For three months a year – much like the German city of Bielefeld – the city of Providence, RI ceases to exist.
Or at least it does for the vast majority of Brown students, who depart in late spring for summer activities around the globe. But for a select group of undergrads (as well as for permanent residents and Summer@Brown participants), Providence is not only alive and well throughout the summer–it’s a beautiful place to spend a few blissfully warm New England months.
With summer fast approaching, and the subsequent summer job/internship scramble getting more frenetic by the day, don’t sleep on staying in Providence for the warm months. You might have heard from friends who stayed and/or visited (or perhaps you even spent a summer here yourself!), but don’t just take it from them; here are eight Brown undergrads who spent the summer in Providence and drew on their experiences here to answer the following question:
“What is the best thing about spending a summer in Providence?”
