Tucked behind the staircase on the second floor of Founders Hall is one of the Arlington campus’s unique features. The Arlington campus “quiet meditation room” is a small space that is used by students who choose to take a quiet moment to relax and relieve themselves of the pressures and stresses of school.

The space is a replica of the Fairfax campus meditation space, constructed in 2001, located on the third floor of the Johnson Center. The JC meditation center sparked controversy in 2007 as predominately Muslim students were using the room when the space was intended to be open to all students.

For Brown, who has coached the Patriots to 873 wins throughout his tenure, the expectations for the upcoming season were the same as they have been in years past.
