Campus Visits & Events
There is no better way to understand Bates College than by spending time on campus. During your visit, observe the day-to-day life of students here. Go to the library and see how students interact. Eat lunch in Commons. Sit down at any table and strike up a conversation. Review our Course Schedule and sit in on a class. Attend a concert, a lecture or a game. We can’t wait to see you on campus.
