Student & Graduate Reviews

"Brown University campus is great for students who want a larger campus than a small liberal arts school but smaller than a state school. Its undergraduate student body is around 8,000 which allows you to interact with students from around the world. Its biggest strength is that it has a diverse student body with a wide range of interests. We have a passionate student body that actively participates in student organizations. We constantly have amazing speakers come to campus. If you are an inquisitive student that loves learning, this is a great school! Brown University has recently expanded its financial aid program and it has become more generous for low-income and middle-class students. Check out their financial aid website for updates."

"I met many wonderful mentors in research and elsewhere. Everyone was always open to having a conversation about their work, though you sometimes needed to be persistent as they are busy. I also appreciated all the student organizations that allowed me to find people who shared my interests and explore different career areas. It is a competitive place, but if you seek out mentors who understand you and ask for help when you need it, it's a good experience."

"Brown is an amazing place. If ever you get into, go for Brown.. Go Bruno :) CS dept is like a great community in itself. Because of Brown's smaller student intake, most people know everyone in CS dept by name and person. :) Nelson gym is a great place to hang out too!"

"Brown University is the perfect place for undergraduate studies. Your classmates will challenge you, your professors will be well-established and informative, and there is a great social environment as well. The main downsides are in regards to food and housing, Brown has a ton of money and this could be improved, as could financial aid."

"Brown University is a great location to get an education because there are so many resources around. The city of Providence is a 5-10 minute walk away from campus, the faculty are world-renowned, other great cities (Boston, NYC) are extremely easy to get to. The networking opportunities are awesome. There are plenty of job/post-grad opportunities once you graduate. The learning environment is second to none. There is also a healthy social environment. While there may not be 50-100 thousand screaming fans at a football game, there is a substantial amount of opportunity to get to know people intimately. There is a close bond that forms within each class that is possible due to the low amount of numbers. If a small community is something that you like, then Brown offers it. If you would rather have larger interactions, there are plenty of places near Brown where that can happen."

"Brown University was an excellent college. I highly enjoyed the open curriculum which afforded the opportunity of students to pursue a major and craft a curriculum of their choice. Consequently, we saw many double majors. I personally needed it because I was pursuing a rigorous degree and I was able pursue refreshing courses at the same time as my neuroscience courses to broaden my experience. The feel on campus was always diverse and everyone was open to conversations of their liking. I highly recommend Brown University."

"Brown is academically rigorous and the most independent, self-motivated students do the best there. The other students and the faculty are supportive and challenging, making it a wonderful place to explore intellectual interests and passions."
