The dorms are pretty nice -- especially since the recent renovations. Lots of space and the communities from close bonds.

There are some great varsity and club teams, but games are generally poorly attended and some sport teams need work.

Providence is a great college city. RISD is right next door, which is awesome because there is a lot of interaction between the two schools and their students. The city itself is also very interesting with plenty of cool areas to explore, great places to hang out, and unique happenings around town.

The main dining halls can get exhausting and boring, however the eateries are generally pretty good and open until 2:00 am.
College Freshman 2013-11-21T08:48:54Z
Diverse in every way except for political beliefs.

Providence is often referred to as one of the best food cities in the country. Thayer has tons of cheap, late-night chains and pizza places but once you leave, there are tons of great options for any food you could want.

The administration and law enforcement generally respect the student body and will allow you to make smart decisions for yourself.

Guys & Girls:
Lots of attractive people, especially for a top-tier school.
College Freshman 2013-11-21T08:43:28Z
Frequent campus shuttles and public transportation are free, and there are Zip Cars everywhere. Also, pretty much everywhere is walkable.

It's not California, but as far as the Northeast goes, the weather stays nice.

There are a lot of spots near Thayer, which is not directly on the campus but very close and on the main college strip.

As long as you're not a complete and utter idiot about your drugs or alcohol, you'll be fine.

Brown is a school with tons of amazing people that offers many unique and valuable experiences. The variety of students is spectacular, which makes for great social opportunities and a fun atmosphere.

The frats throw a lot of great parties, but aside from that are relatively nondescript and nonintrusive.

Certain concentrations (majors at any other school) are huge and impersonal, while others are small and personal. The workload is manageable if you plan your classes right. Sciences are a bitch though.

Great undergraduate education -- arguably the best in the world. The open curriculum is amazing and I highly recommend taking advantage of it. Most professors are really nice and have office hours. Unlike other schools, professors teach most of the classes (with the exception of languages and econ, where there is a lot of TA lecturing). Some classes have TAs but they are just there as a resource.

Roads are a bitch. It's easier to just walk
College Freshman 2013-11-12T00:24:07Z
New England. Shitty weather.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T00:23:52Z
The main dining halls --Ratty and V-dub--aren't too good. They're really repetitive and the quality is mediocre. The campus eateries are alright but they get repetitive as well.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T00:22:46Z
Providence is pretty quiet. Students only really "get off the hill" to go to the mall, a club, or a concert.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T00:21:33Z
Thayer street is pretty cool. You should also check out Wickenden. There's less people there and the food is also really good. A lot less chain restaurants.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T00:20:38Z
Only thing that's missing is political diversity. There are a few conservatives here and there but Brown is overwhelmingly liberal.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T00:19:39Z
TO be frank, no one gives a shit if you drink or do drugs. I'm friends with kids who live on substance free floors and they don't really care (only one or two do). Some of the "sub-free" kids drink anyways.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T00:17:33Z
Pretty much everyone has a laptop. But if you don't have one, the libraries have a ton. Printing is a major hassle though because you can't print wirelessly without using some sort of trick
College Freshman 2013-11-12T00:16:21Z
It's college, not a hotel. That being said, Brown's housing is above average. A lot of the freshman dorms have been renovated and are really nice. Some of the upperclassmen dorms aren't that nice.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
