Short term, Baccalaureate, and more

Hello, Bates Class of 2022 Families –

Greetings from a quiet campus. As February break begins, we remind you that an overview about return testing protocols can be found here. Students have received additional information about this via Garnet Gateway.

The end of the semester is approaching, with Commencement not far behind. This is the first in a series of updates we will share throughout the spring to keep senior families informed:

  • Students received an update last week from the Registrar about Short Term. If your student has questions, please remind them to speak with their faculty advisor.
  • Baccalaureate offers special opportunities for families to offer reflections on the journey and accomplishments of their graduates. Consider submitting your thoughts and learn more about this Bates tradition. 
  • We encourage you to bookmark the Commencement site, which will be updated with additional details in the next few weeks. We will also continue to share information with families.
  • On February 28, seniors will receive instructions on how to order caps and gowns, so please remind them to watch for this first step in getting ready for Commencement.

With best regards,

The Bates Parent Team
