College Tour '10: Brown University
From a parent
People go there looking for Emma Watson [of Harry Potter fame]. And if they can’t find Emma Watson, they want Scout Willis [daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore], and if they can’t find Scout Willis, they look for other people on the celebrity list. Brown is known for that.
But we loved Brown because there are no requirements. You can craft your own course of study, and you don’t have to take a language, which is wonderful. It could be an ideal place for someone who doesn’t know what they want to take but has a strong level of intellectual curiosity.
We had a wonderful tour guide, and the admissions guy at the information session had a great sense of humor. He stood up and said, “Please make sure there are no typos in your applications. For instance, please don’t spell Brown Y-A-L-E.”
This is one in a series of reports that parents and students are contributing about their campus tours this spring. If you have visited a school and would like to participate, email me a brief report at firstname.lastname@example.org.
