Bobcat Connection: March 23, 2021

Bates Alumni Business Directory

Bobcats love to support and uplift fellow alumni, especially during challenging times. To make that support easier, and to promote small businesses in Maine and around the world,we’ve created an alumni-owned business directory

We hope you will use this directory to support Bates alumni-owned businesses, help them grow, and celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit of our community.
