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.)
- At Bates, we offer our Family Orientation sessions as webinars after Arrival Day so all families can access this important content. Explore our offerings and sign up now. All orientation webinars are recorded and posted 24-72 hours after the conclusion of the event.
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
