Why Brown Statement: “My dream in high school was to be able to swim at the collegiate level at a school with a challenging academic environment, and Brown surpassed all that I had hoped for. I felt a welcoming presence from the coaches, staff, and faculty. I could even picture myself reading a book or relaxing in the main green and I knew then that if I had to find a home away from home, it would be at Brown. I'm incredibly thrilled for what's in store the next four years. Go Bruno!"
