Brown University was on my list of places to visit and we were glad we did. We had an enjoyable day walking through and around the campus. I took many photographs of the buildings and artwork scattered throughout the quads.

Really enjoyed a walk though campus looking at the architectural style and the grounds. Very nice- if you have a few hours to just stroll it is well worth the relaxing walk.
