Bates College Info Snack

Bates College, officially known as the President and Trustees of Bates College or simply as Bates, is a private liberal arts college in Lewiston, Maine. It is equidistantly south of state capital Augusta and north of cultural hub Portland. Anchored by the Historic Quad, the campus of Bates totals 813 acres with a small urban campus and 33 off-site Victorian Houses distributed throughout the city. It maintains 600 acres of nature preserve known as the "Bates-Morse Mountain" near Campbell Island and a coastal center on Atkins Bay. With an annual enrollment of approximately 1,800 students, it is the smallest college in its athletic conference. As a result of its small student body, Bates retains selective admit rates and little to no transfer percentages. The nominal cost of attendance is considered very high with tuition frequently among the most expensive in the United States.
