Admitted Student Receptions at Bates

  • Friday, April 10, 2015

Spend a day on campus learning about Bates and helping to recruit your future classmates!

Are you already enrolled, or still deciding if Bates is right for you? Either way, we’d love to see you and your family at an Admitted Student Reception.

By devoting this all-day event to you and your parents, we can answer all of your questions and immerse you in the Bates experience. If you’re interested in tackling some early prep work for your senior thesis, or simply easing the transition from high school into college, the Admitted Student Receptions are there for you.
