Bates in the City

On one day each year, Bates alumni around the world come together to meet, network and connect with Bobcat neighbors.

Join us for 45 minutes on Tuesday, October 13 to mingle and make meaningful new connections with fellow alums on Icebreaker, an online platform that provides guided conversation games. We hope you’ll join us for a round or two (on Icebreaker!).
