A rare mind, taken too soon

Until he got a whiteboard, Scott Zager wrote equations on his window in Everett House with black and blue magic markers. During his freshman year, he bought old books to fill his bare bookshelf — he liked the smell and the look of them. He windsurfed, fished and kayaked. He loved pizza.

The candidate

Teresa Tanzi may well have been the first-ever member of Brown's class of 2010, but she won't share the stage this weekend with her one-time classmates. In fact, she never even took a class with them.

A date with destiny

As most seniors march down the aisles to receive long-awaited diplomas this weekend, the seniors of the women's rowing team are thousands of miles from College Hill, eyeing a literal finish line.

Parting ways

Statistically speaking, it is much, much easier to get into Brown than it is to get out early. Of the 1,466 students who walked through the Van Wickle Gates as first-years four years ago, only 12 — less than one-tenth of one percent — have separated from the University for good, many with ...

With Brown's Zen group, focusing on breathing

There is no "correct" style to sit on the Zafu. The plump meditation cushion ­— filled with buckwheat or kapok fiber ­— can be firm or soft. It can placed directly on the floor or on a zabuton — a stuffed floor mat to cushion the knees and the ankles. Legs can be cross-legged ...

The wonders Rhode Island Hall once held

Last October marked another phase in Rhode Island Hall's ever-evolving story. The hall, which was built in 1840, is the fourth-oldest building on the Main Green — and in the fall was rededicated the Artemis A.W. and Martha Sharp Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World, establishing ...

Students soak up the sights and sounds of Spring Weekend

"Life, liberty and the pursuit of frattiness" –– that's how some students defined this weekend's atmosphere, according to Sami Horneff '12. Students danced, drank and were merry as great weather and popular musicians arrived on College Hill. The campus came alive with activity — whether ...

U. looks to ensure Spring Weekend safety

Two years ago, Kathleen McSharry, associate dean for writing and issues of chemical dependency, wanted to see for herself what Spring Weekend was like.

Eating local, from farms to College Hill

It's 10:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning. Most students would want to crawl back under the covers and go back to sleep. But thoughts of research papers, problem sets and chemistry labs due the next week force students to pull themselves out of bed, throw on their jeans and brace the morning rain.
