Campus UU’s: Brown University Unitarian Universalist Group

Location: Parish House

Lovingly nicknamed BUUUG, the Brown University Unitarian Universalist Group offers college-agers from diverse backgrounds a place to find friendship and to explore their spiritual journeys in a faith community.

Students from Brown, Rhode Island School of Design, and other neighboring colleges as well as all young adults in the region are welcome.

Group members attend and participate in worship services, social action, and more. They meet weekly for activities such as fireside worship, games, multifaith forums, parties, trips, and overnights.

Everyone is encouraged to help with ideas and planning. This UU campus group had its constitution approved by the Brown University Council of Students in 2003 and is co-affiliated with First Unitarian and the Office of the Chaplain & Religious Life at Brown.

Student facilitators: Kim Meilum and Elias Ellison.
Advisor/Brown Religious Life affiliate: Cathy Seggel
