Welcome, Parents and Families!

The resources below will help you plan a visit to Bates, get involved with the college, and remind your student where to go for answers.

We would like to welcome the families of the Class of 2023 to Bates. We hope to see you and your student at one of our Summer Welcome Receptions in the near future.
