Groups

There are lots of clubs at Brown for those interested in design as an extracurricular. Scroll down to check some out!

Brown/RISD STEAM

This is a student group at Brown University. The mentality of STEAM hinges upon the ability to draw astute connections between disciplines and fearlessly explore potential for collaboration at the interface. We strive to integrate the creativity and aesthetics of the arts; the problem solving tools and rigor of the STEM fields; and the critical thinking and ethical considerations of the humanities. We believe that this unification powerfully drives progress toward the future.

Make sure you don’t leave your projects until the last moment, though - the BDW gets busiest as reading period approaches.
