Latest updates on Commencement 2022

Hello, Bates Class of 2022 Families –

The Commencement 2022 weekend schedule has been updated, and additional details will be included as we move through spring. 

Other updates for you today include:

  • The Commencement FAQ is a helpful resource for families as well as for students. New information is added regularly, so you may want to check this link frequently.
  • Baccalaureate will feature family reflections on the journey and accomplishments of this year’s graduates. The Multifaith Chaplaincy encourages you to submit your thoughts by April 4. 
  • Seniors have received instructions on how to order caps and gowns by the March 20 deadline. They have also been asked to update their contact information with the college by April 1. Thank you for any gentle reminders you can offer your seniors on these tasks!

89 days to go – we can’t wait to see many of you on campus for the big day!

With best regards,

The Bates Parent Team
