Student Organizations

Student organizations embody the energy, focus and innovation of Brown students

The large number of clubs at Brown (400-plus, formed and run by students) reflects the community’s diversity of interests. It’s easy to get involved.


Brown has a cappella groups, bands, improv and sketch comedy, dance groups, student-produced plays and musicals and many other ways for students to express their creative side.


Brown offers lots of opportunities to stay active. Students can form an intramural team or join a club sport team, which offers a high level of competition without the time commitment of varsity sports. Or they can join a recreational group focused on backpacking, ballroom dance, badminton, cycling, polo, table tennis, Taekwondo and more


Student media outlets include the Brown Daily Herald (an independent daily since 1891); the weekly College Hill Independent; a variety of academic, political and literary journals; and Brown Motion Pictures.


There are myriad service opportunities at Brown through the many groups committed to social action and the Swearer Center, enabling students to better the world, locally and across the globe.
