Reasons to attend and to not attend Brown University

To Attend

  • “The open curriculum and lack of requirements you have to take. I think that really means that people who are in a class want to be there because there are no base requirements. It also lets you explore different course options. If you’re not sure what you want to do, you can take whatever classes you want.”
  • “There are Engaged Scholars courses here where you have to do a community service component where you have to do some of the stuff you are studying and I think that’s really unique and great.”
  • “The collaborative energy. The student body is so friendly and collaborative, it changes the college experience.”
  • “I think people are very talented and intelligent and you can really find all sorts of students here. Everyone has something to say which is really nice.”

To Not Attend

  • “I think that the open curriculum is great, but it can overwhelming if you don’t know what you want to study or don’t know what you want to do. Having a lack of direction can be tough.”
  • “The political correctness culture.”
  • “Absolute lack of school spirit in athletics. If you’re into sports, it’s going to be disappointing.”
  • “If you’re looking for a school that’s extremely pre-professional, Brown is not that type of place. People come to Brown because they want to experience college and learn for the sake of learning.”
