PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Was Instagram created specifically for Brown's fall semester? As leaves on the Main Green fell and students make their way to and then from College Hill, it certainly seemed that way. From autumnal strolls through Pembroke, breathtaking sunsets over Wriston Quad and a seemingly endless supply of freshly fallen leaves on the Quiet Green — plus more events, forums, residencies, concerts and performances than you can count — here's a look at just 27 of more than 60,000 photos added to #BrownUniversity on Instagram.
