Campus Supports & Resources

Your wellbeing is the foundation on which your success is built. You are not alone. Your friends, your family, your teachers, and an array of counselors and advisers are ready to listen and help you through whatever you are facing. If you learn anything at Bates, please learn to ask for help. It is a sign of wisdom and strength.

As the paraphrase of a University president indicates, Bates College has a multitude of resources in place to help students when they may be having difficulty academically socially, or personally. The staff and faculty of Bates are here to help, no matter what you may be going through.
