3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Ratty provides decent daily options, however, they can get monotonous quite easily.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman Housing at Brown can be any kinda of experience. You are randomly assigned a roommate. For me this was a great experience, but some of my friends had lesser experience

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: i don't know many people off campus. all first years are required to be in on campus housing. most housing is close enough to walk to class.

3 College Freshman

Administration: there isn't much talk about administrative policies in the social lives of people that i have heard. the most i have heard about are academic honesty and dorm rules about candles and cooking equipment.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: well, the people in the financial aid office are polite and nice, but a bit stubborn, from my experience. however I was able to get very good financial assistance from the school, which made up for it.

Off-Campus Dining: because the school is located right on thayer st. students don't have to travel far at all to get food off campus. there is mexican, pizza, greek, chinese, korean, indian, and more right next to the school. and its all pretty good, and not crazy expensive either.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are three main dining halls, and another that is more like a cafe. between these there are enough options to satisfy your cravings. by the end of the semester you get kind of bored with the food, but not because it tastes bad, it just gets a bit repetitive. but overall, not bad at all.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt scared while on campus. the school provides night transportation, security around campus, safe-walks, and emergency telephones are located all throughout campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: some sports get better attention than others, but the students who DO attend are very enthusiastic. school spirit is very important of for the students who go to support the teams.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There are many places to study around campus, including green spaces throughout, three different libraries, dorm lounges, and study spaces. there is always some kind of performance or activity available.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some are better than others, parties every weekend. apparently the worst dorms are the ones I live in on Pembroke campus, but I hear Perkins is pretty bad, mostly because of the distance from the main part of campus. but altogether livable and friendly.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Keeney and I love it

Party Scene: There is always something going on or if not throw your own

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Providence is a great, small city

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Besides a few unfortunate events, I always feel safe

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many upperclassmen live off campus

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Greatest time of my life so far

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not a huge part of campus, but present

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid

3 College Freshman

Administration: Can feel separated from the student body

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are a lot of parties at the Greek houses, particularly the fraternities. There is no snobbery between Greeks and non-Greeks.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Thayer street has a large variety of affordable eating places. My favorites are Flatbread, East-side Pockets, The English Alehouse, Tealuxe, and Kabob and Curry.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is almost no crime on campus, but the large amount of drinking has led to a couple sexual assault cases.

2 College Freshman

Administration: Drinking and underage drinking is prevalent on Brown's campus as is marijuana use. It can be quite loud and distracting at times in the dorms, but I never feel pressured into joining drug and alcohol use.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything is very close, so housing is convenient anywhere. The worst option is definitely Perkins but everywhere else is nice. The social atmosphere is good and anyone can find people they will want to hang out with. The part/drinking scene can be overwhelming at times.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
