Hey everybody! I'm a Midshipman at Brown University in beautiful Providence, Rhode Island and want to reach out to the community to promote interest in our program. Currently, Brown is a crosstown school for College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. We commute to Holy Cross twice a week to complete our training. Currently, there are only three MIDN in the unit from Brown (including myself) and we've had a hard time growing our numbers because of the commute and because a lot of people don't know Brown is a school that allows the scholarship. My freshman year was the first year since 1971 that MIDN were allowed back on campus. While to commute can make the program a challenge at times, I'd like to encourage more people to apply to the school if you get the scholarship. We only had two students apply last year, of which one was accepted and later chose a different school. All three of us really want the program to grow at Brown, and we think that Brown's open curriculum, proximity to the Naval War College at NS Newport, and inclusion in one of the country's premier NROTC Battalions make the school a great option for potential MIDN. We're a tight-knit group of MIDN and we'd love to answer any questions you all may have. Go Bruno and go Navy!
