The goal of Junior Advisor/Residence Coordinator (JARC) programming is to offer residents a wide variety of exciting and engaging events within the residence hall, in the wider Bates campus, and in the surrounding community. Participating in these programs should help residents build a stronger connection with each other and create a positive climate within the residence.

Residence Life staff members will often plan small programs for their particular center or residence, but programs can also be run in conjunction with other staff members as part of a larger residential community. Residence Life staff members each have a small budget to help provide unique and relevant programs for their residents.

The Frye Street Union Coordinator is required to offer at least three (3) programs for their residents per semester, one (1) of which must fit an educational theme.
