Reunion 2016

June 10–12

50th Reunion Class arrives on June 9.

Each year more than 1,000 Bates alumni and friends return to campus for a Reunion Weekend packed with fun, memory-making activities, including a lobster bake, fireworks, the Alumni Parade, class dinner, faculty lectures, Outing Club trips and the Camp Bates children’s program. We hope you can join! (Registration opens February 22.)

We’re here to help. If you have any questions, please contact us at reunion@bates.edu or 207-786-6487.
