Brown University Reviews
Brown University is an amazing place to go for undergrad. There's simply nowhere else that I'd rather spend four years learning and growing as a person. The open curriculum allows for lots of exploration and risk-taking in the classroom, and this culture bleeds into student life as well. The environment here is very relaxed and collaborative, and the students here are kind, accepting, and fun. And coming from a SoCal kid, the weather isn't even that bad! I've only been at Brown for one year, but I'm so glad I made the choice to come here when I was deciding between colleges last April.
Brown is the most academically enriched, passionate place I've ever been. I'm entering my final year as an undergraduate, and have realized over the years that everyone I know at Brown is studying exactly the thing they most love. Many great speakers come to Brown, allowing students the chance to branch out from what they are familiar with and become well-rounded and knowledgeable about the world. I will say that as an Ivy League, it's inordinately wealthy and sometimes the attitudes that come along with high wealth like that can be frustrating. However, Brown will give you a challenging and creative academic experience, and you're likely to find a community you love as well.
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!
