"To be up all night in the darkness of your youth but to be ready for the day to come...that was what going to Brown felt like." -Jeffrey Eugenides

In celebration of Brown University's 250th anniversary, fifty remarkable, prizewinning writers and artists who went to Brown provide unique stories - many published for the first time - about their adventures on College Hill. Funny, poignant, subversive, and nostalgic, the essays, comics, and poems in this collection paint a vivid picture of college life, from the 1950s to the present, at one of America's most interesting universities.

"At Brown, we felt safely ensconced in a carefree, counterculture cocoon - free to criticize the university president, join a strike by cafeteria workers, break china laughing, or kiss the sky." -Pamela Constable
