About

Founded prior to the American Revolution in 1764 as the College in the English Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Brown University is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the country. A private Ivy League research university, Brown was the first school in the U.S. to accept students regardless of religious background.

Seated atop College Hill and overlooking the capital of Rhode Island, Brown’s urban campus is marked by Georgian colonial-style architecture and coupled with sprawling greens, quads, and overhanging oaks. Brown is one of the most selective and prestigious universities in the world.

Brown offers undergraduates a level of autonomy matched by few; its program for undergraduates “encourages intellectual exploration and risk taking and fosters rigorous multidisciplinary study…” With 6,400 undergraduates, Brown has a greater percentage of its total enrollment as undergraduate students than any other Ivy League institution. Brown’s graduate programs offer a variety of studies; the Medical School and its programs in physical and social sciences are among the best in the country. There are more than 400 student organizations and clubs on campus; students who attend Brown are consistently ranked among the happiest in the country by the Princeton Review. Greek life on campus is smaller than most and includes several co-ed chapters.

The Brown Bears compete at the Division I level in the Ivy League across 37 varsity sports. The men’s and women’s rowing teams are traditional powerhouses.

Notable alumni and attendees include CNN and TBS founder Ted Turner, pioneering engineer and psychologist Lillian Moller Gilbreth, and football legend John Heisman.
