What Students Are Saying

4.18 Average Rating
Brown University is a great place to expand not only your knowledge in academia but also your personal context in the world. This university is a place of diversity and freedom. The students, faculty, staff, and courses are all wonderful attributes to the Brown community.
Vivian from South Windsor, CT
It is very hard to describe Brown in three sentences; Brown is beyond amazing. Brown is a community, a melting pot, an institution to learn, and a hub of activity, but most of all, Brown is home. The people here are friendly and diverse, with different interests and from all over the world; professors are passionate, knowledgeable, and helpful; and Brown constantly holds events for students like Heavy Petting and Fall Fest with lots of free stuff!
