A Brown 250+ Moment: July 1, 1971
43 years ago, the Men’s and Women’s Colleges were combined. From the time in 1891 when women were first permitted to take classes, stand for examinations, and receive Brown degrees, they had been admitted to and enrolled in a separate college, first the Women’s College, later Pembroke College in Brown University. In 1971, Pembroke College and “The” College merged into a single entity.

113 years ago this month, the Van Wickle Gates were dedicated. Built with a bequest from Augustus Stout Van Wickle, Class of 1876, the Van Wickle Gates serve as the ceremonial entry to campus. The center gates remain closed except for two occasions. They are opened inward to admit first-year students at the beginning of the college year and outward at commencement to allow graduating seniors to pass through
"Please go change the world. If you are here today and if you graduate from Brown, you are ready to tackle just about anything."
