Experience Brown

The Experience Brown program aims to provide prospective students with the opportunity to get a sense of what it is like to be a student at Brown University by allowing them structured access to classes and one-on-one, non-evaluative contact with a current student. All hosts are members of the Bruin Club and are volunteers.

The Experience Brown program matches prospective students with current students who share their academic or extracurricular interests and allows prospective students to attend a class and eat lunch in a dining hall with their host.

The Experience Brown program does not include a campus tour or information session, but is in close communication with the coordinators for both of these programs so as to ensure ample opportunity to attend all of the programming the Bruin Club offers daily. For more information about tours and information sessions, please visit http://www.brown.edu/admission/undergraduate/visit.
