OWLs

Orientation Week Leaders

Student Staff 2020


OWLs are students who are dedicated to making the First-Year Orientation Week warm, welcoming and fun! With support from the Office of Campus Life, we are dedicated to providing an environment that is informative, fosters social connection, and supports physical and emotional well-being for new students on campus.

Our team hosts a vast array of events to engage first-year students and help get them acquainted to campus. We also organize several experiences to give students a little taste of what the local Lewiston/Auburn community has in store for them!

OWLs are passionate about our school and are committed to helping each incoming student find confidence and excitement in their new Maine home.

We can’t wait to meet you! If you have any questions, feel free to email us at firstyearstudents@bates.edu! We’d be more than happy to help!
