Join us on campus!


Mount David Summit

Join us on Friday, March 29, 2019 for the Mount David Summit, Bates’ annual campus-wide celebration of student academic achievement. Through a day of open programming, the Summit highlights undergraduate research; student creative work in art, dance, theater, music and film/video; projects conducted in the context of academic courses; and community-engaged research. If you are interested in getting a true sense of the rich intellectual life of our students, we encourage you to join us on campus to attend lectures, poster presentations, and performances. Admission staff will be available throughout the day and will join you for lunch.


If you would like to attend a campus tour or information session on this day, please register here.
