3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Depends on the weekend! Sometimes everything happens one weekend and other weekends nothing is going on. The parties are usually fun.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Few healthy options at most places. While Andrews has different food options, most of them are fried and/or greasy. The Vdub is not open on weekends, which is inconvenient. The only things available at Andrews after around 7 or 9 (don't remember which) are pizza and lo mein, which are not healthy. The salads there also aren't great, and the sushi is wildly expensive. The fruit is usually pretty banged up too. The Ratty can be okay, but usually the meals aren't great.

Campus Housing: A lot of the dorms are great, but there are also several that are quite old and show that; others are very ugly and do not seem to be the best living spaces. Many dorms are also very far from main campus, especially sophomore and junior dorms. However, they are all comfortable in my experience and the nice dorms are incredible.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Many students are part of a team, but there are also a good number of students who are not part of a team and are unaware.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Being only a first year, I am not sure exactly how off-campus housing works, and how good it is for students.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Thayer Street is very convenient in location and many varieties

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Since it is need-based, I am still in the process of looking for outside scholarship money, to help for my next three years.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Wide variety of parties, from athletic team parties, out clubbing, social organization parties.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not the best quality of food. Fruit is usually not ripe. Not a lot of healthy food options (limited types of fruits available). Should rotate fruit availability because I am allergic to almost every fruit they offer.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Good range in location options. Some housing on campus is very outdated.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I just started i was already suggested to go to tutoring.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is my second week. Im beginning with a new teacher. The teachers need to teach teach and repeat teaching if students dont understand

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The basic reason i came to this school is the quality of it.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a restaurant next to the school. The place looks old and unclean.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I tend to obey policies. I believe in doing things right.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: FASA doesnt cover enough. I have a hard time applying for scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The best think i like it's all in one building size. You dont have to walk a mile to get to class and its only one class at a time. The length of class is short. The ability of the teacher to focus on students and teaching i mean teaching.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most people are required to live on campus anyway, and you need special permission to live elsewhere, so most people just remain on campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options around Thayer Street, or all around Providence if you're willing to venture a little farther.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration often does things that students don't agree with, but students petition or protest to change policies frequently and student voices are often heard.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you are very poor, you get a lot of aid and if you are very rich, you are able to pay. It's the people in the middle who are not always getting the aid they need.

Party Scene: The party scene is what you make of it. There is always something to do, but you can definitely always find people to just hang out with on the weekend.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are very spacious, many are recently renovated, and the sense of community you have with residents is unbeatable.

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

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.
