Greek Life: Greek life is a part of campus life, but it is not essential.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe walking around campus at night, and if you don't there are plenty of resources (Safewalk) for you.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are amazing, and professors are passionate about their fields. Classes tend to be smaller, which helps you form bonds with classmates and professors.

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are some of the most newly renovated. After that it's a mixed bag. Program houses are great if you want to meet people like you and get out of the housing lottery!

Greek Life: Sororities are becoming more popular on campus; therefore, it's getting more competitive to join one. I chose to rush and join a sorority because I could see the girls I met during the process becoming lifelong friends.

Athletics: Athletics aren't very popular overall, but you certainly decide your own level of involvement. Personally, I usually only go to athletic events when I know one of the players.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Of all of the colleges to which I applied, Brown was the only one that felt like home. If anything, I'd wish I applied Early Decision!

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you like to party, there's a thriving party scene that you will find a home in. If you don't like to party, no worries--there are plenty of other things for you to do.

Academics: Absolutely incredible. Challenging academics but the challenge forces you to expand your ways of thinking and reach new depths of understanding.

Diversity: We are a diverse and liberal body as related to ethnic/racial diversity, and we are generally very accepting of people of all races, sexual orientation, and religion. However, there is a strong anti-conservative feeling on campus, and most of the student body is very liberal and vocal about it.

Drug Safety: If you like drugs, whether they're hard or soft, you'll have access to them and the opportunity to try them. If you don't like drugs, you can avoid seeing most drugs (except marijuana), and no one thinks less of you if you don't partake. Alcohol is prevalent on campus, but not that many students drink regularly.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: With a degree from Brown, you can pretty much work anywhere you want.

Greek Life: I like the greek life on campus and the people in it

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football isn't great, but other sports are.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes, student body, and energy is amazing

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been some robberies on the borders of campus. The middle is fine, but the side streets can be sketchy alone, and there needs to be more campus security on the edges of campus. It's mostly due to the location (Providence).

Overall Experience: Even in my largest classes, professors clearly love teaching. They all want you to learn and succeed, and they will do everything in their power to make it happen.

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.
