Capital city students in the tiny state of Rhode Island, have a wonderful selection of colleges and universities to choose from. Brown University, located in Providence, was established as one of the nine Colonial Colleges that were chartered after the American Revolution, before United States became a sovereign nation.
This private, Ivy League university was founded by a Baptist Church Association and named, College in the English Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. King George III granted the charter for the college in 1764. Three of the sixty signatures on the charter were from the Brown family. The college was renamed Brown University, in honor of the strong connection to the Brown family.
