Pure liberal arts in the "I like hangingAverageBiology
Pure liberal arts in the "I like hanging out at coffee houses" sense. Not much drive among students here since there are really no graduation requirements. Pretty easy to get through, but tough to get a job because students are not qualified for anything. Good for the entitled set who don't have to worry and can suck on the family for the rest of their lives.

Brown is an amazingQuite BrightLinguistics
Brown is an amazing place. I have been so happy here (and when i haven't been for whatever personal reason, Psych Services is really great and generally quite helpful). If I could make every university more like Brown, I would.

Over the past three years at Brown, IQuite BrightPhilosophy
Over the past three years at Brown, I have met tons of brilliant people--classmates and friends who study with you all night long, and professors who are available in office hours each week for three hours longer than they promised because they want to make sure everybody has a chance to succeed. I am fortunate to have benefited from Brown's generous financial aid, which made it possible for me to attend.
