Guermazi ’24: Exploration at Brown and looking ahead

I want to address the elephant in the room: Yes, my name is Dorra. I used to hate how my name sounded like that of a certain cartoon character with a watermelon-shaped head and a talking monkey. I realized, though, that I can relate to Dora the Explorer in more ways than I thought, and I’m sure you ...

Fiorentino ’24: A guide to keeping Brown’s spirit with you

The local legend says that if you drink from the fountain outside the Athanæum, you will never leave College Hill. Brown poet and Professor Keith Waldrop once told Robert Arellano ’91 MA’94 that this legend was originally pronounced by Edgar Allan Poe after he was dumped by lifelong Providence ...

Zucker ’24: We Are All Born Lacking

We are all born lacking. It might sound like an insult. But to me, that phrase not only provides me perspective, it’s a beacon of optimism. “We Are All Born Lacking” is the name of a poem written by author Elizabeth Shapiro for my mother on the day of her birth in the middle of a blizzard in rural ...

Matos ’24: Brunocollections

At the beginning of this semester, I decided to hang a string of rainbow lights around the perimeter of my room. Later that same evening, when the sun had finally set, I plugged the lights into the extension cord near my bed and marveled as the tiny red, green, yellow and blue bulbs illuminated my tiny ...

Feyisetan ’24: Do Not Fear Change

About four years ago, my college journey started with the Brown 2024 GroupMe. I had imagined my first year of college in many different ways except getting delayed and taking place online. I had watched many YouTube videos to get an idea of what the freshman dorms looked like or what the college experience ...

Corwin ’24: Sentiments from a Super Senior

I anticipate that the enduring identity of Brown’s class of 2024 will inevitably center on our scattered start to college in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be mentioned in speeches throughout Commencement weekend and at reunions down the line. I am a member of the class of 2024, but ...

Bahl ’24: Lasts and Firsts

Some of my ‘last’s at Brown have been easy to keep track of — last first day of classes, last Spring Weekend, last late night at the Rock working on my thesis. I’m writing this before May, but I have no doubt that my next few weeks will find me desperately seeking out other lasts, egged on by ...

Editors' Note: The 'normal college experience'

There is no standard college experience. Everyone, no matter when or where they went to school, can say that their time on campus had its challenges and oddities. But it’s hard to imagine a stranger start to college than the class of 2024's — a semester late and taking classes online from our dorm ...

Spring Weekend is supposed to be a time of celebration for all students, a grand finale to Brown’s academic year.
