Brown University Was Once A Tiny School With Just One Building

Brown University is probably one of Rhode Island’s most referenced landmarks. In television, books, and movies, characters are constantly dreaming about attending Brown, or succeeding at it. As one of the Ivy Leagues, this makes a lot of sense, so many people wish for nothing more than to attend one of these seven prestigious schools. While it may seem like Brown has always been the massive monolith that it is, in fact, the school used to only have one building for their students.

The history of Brown University is quite in depth and very interesting, even if you are not studying there or intending to in the future. Brown’s history illustrates a lot of the history of the state of Rhode Island and reading more about it can only help you understand the culture of little Rhody better. This timeline on the Brown University website can be a great place to start reading further.
