Family Orientation Webinars

Orientation webinars offer family members of incoming Bates students an opportunity to get up to speed on their student’s transition to life on campus. Webinars are held before and after the beginning of the academic year so that as students pack for Arrival Day, participate in Orientation, and start classes and activities, families have timely information on supporting them and the many resources available to students during their time at Bates.

The full schedule of webinar dates will be released soon, so stay tuned!
