Latest Commencement Details – March 31, 2021

Dear Class of 2021 Families,

We are delighted that Bates continues to plan for an in-person celebration of our seniors on Thursday, May 27. Here are the updates we have for you today:

  • Please remind your senior to order their cap and gown by April 5 using a link provided to them earlier this month. There is no charge to seniors for the cap and gown.
  • Ticketing for Commencement has not yet opened. When a specific date and process for guest ticketing is announced, that information will be emailed to seniors and their families and will be listed on the Commencement FAQ.
  • Want to share your pride in your Bates senior? Visit the Facebook profile picture page, enter “Bates College” in the search bar, and select a “proud of my Bates grad” frame.

We will continue to update you on Commencement and about events for families of seniors throughout the coming months. You may also wish to bookmark the Commencement site and check it regularly.

Best regards,
The Bates Parent Team
