What Students Are Saying

4.19 Average Rating
Brown has a perfect balance. Yes, the material is challenging, but it's not impossible nor is it too easy. Since Brown has an open curriculum, you choose what you want to do, and what you want to take. This makes classes so much more enjoyable, and the homework may be something you look forward to doing.
Brown Student
Attending Brown University means being challenged academically, but it also means that there are ample resources available to succeed. Taking advantage of these resources is necessary to do well in rigorous courses.

Challenging but in the perfect way
Brown Student
That depends. Brown's open curriculum leaves a lot of responsibility up to the students. You can take three classes per semester all pass-fail or you can take five per semester all for a grade in subjects with which you are not familiar. It's up to you, but that's the beauty of it. You really do design your own college experience.
