Resident Spotlight

“The community in Brown is so welcoming and the location is A-plus. We are made of all kinds of students and love to bring new people into the fold! Being near to dining halls, classes, and libraries seems like a no-brainer but it is so important -- when you have an early class or know that you should go study, it’s nice to be close. There is a real opportunity and richness in knowing your neighbors, too. I have met some of my very best friends living on-Grounds.”
