"Every school I attended growing up had the same mascot: a bear. Naturally, it only made sense to attend Brown! In all seriousness, I chose Brown because of the freedom I have here. I moved away from home when I was 14, so I have always been a very independent person. I had a core curriculum in high school and knew I could never do that again. .
.
The academic freedom that comes with the open curriculum is perfect for me. No one forces me to take specific classes which means that I can always take courses that genuinely fascinate me. My favorite class so far was "Bleeding Heart Libertarianism" with Professor Tomasi. As a political science concentrator, it was important for me to understand other types of political thought and I was very interested in learning about Libertarianism on a deeper level. Everyday, my classmates and I engaged in challenging and constructive dialogues about political theory and it was very exciting. I looked forward to going to class and learned more than I thought possible in one setting. Professor Tomasi, like all of my other professors, was a walking library of knowledge! .
.
I love being able to explore a wide range of subjects here at Brown. I am as far from STEM as they come, the only science I do is political, and I was notoriously bad at math in high school, but because of the open curriculum, I decided to try out an engineering course. "What if this is is my calling and I was always too afraid to tackle the material?", I thought. Well, now I KNOW that is not my calling, but I'm happy to have had the opportunity to challenge myself and try something new. Brown is a very special place and I could not be happier to call it my home." #whybrown #whybrownuniversity

Thought school was out? College hill is still bustling with students doing research, internships, and summer classes! We even have high school students joining us through @brownprecollege. Visit us this summer at #summeratbrown

Meet Summer Ambassador Ryan Bronson ’19! When she’s not giving tours with us, she’s also doing research in evolutionary genetics with Brown’s Evolutionary Biology Department. .
.
"I went to a big public school with large classes filled with students who didn't want to be there and teachers who were burnt out. I chose Brown because I love learning and I wanted to go to college with other people who love learning. At Brown, I have the freedom to explore my intellectual curiosities, and I am surrounded by people doing the same. In my classes, everyone is excited to learn, and the professors are engaged and passionate, which is a huge departure from my high school experience. .
.
I have always been interested in biology and math, so by studying Applied Math-Biology, I have the option to do both! Because Brown is so undergraduate-focused, I have had opportunities to do research in an evolutionary genetics lab, and work as an undergraduate teaching assistant. Both of these experiences enhanced my STEM education at Brown, and helped me realize my passion for teaching and my interest in being a professor one day!
.
.
I also have the time and course freedom to discover new passions and engage my peripheral interests. I've taken classes ranging from Political Economy of African Development to the American Presidency to Vaccine Development! Brown is the perfect place to try something new.” #WhyBrown

Meet our second Summer Ambassador, Zev Izenberg ’20! .
.
"I’m glad I stumbled wide-eyed into Brown a year ago because every day I spend on this campus, I feel freer than ever. I’ve spent my time here exploring new subjects - computer science, urban studies, etc., as well as practicing my passions, like visual art. But the most important parts of Brown for me are all the interesting and friendly people to meet and the atmospheric energy of working hard and having fun. The highlight of my first year here was stepping onto a Wriston Quad full of friendly faces during Spring Weekend. This is a place where where I can spend the first half of the day grinding out some challenging java algorithms and the second half covered in ribbons at a blacklit play, one where I can work my butt off but still kick back at the end of the day. It’s an opportunity to discover what I really want in life." #WhyBrown

Meet our Summer Ambassador Team! We’re so excited to have these nine students working with the Admissions Office this summer. Our Ambassadors are on campus leading tours and information sessions to help prospective students and their families understand #WhyBrown. Meet our first Ambassador feature, Keri Brooks! .

"My parents mock that I chose Brown because of the lampposts (with the outlets in the bottom). It's true that I did, but to me it's more than that. I was fascinated with how Brown took something that's functional on its own, but added a little twist to it that makes it all the better. And this twist on the otherwise common is not limited to just the lampposts, but is reflected in every detail of Brown's identity. For one, the University listened to students' ideas and redesigned an already prolific and respected curriculum into an open curriculum that allows each individual to pave their unique path to a degree. Brown admits students who are already incredible academics, but introduces them to freedom of study and a myriad of personal benefits that can come from having a choice. .
.
At first I was afraid of the freedom. Any taste of liberation is terrifying at the start, but essential to get to the next beginning. I started my time at Brown wanting to become a Biomedical Engineer, but fell in love with my Music and Arts classes. Exploring Art has always been something that I've engaged with, but I didn't see myself making it more than an extracurricular. ​
.
.
Next year I will graduate with a degree in Modern Culture and Media, with recognition that the privilege of choosing my education has likely positioned me in a direction that will be more fulfilling and true to my interests. When I applied to college, I thought that it was important to know exactly who I am and to be able to convey my "brand" to anyone who meets me. Going into my senior year, I have learned that you may never know completely who you are. To have a "brand" is to limit yourself, what you can accomplish, and the details of your character. Brown has added a twist to my perception of the world that has revealed doors I likely wouldn't have noticed three years ago."

#WhyBrown? Viet Nguyen '17 talks about how being able to give student-input to how the University operates has been an empowering part of his college experience.
.
.
Outgoing president for Brown's University Council of Students and heavily involved in Brown's first-gen community, Viet was one of the student leaders behind Brown's most recent decision to waive all application fees for low-income students:
.
.
“I think especially here, Brown provides such a big platform for students to do great work. Students have immense say in how the university operates. We’re on every University committee, and I think that administrators know that the students have the University’s best interest at heart, and have the passion to have policies push forward. The greatest example is the open curriculum-it was started by a student, and now it’s the defining feature of Brown. I think that says a lot of how a student can change the University.”

#WhyBrown? We just celebrated 125 years of women being admitted to Brown.
.
.
Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen ‘ 67 was the featured speaker for Brown’s 125 Years of Women conference, which took place this past weekend. In her speech, Yellen traced the progress of women and their roles in the US economy.
.
.
"Since 1891, women have made tremendous strides in their ability to pursue their dreams of education and meaningful work and to support themselves and their families. In pursuing these goals, women have helped improve working conditions for all workers and have been a major factor in America's prosperity over the past century and a quarter.”
.
.
Yellen accentuates despite the current obstacles women face in the workplace, the future success of women will be critical to the future success of the US economy.
.
.
“Despite this progress, evidence suggests that when remain unable to achieve their goals. If these obstacles persist, we will squander the potential of many of our citizens and incur a substantial loss to the productive capacity of our economy at a time when the aging of the population and weak productivity are already weighing on economic growth."
.
.
Brown University is proud to be represented by so many successful women ever since Brown’s Pembroke College for women merged with the University in 1971. Brown alumni working in business, education, social entrepreneurship, arts, and STEM were all invited to the conference to talk about their experiences with participants.

#WhyBrown? Being able to pursue all your interests with the open curriculum. Jenna Tishler ‘20 talks about double concentrating in two very different fields, Computer Science and Visual Arts, and feeling empowered by Brown’s STEAM community.
.
.
.
“I love having the support to pursue interdisciplinary studies and projects, particularly in the form of a double concentration in two seemingly different fields: Computer Science and Visual Arts. Brown really encourages interdisciplinary pursuits, and best of all, there is a strong community of people here who are passionate about two or more varied fields. I have even found a community in specifically CS/Art majors, especially in the organization cyberSTEAM, a division of Brown+RISD STEAM that does projects that combine computer science and art. Unlike in high school, at Brown I feel like my two interests coalesce, instead of feeling like I am stretched between two different worlds. Also, Brown has so many amazing resources that have helped me so much so far, like academic coaches, the CRC, deans of the college, Meiks, DUG events, and upperclassmen in my concentrations.”
