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.

Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or
go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused ..
Any tips? Many thanks!

It's a method I wouldn't spend hours a day doing but it is something if you are new to
network marketing on the internet I would add to your weekly
checklist of advertising stratagies. If they don't close for you, they will make the
prospect contact you to get sponsored into your business.
that is being taught in the network marketing industry.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content
I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up
all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen?
I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Hence, to have a healthy sexual life and experience pleasure every time while indulging in the sexual activity, you can take generic: Viagra as your aid.

This is sometimes why many name brand medication tablets are scored for easy
breaking in two or more equal pieces. In addition, you can also forfeit the warranty attached to your printer.
Note that with svchost errors you dont have to take any
inconvertible measures.
