Welcome, class of 2018. Now let’s go do something amazing.
We’re interested in people who work hard, take intellectual risks, believe that education isn’t confined to a classroom and get deeply involved in their community. So take a look around this site — it’s for you.
The work at Bates is rugged (and rewarding), but learning about our college is simple. You can either browse this site to learn more about Bates, or cut to the chase and schedule a tour and/or an overnight stay.
We invite you to join the entire Bates community for a campus tour, group information sessions, faculty and student panels, meet Bates students and try our delicious food during our Fall Open House on October 14. This is a great time to learn more about Bates academics and to have your many questions answered.
