Brown University

Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island

As I drive towards Brown University it is clear that I’m in a part of Providence that is like no other. You enter the town that is quaint and clearly is there to support Brown. The New England and also collegiate feel is palpable and you just want to park and stay for a while. Walking in and around campus is a joy and all the positive thoughts I’ve ever heard about Brown come to life.
