Rigor, creativity drive Short Term

Bates’ Short Term has come a long way since it was established 40 years ago. This five-week spring session started out as an efficiency measure. It enabled Bates to get more use from its facilities, and enabled students to complete the Bates education in three years instead of four, if they so desired. (For more about the history of Short Term, see the article “May 1966: The first Short Term.”)
