Jonathan T. Mellen, from Farmington, Maine “I guess the one thing that I would say that is really spectacular about this school is the fact that we are having this luncheon right now. The students here are just a random sampling of the school and yet we’re able to meet with the trustees of the college. This is kind of a theme that has existed throughout my time at Bates: As a student, I’ve gone to professors’ homes for meals and I’ve met with the administrators and deans of the college. I think that it has really prepared me well for the future in not being intimidated by the people who are assisting us, but rather to be more in conversation with them.”
