Bowdoin's student body is vibrant and intellectually engaged. Admission to Bowdoin is highly selective.

Bowdoin embraces diversity in all forms, and the College is home to talented students—including first-generation college students—with a variety of racial, ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds; religious beliefs; and gender identities, among other factors. The Class of 2022 at Bowdoin College is, by several measures, the most culturally diverse and socioeconomically representative class in the College's history. The College enrolls approximately 1,800 students representing 50 states and two US territories, and 42 foreign countries. Fifty percent of the Class of 2022 receives financial aid at Bowdoin; 35 percent are students of color; and 14 percent are members of the first generation of their family to attend college.
