As sophomores have (hopefully) finally declared their concentrations, they’re asking themselves many questions: Did I make the right choice? Do I actually like Orgo? What are my odds of finding lust or love within my concentration?
Below are the top ten concentrations at Brown broken down by gender enrollment. All information was obtained from the Registrar, which does not account for non-binary genders. This is the first part of a series that will explore identities within concentrations.
10. Applied Math-Econ: This concentration is for the brave of the brave. Currently, 109 students have declared this concentration. The breakdown is heavily skewed towards males, constituting 65 percent of students enrolled.
9 and 8. Political Science and International Relations: With 156 concentrators in each, Brown is buzzing with political jargon at any given time of the day. Political Science is pretty evenly split, with 83 females and 73 males. International Relations, however, is heavily dominated by females who make up nearly 67 percent of all concentrators. Who says we can’t have a female president?

This is when you would call Hangover Helpers
We’ve all been there. The splitting headache. The sea of red cups. The anonymous vomit in the corner. Last night you threw the wildest rager. But now its Sunday, and you’ve got to deal with a hangover and a destroyed post-party house. To some this might seem like a nightmare, but to a couple students at University of Colorado students, this was a business opportunity. Hangover Helpers, a student run business, brings fellow students and party-throwers breakfast burritos and Gatorade and will also clean up the party mess, all for a price of course — $15 per roommate. So, any students in Engineering and New Ventures, here’s a possible idea for a final!
