Fellows Life at JAARS


Fellows rent furnished apartments at the JAARS Center. Usually these are shared, and each person has their own room.


The JAARS Center is located about 6 miles from Waxhaw, North Carolina, and 10 miles from Lancaster, South Carolina. While a car is not required for JAARS Fellows, most people find it helpful to bring their own car.


With the exception of occasional meals during outings and life hacks, fellows are responsible for their own meals. To encourage community, fellows are asked to eat meals together often. Campus housing is equipped with a kitchen that includes pots, pans, dishes, and utensils.
