4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is a great people, a great environment, and a great place to grow at. Some things lack like housing and food but then again, that's not why we're all here.

Overall Experience: Due to the openness of degrees here, careers range far and wide. A problem with this though, is that it leaves a higher chance to not get a job in one's desired field.

Health & Safety: The city of Providence is not very much divided from Brown so of course there are reports of crimes. Sexual assault has long been a problem here but it it being addressed strongly.

Campus Housing: It's mainly a great atmosphere for the people around you. The dorms are nothing extraordinary.

Greek Life: Fraternities are generally open to the general student populace for events and there isn't much differentiation between non-Greeks and Greeks.

Athletics: Students are generally interested in athletics, but it's really not as big as at some other comparable schools.

Overall Experience: So far, from what I'm learning about Brown, everyone is so different and I feel like that allows for a free flow of ideas which is amazing. I feel so much more well-rounded as a result.

Diversity: Not diverse, but don't let that dissuade you, it's by far the most accepting Ivy League school

Drug Safety: Not too crazy, but its college, you're bound to run into these types of things at some point

Overall Experience: I've learned so many things I never knew I could do.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is an excellent selection of diverse classes offered at this school, as well as several fantastic and approachable professors; ones who are clearly passionate experts in their field of study. There are also many classes of varying size, depending on the chosen department. I have joined classes of 30 students and less, or over 200. Writing and humanities classes tend to be smaller with the higher level STEM classes often dramatically shrinking in size compared to the introduction classes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am excited to pursue medical school after earning my bachelors in science degree, I believe there will be job/internship prospects with a degree from this school as well as after graduate school. I have put trust in the alumni network as well as my own personal network to pursue a satisfying career upon graduation. I have heard of excellent opportunities students have earned soon after their completion of undergrad. The CareerLab on campus has also a few excellent mentors to aid students in their job search throughout their time here.

Health & Safety: I have no information on how our TitleIX officials handle sexual assault cases but I have not heard rewarding opinions, granted I am excited to see what direction they intend to pursue sexual assault awareness & help for victims. The department shows promise.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Having lived in Morriss-Champlin for the past year and now moving to Perkins this year, I have gotten almost the worst end of the stick in my first two years of housing on Brown's campus. Both dorms are easily viewed by the student body to be the worst freshman and sophomore housing selections; nevertheless, living in those dorms has neither impeded nor discouraged me to engage in the social atmosphere of the campus or successfully get to classes. There are much, much better accommodations on campus for first and second years, both closer to campus and included more advanced amenities; I also will add that Perkins is getting a renovation this summer and will undoubtedly have better amenities next year!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I would say fan support is supplied mostly by parents/family members but not a large portion of the student body will turn out for a particular team. Team performance for a number of our sports is not the best, but the athletic facilities that they train in are top notch. Granted, I have only been to football/rugby/basketball games, any other information I have only heard through word of mouth.

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.
