Wind Down Wednesdays

Wind Down Wednesdays are co-sponsored by the Office of Campus Life and by Bates student clubs and organizations. On certain Wednesday evenings (listed each semester) student groups may host a Wind Down Wednesday event in the Little Room in Chase Hall or the Underground in 280 College. The Office of Campus Life will provide a stipend to student groups to assist with event costs.

In addition, the Office of Campus Life independently sponsors several Wind Down Wednesday events per semester, open to all students on a first come, first serve basis with sign-ups in the Campus Life Office, Chase Hall 108.
