Video: Looking back, Emily Howe '11 reflects on meeting Bates coaches

Through Commencement, we’ll offer brief videos of Bates seniors reflecting on their Bates experience.

The seniors’ comments come from a recent Trustee luncheon, where each year the Bates seniors in attendance respond to President Elaine Tuttle Hansen’s invitation to offer impromptu comments.
