Academic Support Group is a biweekly meeting for students to talk to a dean and one another about academic and personal challenges they have encountered at Brown. Support group offers a safe place to find encouragement and support for many aspects of the Brown experience, including motivation, adjustment to college, and relationships with family and friends.
