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!
