Resources and events just for new Bates families

Hello, Bates Class of 2027 families – 

Just four weeks until Arrival Day! As we come into this phase of summer, here are some resources and reminders for you:

  • We’ve created an Arrival Day FAQ just for family members. This resource includes an overview of the schedule on August 31 for families as well as some insider packing tips. We’ll continue to add updates throughout the month. 
  • Our August virtual parent-to-parent events are underway, and it’s not too late to register before the series wraps up on August 8. These are excellent opportunities to hear from current Bates families. (Sorry – these sessions are not recorded.)

Finally, please remind your student to check their Bates email regularly. Registration for the rest of their fall courses opened on August 2 and closes on August 8 at 11:59 pm Eastern, and personal registration consultants are reaching out to all incoming students at their Bates email addresses to answer questions about choosing fall courses. 

Best from campus,
The Bates Parent Team
