Latest Commencement News – May 21, 2021

Dear Class of 2021 Families,

With less than a week to go to Commencement, we hope the information below will be helpful to you whether you are attending in person or watching the livestream:

  • If you are a ticketed guest, please double-check the timeline for each ceremony and our guest health and vaccination/testing guidelines. This will help you avoid any confusion around seating times and health protocols before you arrive.
  • Baccalaureate will be livestreamed this Sunday, May 23 at 11am Eastern. We encourage family, friends, and loved ones to register for this special Bates tradition.
  • There are no additional tickets available for Commencement, and because of the logistics involved in hosting two ceremonies, we ask that only ticketed guests visit campus on May 27. 

From the Commencement map to our recent Families of 2021 webinar, we continue to add resources to the Commencement website, so please check it often!

Best regards,
The Bates Parent Team
