Does any of you have an idea of when and how are we going to get them?
I can't wait to use them. You know, they are required when we want to access some pages on the Bates site.

    Yeah, you won't get that until you get on-campus during orientation in the fall. Its kind of lame that they do that because you can't check your e-mail or sign up for facebook until you get on campus. But if there are some restricted things that you want to see like floor plans, just pm with your e-mail address and I can send it to you.

    I got my username and password, but no email. Damn, I wanted a facebook.

    Haha, I have a Lehigh facebook, but I want my email so I can change it to a Bates one... so that people will stop going "Wait... I thought you decided to go to Bates, not Lehigh..."

    maybe if we all started harassing the kind people at bates they'd get together and give us email access?
  • ilikenoodlesilikenoodles Registered User Posts: 168 Junior Member
    I'm up for it.

    At least you people have the username and passwords, I'm still waiting for the package to get here. Why wait till September to give us our emails anyway?
  • becchalkbecchalk Registered User Posts: 253 Junior Member
    Wait, they're waiting til SEPTEMBER?
  • ohohjanedoeohohjanedoe Registered User Posts: 26 New Member
    Yup :/ According to the website, we get them when we arrive on campus. y0bb, the email to the intels was completely horrible!!! And I can't believe that we still haven't gotten ANYTHING!
  • becchalkbecchalk Registered User Posts: 253 Junior Member
    That can't be, because it says in my packet that when I'm assigned a roommate, I'll be given her Bates email address...
  • ohohjanedoeohohjanedoe Registered User Posts: 26 New Member
    Weird. I don't know then, sorry. I just assumed from this http://www.bates.edu/newstudents.xml, but it could be outdated, because it's class of '09 info.

    Don't freak out, Bates just likes to keep an eye on who goes there. Don't get me wrong the college is extremely friendly, but they like to keep the community close and personal, which probably is why they don't give the email accounts out until the fall. The wait until matriculation is tough but worth it
  • y0bby0bb Registered User Posts: 20 New Member
    ohohjanedoe, I agree. The email was about as unhelpful as they come. 'ten days to two weeks' means that the earliest we'll get that stupid package is the 30th (email was sent on the 20th).

    Have I mentioned that I hate waiting?
  • RamonaRamona Registered User Posts: 31 Junior Member
    Should I be even more impatient considering I didn't even get that mail? Strange. Anyway, I wasn't expecting the package to arrive earlier than the end of May, beginning of June. Did that e-mail say anything interesting that I shouldn't have missed?
  • ohohjanedoeohohjanedoe Registered User Posts: 26 New Member
    I'll PM it to you if you'd like. Nothing helpful about booking flight dates etc.; I just became more confused.
