Events for Incoming Families

Greetings, Class of 2025 families, and welcome to the Bates community!

We know many states, including Maine, have relaxed their public health guidelines. We look forward to resuming in-person regional and campus events soon.

That said, we didn’t want to wait for conditions to change before we confirmed dates and hosts for our welcome events. We have also found that virtual events allow more families to participate from across the United States and around the world. 

We hope you will join us for online offerings through the summer of 2021.

  • Our Virtual Family Welcome Series gatherings have been added to the parents and families event calendar. Registration links are provided via email.
  • We will host an informational webinar for Class of 2025 families and their students on Thursday, July 20 at 8pm Eastern. Registration will open via email, and this event will be recorded for those who cannot attend at the scheduled time.
  • Because fall arrival and campus health protocols have not been set as of June 30, we are moving forward with hosting a family orientation series online this year as well. You’ll receive email invitations for three panel presentations, to be held between Sept. 2-12. These sessions will be recorded for those who would like to view them later.

We look forward to meeting you online soon – and to seeing you in person before long!
