Every Memorial Day (holiday) is known to many of Brown University's students as "Graduation Day," when they march up "College Hill" and through the University's historically-famous, large and beautiful wrought-iron gates onto the University "Green" (surrounded by architecturally beautiful and historic University buildings) to receive their diplomas.
The base of College Hill intersects with historidal "Benefit Street," on which each of the Street's sides display many still privately-owned/occupied historically-named homes. A few of these beautiful, historic New England homes are now extended properties of Brown University's and Rhode Island School of Design's (RISD) campuses (as special University Centers and/or lodging facilities) each has maintained its histoical architectural value, integrity and beauty.
c This "College Hill" area of the State's capitol city of Providence is bustling with undergraduates and grad students during the academic year.
Summer (early June-early August) is the best time to tour College Hill anhd the surrounding area because it's much easier to get around; and, also the surrounding streets' mostly 2 or 3-hour parking space (usually impossible to find during the academic year) is much easier to find.
