“We know that prospective students are curious about what our campus looks and feels like,” says Logan Powell, Brown’s dean of admission. “With this virtual tour, they can get a sense of Brown’s distinctive academic and cultural experience. As well as the history and beauty of campus—early in the admissions process, even before they visit us in person.”

Powell adds, “But we are particularly excited to offer students who can’t physically travel to campus a way to ‘visit’ and get a better sense of what Brown is all about.”
