Excellence at Brown

Excellence at Brown is a free writing-intensive program that orients incoming students to Brown's academic and campus culture. Offered the week before general Orientation, the program includes five seminars taught by distinguished Brown professors from a range of academic disciplines. Short reading assignments serve as the basis for seminar discussions, and students work one-on-one with graduate-student staff at Brown's Writing Center to learn the elements of successful academic writing across the curriculum.

Excellence at Brown provides an intense, fun, meaningful experience that puts students in a position to thrive at Brown. Throughout the week, students build relationships with faculty and with other students while learning how to navigate Brown's campus. By the time Orientation begins, students are ready to immerse themselves in Brown's rich living and learning environment.
