Get outside this summer or fall and take a walk around Brown University with a Providence Village member associated with the school as your walking partner. Visit the Sports complex and its life sized Kodiac Bear, then on to the new Wellness Center and Dorm, past the rising Performing Arts Center, the Main Green to talk about the varied architectural styles, the Martin Puryear Slavery Memorial, the Henry Moore sculpture, and so much more.
Contact one of these 3 volunteers, select a day and time, then take a stroll along tranquil campus pathways that suits your ability and interest.
