PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Nearly 700 students admitted to the Class of 2019 through Brown’s regular decision program are expected on campus for A Day on College Hill, which runs from April 21-23. With students and families from 46 states and nearly two-dozen countries expected to partake in the festivities, the Office of Admission expects the full guest list of ADOCH participants to be into four figures.
“We hope very much the record number of students and parents who are attending ADOCH will be able to experience the full range of opportunities and possibilities at Brown,” said James Miller, dean of admission. “But more importantly, they will learn more about the people they will find in the Brown community."
Hosted by the Office of College Admission, the annual event invites admitted students to live on campus for two days to experience life at Brown. Prospective students can attend classes, speak with future and current classmates, take part in panel discussions, and get a sense of life at Brown.
In addition to admitted students from 46 U.S. states, the admission office expects to welcome ADOCH visitors from Australia, Bahamas, Bahrain, Brazil, Canada, China, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Japan, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.
President Christina Paxson and Miller will greet students at 7 p.m. on the College Green Tuesday, April 21. Later that evening, visiting students will mingle with undergraduates from a broad range student groups. There is a full day of activities on Wednesday, and ADOCH concludes Thursday with a farewell from Kenneth Miller, professor of biology, on the College Green.
Parents are welcome to attend a variety of lectures including “In Pursuit of the Humanities,” “Anatomy of PLME,” “The Magical Brain: From Neurons to Consciousness,” and many others.
The University announced its admission decisions for the Class of 2019 on March 31, 2015. Admitted students have until May 1 to make their final college decisions.
