Updates and upcoming invitation – June 17, 2021

Hello, Incoming Bates Families –

We hope your summer is off to a good start and that you are looking ahead with excitement to Bates in the fall. We wanted to share a few updates:

  • Watch for an invitation next week to our Family Summer Welcome Series. These virtual events will be loosely organized by region to help you meet other incoming families who may live near you. That said, please feel free to register for the event that works best for your schedule. 
  • Students are receiving weekly email updates from the First-Year Orientation team. The first set of important forms are due by July 1, including AESOP applications and the housing/roommate survey. Please make sure your student regularly checks both Garnet Gateway and their Bates email address.
  • We encourage you to browse our Parent & Families site to help you support your student in getting ready for Bates. Let us know if there are resources we can add!

Best regards,
The Bates Parent Team
