• NO HATE NOVEMBER:

No Hate November is a month dedicated to remembering past bias incidents at Bowdoin and promoting an inclusive, respectful campus. Different panels and events happen throughout the semester with the help of several affinity and identity clubs on campus, cultivating with a keynote speaker at the end of the month. In past years, it has featured the “Hate Stops With Us” photo campaign, where students have expressed and displayed their solidarity with their peers who have experienced bias at Bowdoin and beyond. It also has featured various speakers and lectures, such as DeRay Mckesson ’07, a well-known political activist from Baltimore.

 

• SPRING GALA:

Each year, the BSG forms a committee to plan the Spring Gala, an all-student formal towards the end of the spring semester. Past themes have been Vintage Circus (2018), Mad Hatter (2017), and Starry Night (2016).

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

Have something to share with the Bowdoin community? Consider giving a Food For Thought talk. Held once a month in the Nixon Lounge of H-L, students are invited to come hear a peer speak about a topic that is important to them. Contact Chair of Academic Affairs, Nikki Tjin a Djie.

• TOWN HALL DISCUSSIONS

The world can be a mess sometimes, things can be happen that are jarring or warrant a larger discussion, and BSG is here to foster it by bringing folks together in Morrell Lounge of Smith Union with a microphone and any questions they may have.
