5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Brown makes me feel secure and cared all the time, in that I myself have never felt my safety was challenged, and people with safety problems are taken perfect care of.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms at Brown were called "hotels" for legit reasons.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I love how Greek life always takes part in campus life, but is never too huge or messy.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sport remains an integral part of campus life, though not as huge as in state schools. In stead of being overwhelmingly competitive, Brown holds an open and mild attitude toward athletes and instrumental players, so that no one is under great pressure but we simply enjoy sports as an exciting activity.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Brown provides students with a liberal environment full of opportunities, so that each student has the aspiration and passion to pursue their interests and specialties. I enjoyed the extremely insightful advising services provided by professors and advisors, in that they do not only think of you as a student, but more as a person in the society. Brown is where you discover unlimited potentials, sharpen your abilities, and become proud of who you are and what you achieve.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most classes, especially in the humanities, are small which allows for more participation and discussion. It is fairly easy to get a hold of professors. Students are generally supportive of one another.

Campus Housing: Residential halls do not have air-conditioning units. It is very hot in the summer. Some dorms are very old, but for the most part, the dorms are relatively spacious.

Athletics: I do not frequently attend sport events and games.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Brown's undergraduate student population is very engaged in the issues across campus. Student groups are actively involved in making a difference outside of campus as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you're intellectually curious, Brown is the school for you. I love the open curriculum and although the workload can be heavy at times, there is a lot of grade inflation and it is easy to get A's. There are only a few downsides to going here. Although the campus is gorgeous and the brick buildings give it that classic Ivy-League feel, but that comes at a cost- a lot of the amenities are outdated. Also, even though we have an amazing, intelligent, liberal student body, many (if not most) of the students seem to be very sheltered and immature, which is nothing out of the ordinary at an Ivy. However, with a reputation as the "different" Ivy, students at Brown are slightly less hoity-toity compared to the typical Ivy-Leaguer. As long as you're friendly to everyone and try keep an open mind, you're golden.

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.
