Homecoming & Family Weekend


Back to Bates: Homecoming & Family Weekend 2018 is October 5–7! We look forward to seeing you!

The annual fall campus celebration features the largest a cappella concert of the year, home athletic contests, student presentations and faculty lectures, arts showcases, an all-campus barbecue, and the ever-popular Harvest Dinner.

More than 2,000 alumni, parents, and friends returned to campus for Back to Bates: Homecoming & Family Weekend in 2016. Please enjoy these Back to Bates 2016 images by Phyllis Graber Jensen/Bates College, Josh Kuckens/Bates College, and Max Huang ’18.
