    You can guess at it. It's the first letter of your first name and the first seven letters of your last name, followed by @bates.edu


    It gets complicated if someone already has that email address. If so, the last letter is dropped and a number is substituted.

    Sooo...

    Say Brenda Glickstein is admitted. Her email address is

    bglickst@bates.edu

    unless someone else already has it, in which case it would be

    bglicks2@bates.edu

    and if someone has that

    bglicks3@bates.edu

    etc.

    The problem is that in order to register for facebook, you need to be able to access mail at your college email address. Right now I dont know how to do that.

    There's only one Batesie on thefacebook.com, class of 2009. He's a transfer from January. No new students there yet. Don't sweat it.
