The academic year at Brown University is winding down, but there are some great events being presented by the university for the entire month! All of these events are open to the public, but they are discounted for those with a Brown student identification, so if you are interested you might want to find your friend with Ivy League smarts to save you a few dollars on getting in! Enjoy some of these fantastic events happening in right in Providence!
