Fierce competition for funds for special projects demands that the money invested in a special project creates value. The Campus Guide does just that. It leverages the value inherent in the campus, its buildings, and its creators to cultivate potential patrons, re-engage alumni and their participation, and attract the most fitting students to each class.

“The Campus Guide is a singular history of the college: not just its structures, but the people who built, occupied, and shaped them, while they in turn shaped us.” — Adam Falk, Williams College, President-emeritus; Carnegie Foundation, president

Trinity College, University of Toronto, 2d edition

“Our most important volunteers love this campus, and the Campus Guide connects them to campus when they are not here, and importantly, helps them to understand how things change while they stay the same.” — Christine Paxson, President, Brown University

“It is a great gift to give every corporation board member, and a great piece of literature that has never before existed about Brown.” — Joan W. Sorenson, Corporation Board member, alumna, and parent, Brown University

“Our alumni discover the campus etched in their mind’s eye with clarity and affection. In a world in which so much changes, the college offers reassuring continuity.” — Frances D. Fergusson, President, Vassar College

“The Brown Campus Guide is a tasteful and sophisticated tool to steward prospective donors and boost pride of place among alumni.” — Todd Andrews, Alumni Relations Vice President, Brown University
