Ask a Student

Meet Our Students

Students work in the Office of Admission in various capacities, including leading campus tours, co-hosting admission and financial aid information sessions, and more. They represent a wide cohort of majors, activities, and hometowns. We encourage you to take a moment to peruse their profiles, and while you scroll, check out our Spotify playlists curated by Kian Moaledj ’23.

Students are eager to answer your questions, so please reach out to our students at askastudent@bates.edu. If you would like to speak with a specific student, please share their name in your email.

For specific questions about admission and financial aid, please contact your admission regional representative.
