If you haven’t read President Paxson’s email or The Herald‘s article about it yet, the BrownConnect website officially launched today. The site, which was proposed as a part of President Paxson’s strategic plan, is designed to give students the best opportunities possible in order to build on their education during the summer. Whether that means an internship in San Francisco or research on College Hill, there’s now a single place for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to consult in order to help them navigate through what can be a very stressful process.
BrownConnect’s design will certainly help its cause. After logging in like you would to any other Brown website (Canvas, the JIB, etc.), you will see a crisp red, gray, and brown home page with portals for both current students and alumni. I wonder where they got the color scheme from? Anyway, once you enter the student side of the site, you can search directly for internships, alumni connections, and funding opportunities. Alternatively, you could take a look at one of the featured positions below the search bar.
