Commencement 2023 Reminders

Hello, Bates Class of 2023 Families –

Just 76 days to go until Commencement, and we have a few reminders for you:

  • Parents, family members, and loved ones are invited to participate in Baccalaureate. Read more here about this Bates tradition and how to submit a blessing card for your graduate.
  • Seniors have received reminders about two important deadlines: Seniors must request their cap and gown by this Friday, March 17, and seniors must update their contact data by April 2. Please encourage your seniors to meet these deadlines.
  • Getting excited about the big weekend? Download some Bobcat lawn signs like the sample below to honor your grad and show your Bates pride.

We can’t wait to see many of you on campus for the big day!

With best regards,
The Bates Parent Team
