The Herald’s Senior Survey

CALLING ALL SENIORS:

As graduation looms nearer and nearer (ahhhhhhhhhh!), it’s time to tell us how you really feel about your four years at Brown.

Results will be printed in The Herald’s Commencement Magazine, available on newsstands and at browndailyherald.com during Senior Week.
