With almost two weeks of social distancing under my belt, I’m about one bad Zoom call away from talking to the walls. I’ve run the gamut of classic quarantine activities, from finally purging my wardrobe of nostalgic high school t-shirts to telling myself I have the personality to get into baking (wrong).

Mental Health

STRESS LESS program teaches everyday mindfulness

As midterm season approaches, Bowdoin can move at a frighteningly quick pace, and stress can weigh heavy on many students. A new program, STRESS LESS, hopes to combat this issue. Associate Director of Clinical and Emergency Services Shelley Roseboro and Assistant Director of Student Wellness Programs Kate Nicholson implemented the month-long mindfulness and stress reduction program earlier this month.

An amendment to the Bowdoin Student Government (BSG) election bylaws to remove Judicial Board (J-Board) oversight from the assembly’s elections passed by a unanimous vote at the BSG meeting on Wednesday.
