  • Beautiful campus grounds and buildings. Grounds are open to the public and are just the right size so it's not intimidating for those who cannot afford to walk a lot. A leisurely stroll should not last more than an hour. Free tours on weekdays. Street parking available for a fee.
  • Excellent place! People are open minded and kind.
  • We were here on a college tour. Jasmine (? Her last name escapes me) was our tour guide and she did a thorough and fabulous job at explaining the history, motto, and course studies of Brown University. She was very knowledgeable about the student body and overall campus life. Our students though young, had excellent questions and inquiries about campus curriculum, life. The students have a lot of autonomy in the courses or rather the concentrations they take. Their voices are really powerful in the education and experience they receive. Brown is a large campus with a great blend of historical and modern buildings. The most important history that Jasmine shared with our group was that Brown was built by African Americans that were still held as slaves. Before the founders even established Brown University, the land was all owned by indigenous Native tribes. Who had their land taken over by these ruthless English enslavers. The tuition is very high on Google you'll see numbers like 48k for 2015. Now students enrolling in the school are paying slightly under 70k if you're staying on campus. There are also additional fees associated with the tuition. However, if a family makes less than 60k and their child qualifies with phenomenal grades then the child gets a full scholarship.
