Last month, the Orient released this semester’s iteration of the Bowdoin Orient Student Survey (BOSS). The survey asked students about their opinions on a variety of topics pertaining to campus life and the College community. In total, 406 students responded to the survey, which represents roughly 22 percent of the student body.
College policy surrounding its Covid-19 pandemic management has shifted dramatically over the past several months. In his August 3 email to the Bowdoin community, President Rose announced the outright discontinuation of many of the College’s previous Covid policies, including masking requirements in classrooms and mandatory, twice-weekly PCR testing.
The results are in! After a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Orient conducted its third first year survey, asking members of the Class of 2026 about their identities, experiences and expectations for Bowdoin.
On March 11, the College announced all classes would move online, and all students must move out by March 18 to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Find the Orient’s coverage of the College’s evolving response to the virus here.
