Welcome, Alumni, Families and Friends!

Every Bobcat is unique—and so is their connection to Bates. Worldwide, there are more than 24,000 Batesies pursuing their dreams, making a difference, and giving back to their communities. Our alumni are united across generations by the time they spent here in Lewiston, and by the education that prepared them for great things.

Learn how you can connect with your fellow Bobcats and engage with Bates through events, professional networking, and volunteer opportunities.

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!
