brown is awesome because it is very challenging and definitely a rigorous education, but students generally work together as opposed to competing against each other. the spirit on campus is one of acceptance of everything and everyone and anyone can find a place where they feel like they belong. people are very down to earth and care a lot about helping others and improving the world!

The perfect word for Brown is nonpareil, as in it is completely unmatched in the world of colleges. I honestly feel that there is such a collection of classes, students, opportunities, and experiences unique to only Brown that makes it special beyond belief. The freedom and diversity here allow for self discovery, world-class education, and a sense of belonging.
