Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Be careful of the credit/no credit grade option. Usually, you end up getting an A anyway, or you totally slack off and get nothing out of the class.
  • If you are coming from a warm area, don't underestimate the cold of the winter here. Be sure to buy a thick, warm, water-resistant winter coat.
  • Most things can be bought at school for about the same cost as shipping, so don't be a pack rat when you are moving to campus.
  • Upper-level courses are not necessarily harder than lower level ones. Don't be afraid to take harder classes as a freshman if you are interested in them.
  • What you take freshman year doesn't matter, but your grades do.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Call (401) 863-2378 on any weekday from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. eastern time for information about tours. Interviews are recommended but not required. Off-campus interviews are offered by alumni who contact students applying for admission and arrange a time and place to meet. These interviews provide the Board of Admission with another means with which to evaluate the applicant.
Campus Tours
Tours are offered most days at varying times in the morning and the evening, and take about an hour. The office recommends contacting them for specific schedules.
Overnight Visits
A limited number of high school students can stay with current freshmen on weeknights during the semester. This is an excellent way to see first-hand the typical day of a Brown student on campus and in class. Registration is done online at the Admissions Web site.
