The College Key
The purpose of The College Key is to recognize outstanding Bates men and women, to encourage and to recognize student academic and extracurricular achievement; to support academics, athletics, and student life; to provide student aid including scholarships and other kinds of financial assistance, to be a resource for student internships, to support campus improvements, and to contribute to the general welfare of the college.
Members of The College Key include seniors and a small number of juniors who are elected to the Key by virtue of their leadership in academic and extra-curricular work. Alumni are elected each year as well, by virtue of their volunteer work for the college. Any Bates alumnus can nominate a fellow alumnus for membership in The College Key.
Among its many members, The College Key is proud to include such Bates luminaries as the late former Secretary of State Ed Muskie ’36, Dean of the Faculty Pam Baker ’69 and Professor Marcus Bruce ’77, novelist Lisa Genova ’92, poet Elsbeth Hobbs ’51, and television journalist Bryant Gumbel ’70.
