Student Activities Office!

As part of the Division of Campus Life and Student Services, the Student Activities Office leads campus efforts to support  400+  student groups. We co-coordinate undergraduate Orientation with the Dean of the College and support the Brown Outdoor Leadership Training (BOLT), Brown Student Agencies, and Liber Brunensis (Brown's Yearbook).

In addition, the office provides oversight and coordination for two facilities that serve the Brown community—the Stephen Robert '62 Campus Center and T.F. Green Hall for Student Performing Arts.
