Campus Activities & Traditions (CAT)

Campus Activities & Traditions (CAT) is the student-led source of  campus wide events.

Campus Activities & Traditions (CAT) oversees and plans all-campus events and programs geared to meet the eclectic interests of Bates students and create an inclusive community. We plan a range of small & large scale events for the academic year, some of which include craft nights, 80s Weekend,  Winter Carnival, Big Prize Bingo, and the annual Fall Concert. We were happy to host Lil Yachty, Waka Floka Flame, & Bryce Vine as some of our past Fall Concert artists!

CAT is a programming board from the Bates community for the Bates community. We’d love to hear any and all suggestions/feedback that you might have, so feel free to reach out via our contact information below! We’re constantly working to grow and improve and hope that each academic year can be better than the last!
