Pride and Prejudice: Ending on a High Note

11173389_920541244635484_2828396745291727238_n

Hello Blogosphere! My name is Isaiah Frisbie and I am honored to be the writer for Pride and Prejudice. As a freshman myself, I came to Brown with a number of questions, many of which were answered within a matter of weeks while others remain open-ended. Perhaps one of the more enduring questions, one that may continue to be answered throughout the entirety of my Brown career, is how my own sexuality will affect my college experience. So, I have taken it upon myself to use this blog to contribute any kind of insight that I can about LGBTQ life at Brown and hopefully, in some way, help any student, prospective or otherwise, put some of those nagging worries to rest. 

I apologize that I was missing in action last week. Let’s just say that eight to ten page research papers aren’t the…easiest assignments to finish. Nevertheless, it is done and I am back. This will officially be my last post of the year and I just want to leave you off with some last thoughts! This Friday marks the last day of my second semester and the conclusion of my freshman year! I honestly can’t imagine where the time has gone! This time last year, I had just decided on Brown and now I’m already done with a quarter of my time here! It’s frightening how quickly this year has gone by! It’s frightening how quickly time goes by in general!

Snapshots of Brown: It’s That Time Again…

Final

Welcome to Snapshots of Brown, your destination for pics of Brown all year long! I’m Celina Stewart, and I’ll be bringing you little photo insights into my third year on Brown’s campus. What’s up this week? Let’s take a look… 

It’s that time of the year again. Everyone has solidified their summer plans to some extent, people are (somewhat foolishly) wearing shorts despite the weather, and everyone is working through finals period. For this last post, I just wanted to thank you all for reading throughout the year, and thank those of you who followed us on Twitter!

For this final post, I just wanted to highlight some of the amazing things that happened to me at Brown this year, as a small representation of what your time here could be. I started thinking about these yesterday, when I was taking a walk off campus in the East Side, which I captured in the photo for you. So, what has my year included?

The Bear Necessities: Get Out, Get Active

Hi there Brunonians! My name is Michelle Zabat, a friendly first-year from marvelous Michigan. From fitness to food to fun ways to feel your best, The Bear Necessities is here to give you the inside scoop on staying healthy and happy here at Brown. 

Spring seems to be teasing Providence–the weather over Spring Weekend was wonderfully warm, but the temperatures seem to have dropped somewhat since then. While this does unfortunately inhibit pulling Spring clothes out of dorm storage, it does mean that conditions are perfect for getting outside and getting active. Need some ideas for how to exercise in Providence? Check out my favorite ideas!

Blogside Manner: And So It Goes

The Alpert Medical School

Hello! I’m Lulu, a member of the PLME class of 2018/2022, and I am the writer for Blogside Manner. In this column, I will talk about the ins and outs of PLME life at Brown and, of course, the dreaded application process. Whether or not you decide to ultimately apply for PLME, I hope to help provide you with a better sense of what Brown is all about!

It finally feels like spring at Brown, and the main green is in full bloom. To all of you who came to ADOCH, I hope you enjoyed your stay! To all the prospective PLMEs who attended the PLME event, I wish I had the time to stop by and meet you; perhaps we’ll see each other during fall semester (if you come to Brown, hint hint).

He, She, and Phe: Dorm Life at Brown: Storage Struggles

Screen Shot 2015-04-26 at 9.30.00 PM

Hi there! I’m Seunglee Lee, a first year blogger for He, She, and Phe: Dorm Life at Brown. For nervous freshmen, including myself, nothing is more exiting yet intimidating than prospects of dorm life. As I navigate through all the fun, hectic and hilarious experiences dorm life at Brown has to offer, I hope to share them with you and hopefully convince you that Brown is the place to be.

Hey there, I hope you are all making it through your last weeks of school. To those who came to ADOCH, I hope you all had a great time. I know it was a bit awkward and slightly overwhelming, but Brown is a lot more exiting and engaging than those confusing three days as pre-frosh. I promise, the “Where are you from? What are you studying? Where are you living?” questions eventually come to an end after the first couple weeks of school. Continue reading

Snapshots of Brown: The UEL (Angell Street) Community Garden

IMG_2657

Welcome to Snapshots of Brown, your destination for pics of Brown all year long! I’m Celina Stewart, and I’ll be bringing you little photo insights into my third year on Brown’s campus. What’s up this week? Let’s take a look… 

A couple weeks ago, I was sitting in my teaching assistant’s office in Sharpe House on Angell Street (one of the ‘History’ houses, where the professors and teaching assistants have their offices and hold conferences), and found myself looking out the window at quite a cute little garden. While cooperative gardens, housing, and food options are common place at Brown, I had never noticed this little plot of land before. Well, this week, I was walking by and was reminded to look it up- so I did! It turns out, it is called the UEL Community Garden, and has been there since 1984. Wanna learn more?  Continue reading

The Bear Necessities: Spring Weekend Adventures

IMG_5775

Hi there Brunonians! My name is Michelle Zabat, a friendly first-year from marvelous Michigan. From fitness to food to fun ways to feel your best, The Bear Necessities is here to give you the inside scoop on staying healthy and happy here at Brown. 

Spring Weekend finally sprung, and boy, was it fun. If you’ve kept up-to-date on the happenings here at Brown, you probably know that Spring Weekend is one of the most anticipated times of the year. After my first time experiencing it, I can confidently say that it really is all that it’s hyped up to be.

But I’m not going to lie–Spring Weekend can get crazy. If you’re like me and you’re not necessarily as wild as wild can be, have no fear. Spring Weekend can be a fun time with friends no matter what you’re up to on the best three days of the year.  Continue reading
