Topic - Bates College

Bates College is a highly selective, private liberal arts college located in Lewiston, Maine, in the United States. The college was founded in 1855 by abolitionists. Bates College is one of the first colleges in the United States to be coeducational from establishment, and is also the oldest continuously operating coeducational institution in New England. Originally a Free Will Baptist institution, Bates is now a nonsectarian institution. As of 2011, Bates is the college with the highest tuition in the United States, but this measurement doesn't consider Bates' grants of financial aid, and "tuition" at Bates includes both room and board in contrast to the tuition at other schools on this government ranking. - Source: Wikipedia
