    Providence is quite a boring place. Be aware of this. If you are a total metropolitan person and cannot live in a rural environment, consider going to another school.

    Anything in Providence....walk to Thayer St, walk downtown, go to Waterfire, go to an art show, a movie, a club, dinner. There is always something fun to do.

    Most of the time students are working in the studio so free time is sparse but when it exists there are tons of activities to do at Brown.

    You can visit the RISD museum, go to the mall, or see the animals at the zoo, ride a bus to New York or Boston to shop, eat and play, go to the beach, visit mansions, explore the old buildings, volunteer in some Rhode Island organization like the Children's Museum, feed the swans, keep an eye out for life in the river (it exists), and hang out with your zany friends whether they be from RISD, Brown, or Johnson and Wales.

    There are numerous things to do for fun. There is the artist's ball in the fall (costume party/dance) as well as hundreds of clubs. Around Providence there are many restaurants, shops, and places to hang out.

    Go to the recycling center for cheap materials. Go to Savers and the Salvation Army for weird things and cheap clothes. Go to shows and concerts around Providence. Host a party.
