Campus Life

Reflecting the Bates Institutional Plan, Campus Life plays an integral role in the education of the whole person, a “process through which students become aware of their interests, community, and purpose in the world.” We deepen the student experience by providing resources and opportunities to explore interests through involvement in student clubs and organizations, social events and programs, skill building workshops, and employment opportunities. An equity and inclusion lens is foundational to our work – we actively aspire to dismantle -isms and -phobias, and partner with students to do the same in their areas of influence.

We are located at Chase Hall 108 (56 Campus Avenue, Lewiston, ME 04240). During the academic year, our office is staffed 9am through 6pm to assist with any club expenditure needs or reimbursement requests, to use the campus life credit card, for any support or advising regarding student clubs and organizations, or just to have a chat! In addition, we will be holding drop-in hours in Commons on Tuesdays from 12:00-1:30 pm and in the OIE on Fridays from 3:00-4:30 pm.

If we are able to further support you outside of those hours, please be in touch and we are happy to find a time to meet.
