“We are proud of our 2020 graduates, who have persevered during the toughest of times,” said Dr. Lin Zhou, president of Bates Technical College. “While I know this is not the most preferred way to celebrate, we did not want to delay honoring our graduates as they embark on a new chapter in their lives. The entire faculty and staff applaud our students, and I invite everyone to join in the celebration.”

Bates Technical College is operating remotely, with limited labs on campus. We’re here to help you virtually. Learn more about our efforts to keep students and employees healthy and safe on the COVID-19 resource page.
