Commons is the main dinning hall on campus. My friends and I will talk about some of our favorite meals to eat, and some small Bates traditions. One tradition is that students don't use the trays in commons, only carry plates. You will stick out if you go for the tray before grabbing a plate. Fun fact, every student has the same unlimited meal plan, which means, unlimited swipes in commons! We also have one of the biggest cereal walls out of all the New England schools.
