Commencement 2024: Family Update

Greetings from campus, Bates Class of 2024 Families – 

The 158th Commencement of Bates College is just a few short months away! There will be a number of updates ahead of Sunday, May 26, 2024, and we’ll be sending you all the latest information along the way.

  • The schedule of events for the weekend is now available, along with a helpful FAQ page. Both the schedule and FAQ will continue to be updated throughout the spring.
  • Your senior has received information on cap and gown orders, which must be placed by Friday, March 22. Please encourage your Bobcat to meet this deadline.
  • Get ready to celebrate by downloading Bobcat lawn signs, or be one of the first to offer your well wishes for your grad and the Class of 2024.
  • If you have a co-parent who did not receive this update, they can update their contact information now to make sure they receive the most up-to-date information from our team.

We look forward to providing you with Commencement updates over the next few months, and to celebrating with you and your grad this spring!

With best regards,
The Bates Parent Team
