Diana Furukawa Dear Reader, With Nick’s Bowdoin departure looming, we decided this week to review a beer just because the packaging looked pretty. As Nick’s housemate quite rightly put it: “such a sexy can; love the matte.” Indeed, old friend.
This afternoon, students will venture outside—binoculars in hand—for Bowdoin’s third annual Birdathon. The rules of the event are simple: Teams of five work to identify—either by sight or sound—as many bird species as possible over the course two hours.

Caroline Carter I know that for many students at Bowdoin, the onset of spring’s warm weather is welcomed with open arms. For others (namely, myself), the warm weather is not so welcome. In Maine, warm weather and insect life come hand-in-hand, and there are few things I find more bothersome than insects.

International students face unique difficulties at Bowdoin, which enrolls the fewest non US citizens in the NESCAC, such as navigating career opportunities, advisors and campus resources that don’t fully understand their experiences and a foreign social culture.
Sophie Washington I have a cheap Richard Prince print on my dorm-room wall from his Untitled (Fashion) series. I downloaded the image from the internet and turned it into a poster. (I figured this would be within bounds based on Prince’s own relationship with appropriating others’ work.) I like the image because it’s simple and suggests our own complicity in consumer culture by appropriating what was originally a magazine ad.
Alex Westfall As Ivies quickly approaches, dear Reader, a budget beer was very much in the cards for this week’s issue of Tapped Out. And in the end, the choice was obvious. Our beer is regularly available in the town of Brunswick and comes in at less than a dollar per can; yet, it is rarely (if ever) spotted at our campus parties and in our dorm rooms.
