Whether online or in-person, you can take advantage of these Brown Pre-College virtual social and educational programs.

Experiences outside of the classroom are a vital part of Brown Pre-College programs. Through these activities—both educational and social—you’ll strengthen your connection to a robust community of peers from around the world while developing personal and social skills critical to success in the college setting.

With a variety of virtual events offered throughout the summer, you’ll find at least one topic and format that fits you best.
