Welcome, Alumni, Families and Friends!

The Bates experience is transformative and unforgettable for alumni, fostering lifelong relationships and exploration. Batesies emerge equipped to make intentional decisions about their work, selves, and how the two relate. Even after they’ve left campus, alumni will always have a home at Bates.

The college and alumni volunteers work together to promote Bates pride, professional development opportunities, and lifelong connections. Learn more about the many ways to stay engaged with Bates and fellow Bobcats, below.
