Brown University Class of 2016 - Admitted Students

Welcome to the Brown Community!

On March 29 at noon the Office of College Admission at Brown University mailed out 2760 acceptance packets to students who will make up Brown’s Class of 2016. Roughly 29,000 students applied for admission this year, and only 9.6% of those applicants gained acceptance. I have been reading applicants to Brown for the last eleven years, and this is the most academically talented and diverse class I have ever seen. Congratulations to those of you who made the cut!

In the coming months please use this facebook group as a resource to learn more about Brown and its intellectual community. Using this group will enable you to meet other admitted students and to ask questions of current Brown undergraduates.

The Office of College Admission will also use this group as a means to let you know about upcoming events that will give you an opportunity to learn more about Brown. In the coming month, for example, the Office of Alumni Relations will be sponsoring admitted student receptions across the country and around the globe. To find out more about these events go to: For other questions about the university or about events for admitted students, please call the Office of College Admission at 401-863-2378.

Best Wishes,

Elisha Anderson
Associate Director of Admission

My colleagues and I are adding students to this group by checking names against the master list of all admitted students. It is easier for us to add you if your facebook name matches the name on your application. If your facebook account is under a different name, please contact me at
