Club is one of the largest and most active of the Bates College
clubs. We represent some 130 International students coming from
over 40 countries all over the globe. Our role is to promote cross-cultural
awareness and understanding at Bates by spreading the wealth of
our diversity through activities like the annual International Dinner
and International Fair. We welcome all members of the Bates community
in the Club's activities.

members meet on a weekly-basis to share a delicious meal in Bates'
nationally recognized Commons, to share stories and jokes, and to
plan the activities of the Club. Just a few of those activities
include an International Dance night, when all Bates students are
invited to dance to musical pieces from around the globe, and an
International Dinner, where international students assume the role
of chefs and prepare various national dishes for the enjoyment of
all gourmets on campus. Furthermore, all first-year international
students are invited by Dean Reese to a free lobster bake and a
soccer game on the beaches of Maine. Of course, there are many,
many more events that the International Club organizes or co-sponsors
on campus each year.
