Visit Bates

Engage With Us

There are many ways to get to know Bates. We offer a variety of experiences, both in-person and virtual, so that you can explore our campus wherever you are. Here are three types of experiences we encourage you to consider.

Move-In Day

The Class of 2023 arrives on campus. Students move into their new residences, attend meetings, eat lunch, pick up AESOP equipment, hear the President's Greeting on the Historic Quad, and say goodbye to their families.

Visit In-Person

We can’t wait to meet you! Join us for an in-person campus tour and information session. Spending time on campus is a great way to get to know Bates. During your visit, observe the day-to-day life of students. Bates offers in-person campus tours guided by a current student to provide greater insight on our campus and community.
