    Baha’i Club Study Circle

    Page-Robinson Hall

    Study Circles are groups of friends who come together to study the Baha’i teachings and apply them in service to their communities. The Baha’i Club offers circles of study, open to all, that enable people of varied backgrounds to advance on equal footing and explore the application of the Baha’i teachings to their individual and collective lives. This process is meant to build capacity for service by concentrating on the application of the spiritual insights gained through profound study of the Baha’i Writings.

    Students interested in gaining practical experience may consider working with the local Providence Baha’i community (not affiliated with Brown or RISD), which sponsors a program servicing middle-school-age youth in a Providence neighborhood within walking distance of the Brown and RISD campuses.

    We encourage and welcome students of all spiritual backgrounds, (including none at all), along with those simply searching for a new way, at all Baha’i Club events and activities.

    Please join us every Wednesday for meeting for worship in the manner of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), in Page-Robinson Hall, Room 409. All are welcome! Meeting for worship begins and ends with silence, out of which one may speak if moved to do so. We begin about 12:05, and end about 12:45, but don’t feel constrained by the clock – come when you can. This is a weekly event, sponsored by the Office of Chaplains and Religious Life.

  • What is economic well-being? How does justice apply to the extremes of the material world? What spiritual principles apply to the problems of extreme wealth and extreme poverty?

    We will provide a few short passages from the writings of the Baha’i Faith, and encourage others to bring contributions from their own background.

    We encourage and welcome students of all spiritual backgrounds, (including none at all), along with those simply searching for a new way, at all Baha’i Club events and activities.

  • All doors will be locked and card access will be disabled at this time. It is your responsibility to ensure that all windows are closed and locked. Please be sure that your door is locked when leaving and your heating system is working. If you are currently having issues with your room temperature being too cold, please call Facilities Managements’ Service Response Center at 401-863-7800.

    On campus residences will reopen on Saturday, January 18, 2020. If you require on-campus housing before residence halls open for spring semester, you must fill out a spring early arrival housing request .

    If international residence or other extenuating circumstances require you to seek housing during the December portion of winter break, please contact our office before December 16th, 2019. Approval to stay in the residence halls during the December portion of winter break will be very limited, due in part to the curtailment of campus services during this period.

    Please follow these guidelines as you prepare to leave for winter break:

    1. Close and lock all your windows. If any windows or locks are broken, please call Facilities Management at 401-863-7800.

    2. Remove all trash and open food from your room and refrigerator. Please use designated trash rooms rather than leaving it in the hallway. Do not throw away food trash in restroom trash cans. Custodial services will be curtailed during the December portion of winter break, meaning trash left in dorm rooms or restrooms will not be removed until full staffing returns in January.

    3. Unplug all appliances except refrigerators. This will protect your items from potential power surges.

    4. Be kind to animals. Pets (approved or non-approved) will not survive alone for a month. Any student found to have left an animal alone in their residence hall room over break may be subject to referral to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards or the Department of Public Safety. They may also lose the ability to house the animal on campus in future semesters.

    5. Water and cover your plants with plastic bags if you cannot take them home. Please do not leave them in the bathroom.

    6. Take valuables with you. Do not forget your room keys, Brown ID, passport, medications, or plane tickets.

    7. Lock all doors and shut off lights.

    If you have had any prohibited items confiscated by the Office of Residential Life or Environmental Health and Safety during the health and safety inspection process, you are responsible for retrieving these items prior to your departure for the winter break. To make arrangements for pick up, please email [email protected]. All unclaimed items will be discarded on Monday, December 16, 2019 at noon.

    Students who have enrolled in a Wintersession course should visit the Wintersession website for information about housing and meal plans. Enrolled students will receive a housing form via email following registration.

    Brown University students hoping to take a RISD Wintersession course should email our office to request early arrival housing. All requests must be submitted by December 20th at 12pm; requests made after this date may not be processed in time. For full details, please refer to the Wintersession website .

    For students who are studying abroad and are looking for storage opportunities over the winter, Brown Student Agencies partners with College Storage to help store student items during their time away. Please refer to BSA’s website .
