The Bates Scholar-Athlete Society highlights the College’s commitment to the scholar-athlete ideal. Each year the Society inducts graduating seniors who have compiled a 3.5 grade point average or have received a special nomination from faculty based on distinguished academic achievement in their junior and senior years. To be eligible for consideration, student-athletes must participate in varsity sports for at least three years. As well as honoring students as they graduate, alumni who distinguish themselves as scholars and athletes and subsequently in their careers, are also inducted at the annual ceremony. In addition, faculty members, coaches or staff members who have fostered the scholar-athlete ideal are recognized and join the Scholar-Athlete Society.
