Pro: Brown has provided me with the ability to access my local community and engage in health care access for Latino communities. Con: Brown needs to continuously improve there education on barriers to health care access for minorities and people of low socioeconomic backgrounds.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

I have enjoyed my time at Brown. The professors are amazing. Their dedication reflects in their teaching. The school does all it can to make the students' lives as fulfilling as possible. Shuttles are always available and the surrounding areas around the main campus have many restaurants. The main college green is beautiful. The old buildings bring a special type of nostalgia to the campus. I haven't come across to many cons. I can't speak of other departments, but mine is well established and efficient.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

This program has a lot of advantages and a lot of disadvantages. PROS: a super-available faculty, a close-knit community, a growing network of alums, Providence is great, and the program is highly selective, every student is investigated to their souls under a microscope. Some of the faculty are truly outstanding. A couple of them are duds. The program is still growing, and changing for the better; the downside is that the students are the guinea pigs for the improvements. CONS: the workload is insane, there is no time to rest or relax or have a social life beyond your classmates. The program is insanely expensive, they help out with scholarships when possible, but it's never enough, so every student here is either rich or in debt. As a result, the program is not as diverse as other programs.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Master of Electrical Engineering in Brown university is a great program, but not as much strong as other programs in Brown university (for example Computer Science) Its still under development but could give the student all the chances for success, and could provide him with various research and work opportunities.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2014

The professors are willing to help and the program is small, which makes it easier to connect with the professors. There are a lot of opportunities to find internships and work on projects in Research Centers.

Pros: A very good faculty for applied microeconomics. Excellent peer group and study culture. Cons: The temperatures can be very low during the winters. Social life is not particularly great. However, close enough to Boston for socializing purposes.
