Founded in 1855, Bates College is a private liberal arts college with about 1,820 undergraduate students. It’s located in Lewiston, Maine, and is internationally recognized as a leading liberal arts college. Bates college values community engagement and an enriching academic experience, as there are 36 majors offered and a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio.

All activities, resources, and facilities are open to every member of the Bates community, and we have never allowed exclusive organizations such as fraternities and sororities.
