Weekly Brown Snapshot: Veterans Day


Can’t make it Brown’s beautiful campus? Want to see life at Brown through a student’s eyes? Look no further! Welcome to Weekly Brown Snapshot, a blog devoted to picturing (quite literally!) all that Brown has to offer. Follow senior Kimberly Takahata as she documents her last fall in the place she’s grown to call home.

Happy Veterans Day! Today, American flags line the walkways on Ruth J. Simmons Quad, the green space in the geographic center of campus (although the Main Green is the social center of campus).

At noon, a bagpiper lead  a procession the Main Green to a ceremony on the Quad, honoring members of the Brown and Rhode Island communities who have served the nation in the U.S. military. It was quite a soundtrack to daily French class.

Prefrosh! Brunonians! Have anything you’d like to see highlighted in the next weeks? Know any corny jokes? Email suggestions/comments/punchlines to kimberly_takahata@brown.edu.
