Bates College Student Government (BCSG) exists to provide voice and resources to student concerns. As part of this charge, it oversees, in conjunction with the support of the Office of Campus Life, all student clubs at Bates. BCSG works to further student interests at Bates to ensure an open, equitable, and accessible campus for all community members.
BCSG meetings are open to all Bates community members and occur every Wednesday at 7:00pm when classes are in session. Meetings take place in the Benjamin Mays Center, except for the first meeting of the year on 9/13, which will take place in Commons 221/222, and the meeting on 11/29, which will take place in Hirasawa Lounge, Chase Hall 203.
BCSG meetings provide a forum for students to voice concerns and support, allowing BCSG to engage in advocacy and articulate student interests to the administration and faculty.
