Parent Campus Update – Jan. 19, 2021

Hello, Bates Families – 

Earlier this morning, students received an update about returning to campus for the winter semester. Please read the full update here, and encourage your student to check Garnet Gateway to sign up for arrival testing, select Module C meal times, and access winter semester account statements.

We also share the following resources open to students during the extended break:

  • Our colleagues in Purposeful Work have numerous events scheduled throughout break. Please encourage your student to sign up for Handshake, where they can register for Purposeful Work events, apply for internships, set up an appointment with staff, and more. 
  • B-Well continues to provide daily virtual wellness and fitness offerings for students throughout break. 
  • The LGBTQAIP2+ Advisory Committee in the Office of Equity and Inclusion hosts weekly drop-in hours. If your student is interested in participating, encourage them to connect with

We hope you are staying healthy as we begin a new year.

Best regards,
The Bates Parent Team
