Welcome, New Bates Students!

The Student Affairs team, along with current Bates students, staff, and faculty, look forward to welcoming our newest students to the Bates community. Due to the global pandemic, a first-year arrival date has not yet been selected. Please stay attuned to college announcements throughout the summer for more information about First-Year Orientation. In addition, you will receive more information about the Garnet Gateway and other Orientation details in early June.
