ACADEMIC ENVIRONMENT

"Interdisciplinary-focused Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island is dedicated to undergraduate freedom, meaning students must take responsibility for designing their own courses of study via the Open Curriculum. Students sing the praises of the academic flexibility at this Ivy League institution and the accompanying emphasis on social action. "We would not be...strong students and teachers without a proper system in place to encourage that," says one undergrad. Those who roam these hallowed halls are "constantly questioning what could make the world and our school a better place." Every person "has their own interests and pursues it without any push from others," which is why Brown can be a "very intense" place to go to school—not because students are competing academically with each other, but "because there are so many people doing so much and fighting so hard for it."
