One of the oldest colleges in the Nation, Brown University was founded in 1764, prior to American independence from the British. Students flock to this Ivy League institution for its reputation for academic excellence, curriculum flexibility and unrivaled faculty that focuses on undergraduate education. Students at Brown are encouraged to be architects of their own degrees if they find the majors on offer to be unsatisfactory. They are encouraged to explore and take risks as they search for what lights their fire. While students are an academically driven and curious bunch, they find time to socialize, join student organizations and partake in Brown’s quirky traditions. Among these traditions is keeping alive the spirit and accomplishments of Josiah S. Carberry, a fictional professor of Psychoceramics, walking in through the main Van Wickle gates as freshmen and out during convocation (only twice in 4 years) and taking part in the athletic contests and dances of Spring Weekend. Brown breeds creativity and excellence in itsstudent body, equipping those who graduate for illustrious careers.
