Far From Home: The International Bates Student Experience

Bates provides a world-class interactive, integrated program for the many students who comprise its international community. Join us for a conversation with a panel of international students, moderated by Scott Alexander, Director of International Recruitment and James Reese, Associate Dean of Students and International Student advisor.

Bursting the “Bubble:” Engaging with the Local Community

Hear from the leaders of the nationally renowned Harward Center for Community Partnerships and current students, as they explain how they weave together campus and community to create lasting change both on and off campus.

Emancipating Potential: The Bates Student Experience

Bates students are known for their openness and engagement. Hear from current students about why they chose Bates and how Bates has supported their growth through their educational journey.

The Power of Alignment: Purposeful Work at Bates and Beyond

Aligning who you are with what you do is at the heart of the Bates experience. Find out how the Purposeful Work program facilitates this process as students maximize their time in and out of the classroom, find meaning, and launch careers after Bates. During the session, you’ll also have the opportunity to test drive our philosophy by reflecting on your own sense of alignment!

Work Hard, Play Hard: The Scholar-Athlete Bobcat Experience

Meet a panel of coaches and student athletes as they lead us in a discussion on resources for athletes, time management, and how being a Bobcat enriches the student experience both on and off the field.
