On some sunny March days, wrote Charles Dickens, it feels like “summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”

Dickens nailed the weather, but the balance escaped his attention: Bates is a place of great expectations, where citizens light triumphant fires, connect over pizza and physics, and explore the past and present onstage, on the field, and in the archives.

Whether it’s planned or spontaneous, we hope you’re game to take a look back with us at the last 30 days.
