Band ambassadors to residential colleges
The purpose of the BARC program is to serve as a communicative liaison between colleges and Racer Band regarding scheduling conflicts during Great Beginnings and to build better relationships with incoming Racer Band freshman. Since participation in Racer Band requires six days of camp for rehearsal prior to school, incoming freshman student miss many of the Great Beginnings sessions foundational for the college career. We will equip you with the information missed. Our goal is to promote community and build friendships across campus as well as within Racer Band. Also, we just love to have fun!
