There are so many reasons to love your Brown ID. Sure, you might have lost it a few times over Spring Weekend and sure, it might make you remember what you looked like with bangs, but that card has swiped you into an incredible Brunonian community. And as if that weren’t enough, it also boasts free RIPTA rides! And your brown.edu email? It’s good for free Microsoft Office, free Rosetta Stone, and free New York Times.
