin alumni. However, despite this historical and regional significance, by 2001 the house had fallen victim to structural damages and the presence of asbestos.
“[The house] was basically falling down,” said Associate Professor of Africana Studies and English Tess Chakkalakal. “They found quite a lot of asbestos and remnants of a fire, and that made it really dangerous for that house to be even standing.”
After a series of reviews, the College decided that a modest renovation was the best path forward. Although the disposition, or giving up, of the Stowe House was considered, a 2012 bond issue allowed the College to acquire the funds necessary for the $1.3 million renovations.
“We were at a crossroads, trying to figure out the best thing to do with it,” said Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration and Treasurer Katy Longley. “We thought about disposition, and we decided that the most responsible thing would be to do a modest renovation. The renovation cost would be about $1.3 million. I think the College has struggled since it acquired it in 2001 to figure out what to do with it.”
The renovations addressed the questionable structural integrity of multiple parts of the house, as well as the ongoing asbestos problem. In addition to repairing damaged sites, the repairs also restored the house to its 1850s appearance.
“The renovations have been done to get rid of the most structurally unsound parts of the building and return it to its 1855 condition, which is the historic period that’s closest to the Stowe residency,” said Katherine Randall ’16, who completed a digital timeline of the Stowe House in 2015. “It’s been about making [the house] more structurally sound, as well as restoring some of the architectural integrity and returning it to that beautiful neoclassical building that it was in the 1850s.”
“Harriet Beecher Stowe lived there from 1850 to 1852, while she wrote ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin,’ and there was a major renovation right after she left in the 1854 timeframe,” said Director of Finance and Campus Services Delwin Wilson. “It took a very simple house and made it much more Greek revival, much more ornate. So that’s more the time period that the interior is reflecting currently.”
Now that the restoration has been completed, one of the next questions to be addressed involves how the Stowe House will be used by both the College and the town of Brunswick. Although the newly renovated building has been used primarily for office space, a single room is being set aside to celebrate the intellectual and historical legacy of the Stowe House.
“Right now, there are offices in there, and those offices are occupied by faculty on leave, for their sabbaticals [and for] emerita faculty. It has turned into a nice place for faculty who are on leave or recently retired to think and work,” said Chakkalakal. “But I continue to hope that the College will try to revitalize some of its intellectual history in that space by perhaps making it into a center for faculty, students and even staff to have conversations.”
Additionally, the room not used as office space is intended to be open to the public, where people from all over can come and experience the storied history offered by the Stowe House.
“We want it to be a space that can be used equally by people who visit Brunswick or the College, by people who have no affiliation with the College, to come and understand Stowe’s legacy,” said Randall.
Rhetoric specialist hired to begin program at CLT
Next year, the Center for Learning and Teaching (CLT) will welcome Meredith McCarroll as its first-ever director of writing and rhetoric, a hire that addresses an apparent gap in Bowdoin’s curriculum—public speaking.
“When this position was endowed, it was endowed by someone who wanted to make sure that when Bowdoin students graduated, they could speak and write well,” said McCarroll. “As far as I understand it, there isn’t much of an emphasis on speaking at Bowdoin, and so that’s one of the things I will be working toward.”
Similar to the CLT’s Writing Project, the new Rhetoric initiative will be integrated into a number of classes, where students will be required to cooperate with tutors on certain projects and assignments.
“It probably goes without saying that writing and speaking are hugely important skills for Bowdoin students to master as they enter the job market, the workplace, graduate school and the civic arena, and these skills can always be improved, polished and perfected,” wrote Director of the Writing Project Kathleen O’Connor in an email to the Orient. “It’s great that the College is able to devote some more resources toward this goal.”
O’Connor was on the search committee to find a rhetoric director.
She added that the new hire could affect the current duties of writing assistants.“It’s possible that they may take on the task of helping students with oral presentations, or speaking assistants could be trained separately,” she wrote.
McCarroll will influence the curriculum as well—working with the First-Year Seminar program and collaborating with professors who want to incorporate oral communication into their coursework. She will also teach a few workshops a year on writing and speaking.
McCarroll has spent the past three years working at Clemson University in South Carolina, where she established the Writing Center that she currently directs.
She studied as an undergraduate at Appalachian State University before moving on to pursue a master’s degree in English at Simmons College. After that, she obtained her Ph.D. in English at the University of Tennessee.
McCarroll said that Bowdoin’s small size and the friendliness of the community attracted her.“I have long had the desire to find myself at a small liberal school. I did my undergraduate studies at Appalachian State, which then had about 13,000 students. And so when I went to Simmons, I thought about how dramatically different that experience was for students in a really positive way. I love the sense of community that comes with a smaller student body,” said McCarroll.
McCarroll recognized that the new program will require a period of review before it is able to reach its full potential.
“I think that the first stage will really be one of asking a lot of questions and listening to the responses,” she said. “The general sense that I have is that students are getting what they need in terms of writing, but there hasn’t really been any clear measurement of that, and there hasn’t been a sustained process of assessing how well students are doing. So, I think that what I’ll be doing is trying to better understand what the current situation is before I can suggest changes.”

Birgit Pols reflects on AIDS as memorial quilt travels to Smith Union
On Tuesday night at the Lamarche Gallery in David Saul Smith Union, Director of Health Services Dr. Birgit Pols shared her personal experiences treating AIDS at work and parenting a child with AIDS. Pols’ talk introduced the AIDS Memorial Quilt exhibit, which will be on display at the gallery until February 9.
Pols began by talking about being a medical student in an age when AIDS was not yet a major problem. In fact, AIDS was so rare in the late 80s that it was not even discussed in medical school.
“When I was a senior in college, the [Center for Disease Control] reported on AIDS for the first time,” said Pols. “I started medical school the next year, and not once through my entire medical school career was AIDS mentioned in the classroom.”
Disappointed by this hole in the curriculum, Pols and a few of her classmates gathered every Friday to learn more about AIDS by talking to those in the community diagnosed with the condition. A significant number of those sick were members of the LGBTIQ community.
Pols also recounted her relationship with Greg, an AIDS patient who she met while fulfilling her residency in South Carolina. Greg was openly gay and as a result suffered from bias throughout the duration of his treatment at the conservative facility.
“Homophobia prevailed [at the hospital], and gay AIDS patients seemed to provide permission for bigotry,” said Pols.
When Greg died some time later, Pols reshaped her professional and life goals to focus wholly on working with HIV/AIDS patients.
“Caring for [Greg] changed not only my career goals, but my life,” said Pols. “I became identified as ‘the’ doctor for taking care of people with AIDS who couldn’t afford private healthcare.”
While working in this capacity, Pols also served as Volunteer Director and Board Member of the Palmetto AIDS Life Support Services (PALSS) and the Medical University of South Carolina’s State Policy Committee.
The fear and discrimination aimed towards AIDS and the LGBTIQ community, resulted in a certain amount of discrimination against Pols and her mission, which often made it difficult to find employment.
“When I finished residency training, I was one of the most decorated residents to have ever graduated from the program, but while my colleagues had no trouble finding jobs, I was truly surprised not to receive a single job offer,” she said.
Pols also discussed her experience caring for an AIDS-stricken child, Cory, whom she and her partner adopted when no one else stepped forward. Despite constant care and frequent hospital visits, he died of AIDS-related complications.
Pols wrapped up the talk by pressing the need for constant efforts against HIV/AIDS. The number of those infected has remained largely stable since the 1990s, and even advances in medical technology have done little to help.
Bowdoin will showcase a part of the narrative AIDS Memorial Quilt in the Lamarche Gallery on the second floor of Smith Union until February 9. Each panel of the expansive quilt—a part of the NAMES Project foundation conceived and established by gay activist Cleve Jones—tells the story of an HIV/AIDS victim and his or her family, friends and loved ones.
Knowledge of the quilt spread across the country resulting in a huge public response. Since its conception in 1985, the quilt has increased to over 48,000 three inch by six inch panels and raised over $3 million for institutions working to halt the spread of HIV/AIDS.
“There are stories like the ones I’ve shared about Greg and Cory behind every one of the 24 quilt panels here, of the more than 48,000 panels that did not make their way here, and of the more than 39 million people around the world who have died of AIDS,” said Pols. “But no matter how tired or overworked we are, we can always do something, even if that’s only to be open.”
College hosts Maine students
For thousands of high-school seniors in Maine, fall heralds the beginning of the college application process. This past week, Bowdoin opened its campus to 80 local students and their families to visit and explore the opportunities offered by the College.
The event, colloquially called “Maine Day,” was staffed in part by student volunteers from admissions, such as Madeleine Livingston ’16 and Hallie Bates ’15.
“I organized the groups of students who were around during the transitional parts of Maine Day—so greeting families, directing families, leading them from place to place, answering any questions that they might have,” said Livingston ’16.
The day began with a welcome ceremony featuring a speech by President Barry Mills. Visitors were then encouraged to attend classes, have a meal in Thorne Dining Hall and attend talks concerning Bowdoin’s financial aid policies.
“We don’t have a Vermont Day or a Utah Day, but the College has a very important relationship with its home state. We do go out of our way to post a day for Maine students and their families and give them a chance to go to class, meet students and faculty and hear about admission and financial aid,” said Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Scott Meiklejohn.
“Part of the purpose of this is to continue reaching out and educating students and parents about the fact that we do have great financial aid and that we are interested in our home state,” he added.
Despite programs intended to make Bowdoin more accessible to Maine students, there has been a downward trend in the number of applications received from in-state applicants. While in 2013 Bowdoin received 424 applications, this year the number is down to 386. Nevertheless the number of admits did not change (73 students both years), and 46 Mainers matriculated into the Class of 2018, as opposed to 48 for the Class of 2017. These changes may be the result of Maine high school graduation rates, which have been steadily dropping over the past few years.
“We peaked two or three years ago where we had slightly over 500 applicants. Then, it was 460-something, and then it was 420-something, and this year was 380-something. And so you’re seeing on a percentage basis a pretty meaningful decline in the number of applications,” said Meiklejohn. “And so we’re watching that really closely.”
Maine Day is also a great way for Maine students, who may be considering other schools, to fully experience a school so close to home. Reed Fernandez ’17 attended Maine Day while in high school and said that the event helped assuage his hesitation in applying to a school so close to home.
“I would say that [Maine Day] made it more approachable—if that’s a word you can use to describe a college,” said Fernandez. “Staying close to home shouldn’t affect anything. Once I threw that out, it turned into a positive thing because Maine has so much to offer. Once I saw the campus and realized that Bowdoin had the most to offer to me, I didn’t really care where it was, I just wanted to come.”
Beyond the waitlists, Children’s Center serves youngest in community
You’ve seen them around. Whether in a red wagon rolling across the Quad, or in a neat single file line at the Arctic Museum, the toddlers and infants in Bowdoin Children’s Center programs are hard to miss.
When the Center opened 25 years ago, it was stationed in a trailer, according to Associate Director Anne Brooks. Later, the Center moved to the yellow house on 4 South Street.
“I believe that when we were [located in the yellow house], we were only open to preschool children,” she said.
The current facility on South Street was built 11 years ago, and has allowed the Center to accommodate a greater number of children and better serve families. Today, the Center offers care from birth through age five, and according to its website, can serve 43 children at any one time.
The Center is owned and run by the College, with an operating budget comprised of tuition paid by parents and additional money provided by Bowdoin.
Tuition costs vary from $400 to $1,000 per month, depending on a child’s age and the number of hours per week spent at the Center.
The Center does not offer financial aid for families who cannot afford its tuition.
“We have done extensive research about the market rate value of full time child care for birth through age five in the Brunswick area,” wrote Brooks in an email to the Orient. “We have a good understanding of what the tuition trends are and our rates are not higher than those you would find at other centers in the area. In fact, they are lower.”
Nearly all of the children enrolled at the Center are the offspring of current Bowdoin faculty and staff. At the moment, there are two waitlists: one for Bowdoin families and one for community families who have no employment connection to the College.
“When we have an opening, we go through the Bowdoin families first...and offer them the spot. If they all turn it down, we then go to the community waitlist,” said Brooks.
Kate Stern, the director of the Resource Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity, has three-year-old twins enrolled in the Center.
“My two boys love going,” she said. “I’m home on Mondays with them, and this Monday, they were begging, ‘Can we go to school?’ They love their teachers, their friends, what they get to do.”
As a parent, Stern said she is pleased that the Center takes advantage of Bowdoin’s campus to offer a richer experience for all students involved.
“Last week, they got to visit the museum and [look at] art and play on the museum steps,” Stern said.
She noted that sometimes children are taken to the top of Coles Tower to look over Brunswick.Nicole Smith ’16, who worked at the Center last year, said that problems often arose with both communication and organization.
“I think the staff struggled to keep things consistent and organized, and sometimes I thought they were a little too strict,” Smith said. “For me, working with the young kids was often the highlight of my day, but working with the faculty [at the Center] got pretty tricky sometimes.”
Brooks said she attributed any difficulties to the shift in management that occurred two years ago. The Center was forced to abandon certain outdated practices in order to be reaccredited, but Brooks declined to give specifics.
“The College understood that we were at risk for not being reaccredited, and so that caused a push for a change, and for new administration,” said Brooks.
The Center works to constantly maintain the highest quality care possible, according to Brooks.
“Bowdoin College is the gold standard, and we should be too,” said Brooks. “We should be proud of the child care that we offer. We are going to be the best in the state, if we can.”
The Center also provides opportunities for Bowdoin students in psychology courses. According to its website, students in Infant and Child Development—a 2000-level psychology course—can work as interns and observe education at the Center two hours each week.
Students explore Jewish roots on Birthright
Spiritual life for many Jewish students at Bowdoin is limited to Hillel-sponsored Passover events and Yom Kippur services in Daggett Lounge. However, over breaks, many students go on Birthright trips, which are organized by Taglit Birthright Israel, a non-profit organization that sends nearly 40,000 young, Jewish adults to Israel each year.
The program is designed to allow Jewish youth ages 18 to 26 to explore their connection to the Jewish faith and visit tourist destinations in Israel.
Birthright applicants are subject to strict eligibility requirements and those wishing to make the trip must be able to demonstrate that they have at least one Jewish parent or show proof of their conversion to Judaism. These stipulations are designed to prevent those without a real and legitimate interest from taking advantage of trip, for which costs are minimal—close to free.
BSG Update: BSG discusses Saturday pep rally, active bystander training
Bowdoin Student Government (BSG) met this Wednesday, primarily to review the progress of previously approved mandates before departure for Thanksgiving break next week.
Vice President for Academic Affairs Jordan Goldberg ’14 discussed an event occurring on campus last night called “Difference at Bowdoin.”
The event featured two guest speakers, Jeff Cuartas ’14 and H. Roy Partridge, a visiting professor of sociology, and examined difference and diversity on Bowdoin’s campus. Goldberg also noted the success of the ‘Food for Thought’ talks held this past Monday in the Hawthorne-Longfellow Library.
Students respond to Colby’s tobacco ban
After a year and a half of transition, Colby has officially gone entirely tobacco free.
Last year represented the first step of Colby’s transition to a smoke-free campus. During the 2012-2013 academic year, students and faculty were still permitted to light up in any of three designated smoking areas. However, as of October 1, the use of tobacco is banned on campus.
Bowdoin implemented a number of similar practices in 2002 intended to reduce smoking on campus. The College prohibits smoking inside college buildings, residence halls and vehicles. The ban extends 50 feet from the building entrances of College property as well as the athletic fields. The policy is designed to bring Bowdoin into compliance with Maine’s Workplace Smoking Act of 1985, and Maine’s Act to Protect Maine Citizens from the Effects of Environmental Tobacco Smoke.
Pacelli ’98 replaces Hazlett as senior associate dean
This year, Tim Foster and the Office of Student Affairs welcome the new Senior Associate Dean of Student Affairs Kimberly Pacelli ’98. She will replace Margaret Hazlett, who left the College in June.
Bowdoin is familiar territory for Pacelli, an alumna who earned her master’s degree in education from Harvard in 2003. That same year she returned to Bowdoin as the director of Residential Life, a position she held until 2008. After earning her J.D. at the University of Maine School of Law, Pacelli spent the 2012-2013 academic year working at Harvard College as an associate dean of student life.
“I sat in a central place in a system that was very much decentralized. I oversaw all of the housing events that were going on from house-to-house, and then I was also working on a project to revitalize and renovate all of the undergraduate housing,” said Pacelli.
Softball ends streak, clinches playoff berth
The softball team swept a three-game series against Bates last weekend to clinch a NESCAC playoff spot. As the second seed from the NESCAC East Division, Bowdoin earned a spot among the four teams moving on to the NESCAC Championships. The team pushed its consecutive win record to 12 with the sweep against Bates, and beat Husson on Sunday in the first game of its doubleheader. The Polar Bears lost the second game, ending their undefeated stretch at 13 games.
“Our goal was to make the tournament; to do that, you have to be either first or second, and we were able to achieve that,” said Head Coach Ryan Sullivan. “Other teams will be wrapping up with NESCAC play this weekend, so it’s great to be able to go and play that extra weekend.”
On Sunday, although the women were able to take Husson 12-5 in the opener, they were unable to keep up their momentum, losing 5-0 in the second game.
Women’s rugby falls in first round of D-II tournament
The women’s rugby team suffered a first round defeat in the USA Rugby Division-II Championship Last weekend at home. The Polar Bears lost 36-21 to the American International College (AIC) Yellow Jackets, and were eliminated from the championships. However, they will still participate in their traditional spring round-robin tournaments with local colleges and universities.
Despite the unfortunate result, head coach MaryBeth Mathews said she was pleased with the Polar Bears’ performance throughout the game, as well as the progress they made over in the season.
“It was a fantastic game and I’m really proud of the team, because when they played to the game plan, they performed brilliantly,” said Mathews. “The women on the field gained a great amount of experience while on tour, and after only two short weeks, put a lot together, worked hard, and played beautifully.”
Men's track nabs eighth at D-III New England Championships while breaking meet record
This weekend at Bates, the men’s track and field team took eighth place in a 21-team competition featuring the stoutest D-III track and field competitors New England has to offer.
The team walked away with a new meet record and plenty of strong performances despite a relatively weak overall showing.
“We had some great performances on the track, and some of our guys came through at a really high level,” said Head Coach Peter Slovenski. “The distance medley was a come-from-behind first place, and [junior] Coby Horowitz, who was seeded second in the mile, took first.”
Collins ’15 is invited to join prestigious U.S. National Polo Association
Sophomore Matthew Collins was recently chosen to join the elite ranks of the United States Polo Association (USPA), the national governing body for the sport of polo in the U.S. Polo, one of the oldest sports in the world, is played on horseback and involves the cooperation of four individuals per team. The goal of the game is to score points on the opposing team using long-handled mallets. Collins, who grew up on a farm in Maine, spent much of his time as a boy learning how to ride on the fields where he lived. “I always rode, growing up on my farm and riding on the trail roads,” said Collins. “Then I began taking polo lessons at one of the schools in the area. After that, I joined the Baltimore Boys Polo Club, where I started playing on the high school team, and it just took off from there.”
Men's track takes second at Maine State Meet behind Bates
At the Maine State Meet last Saturday, the men’s track and field team came up short in its quest to defend its 2012 title at the University of Southern Maine. Bates finished in first with 207 points while the Polar Bears tallied just 139. “Going into the meet we were considered the underdogs, and while we met that expectation, we didn’t really reach our goal of winning,” said captain David Bean ’13. “Our goal from Day One was to beat Bates, even though they were seeded above us,” added fellow captain Matt Gamache ’13.
Men’s track to face heavily talented field at State Meet
This past weekend, the men’s indoor track team competed against eight other schools at the Wesleyan Invitational. Because the meet featured non-scoring events, the Polar Bears were relieved from the stress of competition to focus more on personal goals before the upcoming Maine State Meet. “Just before the state meet, it helps to have a meet where we can concentrate on individual event performances and training, and not doubling and tripling people up for points,” said Head Coach Peter Slovenski.
