Local Atmosphere: The city is small and the local economy generally revolves around the University.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel fairly safe on campus. The university offers a number of safety measures which students can take advantage of: SafeRide, SafeWalk, etc.

Greek Life: I love that the Greek life on campus is pretty low key. When you meet students who are Greeks, you know that being Greek is not what they're "all about." Being Greek is, undoubtedly, one of the many things they are involved in on campus.

Academics: The New Curriculum, in many ways, defines academics at Brown. Freedom to explore fields without general requirements has been incredible.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Love the nightlife at Brown! Only issue is that the local bars open a bit too early (around 1 or 2pm)

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I really enjoyed campus housing. Resident Assistants are helpful guides who aren't there to "get you in trouble." Very much treated like an adult. Many of the older dorms are undergoing renovations, which is pretty exciting.

5 College Senior

Diversity: As a student of color at Brown, I've felt that I've been met with nothing but acceptance.

Brown has a reputation that precedes itself. As an Ivy League school, Brown carries a distinction that many students desire, while knowing little about what they need or want in a liberal arts education. In that sense, Brown’s liberal nature and open curriculum exceed that of the average liberal arts school. Many students redefine and rediscover themselves in college, and Brown’s biggest strength is that it promotes individual development and self-discovery over the course of the undergraduate career. Internally, you have a lot of chances to make mistakes, which the University calls “discoveries,” in the course of your studies. It’s easy to change your concentration in the fifth or even sixth semester.

Few people who choose Brown regret it. While it’s not the school for everyone, almost anyone can find what they are looking for at Brown. Whether you are from New England or Siberia, there are clubs, organizations, classes, and fellow students who share your academic and personal interests. Most people choose Brown for its liberal nature and its strong academic resources, and few are disappointed.
