With Deadline Day around the corner, here is BlogDH’s latest installment in
shameless Brown promotion Brown-related posts for the dearly beloved Class of 2019. Last week, two BlogDH staff members sat down with an assortment of pre-frosh and asked them what questions they had about Brown. Here are our answers:
How has your perspective of Brown changed over the years?
Julia: I came to Brown thinking it was an incredible place because it had incredible academic opportunities. That’s definitely true, but I realized within my first semester that what makes Brown incredible are wildly passionate and creative students. I see Brown now as a community instead of an institution.
What is your least favorite part of Brown?
Kevin: Personally, my least favorite part of Brown is the fact that it can become so easy to get consumed by the present moment. As soon as you arrive on campus, there are so many amazing and exciting things occurring all around you that it can be hard to look past the parameters of the Main Green. Providence is a really interesting city; however, because there’s so much going on around campus, it can be hard to pull away from College Hill and make the trek downtown. The same applies to the clubs you join and the activities you get involved with; once you invest your time and energy, it can become really easy to be blind to all of the other exciting happenings around campus. In other words, it’s really easy to lose track of all of the incredible opportunities that Brown and Providence have to offer because there will inevitably be so much going on in your life as soon as you get on campus.
What’s the best part of the Open Curriculum?
