Hey all. Sorry for the lack of posts the past week. It has been pretty hectic around here with family coming and going and all the holiday festivities. I hope the holidays have treated you all well.
We have reached the middle point of the winter break. Vacation began about 2 weeks ago and ends in 2 weeks. I am enjoying my time at home but am also getting exciting to return to Bates for second semester.
No personal Bates stories to report since I’m not on campus but here is some Bates news to keep you up to date with everything going on both on and off the college campus:
Earlier this month there was a banquet held in honor of Olympic Gold medalist Andrew Byrnes (’05). Byrnes is the first Batesie to win an olympic gold medal. Check out my post about it from this past summer here. Read more about the banquet on the Bates website here.
Bates’ Brook Quimby Debate Team came in 16th (out of 85 teams) at an international competition at Cambridge University. 6 Batesies represented the college in the debates. Bates finished 2nd among U.S. colleges. Read more about it here.
Until next time…
