International Student Orientation

All incoming Bates students receive an extensive orientation upon arrival that will introduce you to campus and community, academics and life-at-Bates, and important information about higher education and the liberal arts that will help guide your time at Bates and beyond. In addition, international students and their accompanying parents receive information and orientation specific to transitioning to life in the US, on a US-campus. Sessions happening before classes begin are listed below. You will be contacted directly with information about additional events.
