4 College Freshman

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.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not really big here. A lot of chapters got disbanded/kicked off campus, so the parties are usually pretty low-key.

Athletics: No one really pays attention to then unless there is free gear involved. Club sports are super easy to get into though and they offer a good source of friendships.

Overall Experience: Come into it with an open mind. No school is perfect and there is a range of personalities to meet.

Athletics: Athletes only hang out with other athletes. They were involved in a cheating scandal on campus in the fall of 2015. Athletic facilities are pretty nice.

Party Scene: It's hit or miss. Could be worse. There is always something happening every weekend. IF campus is boring, there are the clubs/bars.

5 College Freshman

Academics: So many course options and the professors really care about the subjects.

Drug Safety: There are drugs fi you want drugs. If you don't want drugs, you won't see drugs -- although the smell of marijuana on campus is pretty ubiquitous.

Campus Housing: Housing is relatively good freshman year. It gradually worsens.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health services does the best it can. I generally feel safe on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had a pretty great first semester. Brown itself isn't the greatest institution; the student body has made the Brown experience for me. Brown needs to work on its diversity action plan and actually listen to the students of color if it wants to strive to be an actual inclusive school.

Overall Experience: 95% of premed students from the class of 2015 were accepted to medical school, so I think there is definitely some weight added from having a degree from Brown.

Diversity: 55% of students do not receive financial aid - keep that in mind. Classism is real.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Registration period can be stressful. Brown is not an easy school. Also, if you're someone who would prefer -/+ grading system, Brown doesn't offer that.

Health & Safety: It's okay. DPS alerts keep you aware.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I ended up not really liking the classes I took this semester. I think part of that was having expectations that differed from the realities of those courses. I am really excited for the classes I am taking next semester, however. There is certainly no guarantee that you'll be in a small class your freshman year unless you enroll in a first year seminar course.

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.
