A collage of sights, sounds, and events captures the spirit of Brown University in its 251st year. The University celebrated accomplishments and turned toward its future, launching the <em>BrownTogether</em> campaign and beginning the work of <em>Building on Distinction</em>.

The images and videos were gathered and assembled by the Office of University Communications. Sami Overby, a junior at Brown, composed the music, a set of seven sketches for violin, clarinet, cello, and piano titled Layla. The soundtrack uses part of the first sketch and draws on audio from two sessions: a read-through from a composition seminar at Brown and a performance at Brown’s “Fermata” concert in the fall of 2014.
