Bates College facts and figures - more on Bates 2010 Profile


A Bates education fosters intellectual inquiry and reflection, personal growth, and a commitment to the world beyond self. Bates offers students a challenging academic experience in a collaborative and supportive environment.

At Bates, students and faculty form a community of scholars who share a thirst for learning, drawing on the methods of the sciences, the patterns of logic and language, the study of societies and expression in the arts.

To ensure that students have had formal instruction at the college level in the methods and findings of the sciences and in quantitative analysis, Bates has a general education curriculum. This goal is met by taking three distinct courses that call for scientific reasoning, develop quantitative literacy, and provide a laboratory experience.

Campus Life

More than 110 recognized organizations, formed by students, allow Batesies to pursue their interests with kindred spirits. Some organizations’ roots reach deep into Bates’ history. The Robinson Players, for example, is one of the nation’s oldest student theater ensembles.

Outdoor recreation opportunities within minutes of campus include downhill and cross-country skiing, lake swimming and boating, and golf. Bates community members can borrow skis, boots, poles, snowshoes, toboggans, tents, packs, snowboards, skates and other outdoor equipment from the Outing Club.


With choices including 31 varsity intercollegiate teams, as well as athletic clubs and intramural leagues, students have many athletic opportunities at Bates.
Merrill Gymnasium, the hub of Bates Athletics, houses a 200-meter track; an eight-lane swimming pool, four tennis court, two racquetball courts, dance studios, and a variety of cardiovascular fitness equipment. Alumni Gymnasium contains facilities for basketball and volleyball.

There are playing fields for football, soccer, track, softball, and baseball, field hockey, and lacrosse. The Bates Squash Center features five international-sized courts. The Underhill Arena houses the ice rink and the Davis Fitness Center. Next to Underhill Arena is the Wallach Tennis Center.

Study Abroad

Opportunities to experience unfamiliar cultures begin in the first year with the Bates Fall Semester Abroad programs. Students undertake intensive language study, combined with four months of interdisciplinary courses driven by the particular characteristics of the host country.

In springtime, students can take part in off-campus programs that are part of Bates’ Short Term — a five-week semester distinguished by intensive educational offerings distinct from regular-semester courses.
