GREAT DAY

This year’s Great Day to be a Bobcat was one for the record books!

An unprecedented 4,583 donors gave more than $1 million dollars to support Bates students and programs.

Thank you for showing that it’s ALWAYS a great day to be a Bobcat!


We love a parade, especially this one! Alumni showed their class spirit as they marched and danced through a crowd of cheering Bates alumni friends this morning on the Historic Quad and Alumni Walk.

VIRTUAL REUNION
June 12-13, 2020

We can’t gather on campus, but we can celebrate together online. Join us and re-visit (at a distance) everything you love about Bates and your fellow Bobcats.
