What Students Are Saying

4.25 Average Rating
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!
Danielle from North Potomac, MD
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.
