After an afternoon's walk here, I'm suffering campus envy. Brown University is beautiful! Many nice cafes and restaurants in the area, or take a picnic up to Prospect Park and enjoy the view.

The one thing I love about this school, is it's surroundings... There isn't enough words to describe or explain it... You just have to see it for your self. You might end up transferring from your current school.

If you are anywhere near Providence (all of RI, and MA from Attleboro to Boston), you owe it to yourself to visit this historic campus. One of the oldest colleges in the nation, is amazing how the new blends with the old. It's a lesson that my current domicile, Charleston, SC, should learn. You don't have to build new old... More

If you have time, I would visit but other than the clock and the one main bldg for landmark/photos not much to see. Parking could be tricking during the week. We could not find the book store. We did not do the official tour. We just parked on a side street and strolled the campus. Lots of people on the... More
