Welcome, Alumni, Families and Friends!

The Bates experience is transformative and unforgettable for alumni, fostering lifelong relationships and exploration. Batesies emerge equipped to make intentional decisions about their work, selves, and how the two relate. Even after they’ve left campus, alumni will always have a home at Bates.

The college and alumni volunteers work together to promote Bates pride, professional development opportunities, and lifelong connections. Learn more about the many ways to stay engaged with Bates and fellow Bobcats, below.

Please note: To support the college’s efforts to keep our campus healthy and safe, our team is currently working remotely. Our working hours are still 8am to 4:30pm EDT. Any emails received will be responded to within one business day. We are also happy to meet with you—whether via Zoom or over the phone —within those times. Our toll-free line (1-888-522-8371) is monitored regularly.


Over 2,200 alumni volunteer their time, talent, and resources to the college. Join us in strengthening alumni relationships and serving the entire Bates community!
