We are ever true to Brown...

'Cause we love our college dear; no matter where we go, we are ready for a cheer. The best university on the planet, and beautiful to look at too.

We did a student led tour of Brown University and it was really informative and fun. We had a great guide who told us a lot about the University, and a lot of things that you would not read in a book so it gave you a real insight to being a student here. If you are wanting to have... More

We took a driving tour of this campus - it is simply beautiful. Old stately buildings and winding streets. A must see if you're traveling to Providence.

I toured Brown with a former student. While some facilities are in need of updating, it's a beautiful, sprawling, urban campus. The surrounding neighborhood is stunning, and there is easy access to downtown Providence.

Brown is located on top of the hill and is very well blended in with the community and the neighboring schools.
