Undergraduate Orientation

Orientation Welcoming Committee

Student volunteers and staff will help introduce you to the Brown community.

The Orientation Welcoming Committee, or OWC, is responsible for planning and executing fun, active social programming for Orientation while supporting you as you adapt to life at the University and find your place in Brown’s student community.

Orientation is filled with activities to acquaint you with the Brown campus and your fellow classmates. It’s the OWC’s hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to develop new friendships, familiarize yourself with the campus and enjoy what is sure to be a memorable time.
