My wife and I were in town for a wedding and had some spare time, so we walked around the campus at Brown. It is beautiful!

Really beautiful campus. Not as extensive as some of the Ivies, but only has one major professional school-Medicine.

Accessible in some respects only via a very steep hill climb. The highest point in RI, so... More

I enjoyed parents/family weekend. My niece, Caylen Rhine attends Brown University and I was excited to visit her campus, meet her friends, sightseeing and taking part of the festivities. #Houston

The Brown University campus dates back over 250 years to 1764 and it's original building, University Hall, opened 6 years later.
