3.0

WHAT I LIKED

The professors are incredible and I like the type of community a small school creates.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The facilities aren’t always great, not the older ones at least, and even though the dining hall is highly ranked I don’t think it’s very good.

3.0

WHAT I LIKED

I like the location of Bates college and its size.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the information given by tour guides and on the websites can be a little misleading. There is not a great amount of diversity at Bates and very little to no nightlife in the town.
