Come join your fellow Brown athletes for an evening of teaching, discussion, fellowship, and fun. You’ll learn more about AIA and what it means to honor God in sport and life.

There are no pre-req’s for attending, religious or not, athletic or not…no matter whether you’re a current athlete, former athlete, club athlete, or wanna be athlete…all are welcome.

Watch this short video and you’ll see that it’s a relaxing, informal time to connect with other students and pursue truth and life together–come join us! There are new faces every week, and most likely you’ll already know a few people there.

8:00-9:00pm Wednesdays
