Q:There's a place on Angell street right off of Thayer (and I mean like right there, 50 feet from the street) that does eyebrow threading
Q:Weird question but midterms + complete lack of time got me in desperate need of a good ol' eyebrow session... know of any close salons that do a good/acceptable job? I'm desperate
Not a clue—any ideas friends?
Q:Saw the herald article with a section on @guyinyourmfa and started following it..... brilliant 😂😂😂
Q:Awesome! Thanks so much. So I guess to start out, I know what the websites say but what is it really like to attend classes? Or to walk on campus? I'm from a really small town in Colorado so I'm just trying to figure out if it's going to be too big for me. Does it feel like a giant Ivy League or more like a small college? How's the community? Is it friendly towards college students? How does brown treat it's freshman? I'm sorry if this sounds like a lot of questions but I can't afford to visit.
Well, attending classes really depends on what department you are taking it in. Generally, intro classes of popular departments tend to be big, whereas seminars and less popular concentration classes can get pretty small. Pretty much for every large lecture class you have, however, there will be a discussion section that will meet with a TA or professor. These allow for more talking (which can be a good or bad thing).
When walking around campus you discover that Brown is neither really big nor is it small. You’ll notice that you recognize a lot of people and don’t recognize a lot of others. Brown is always big enough that there is someone new to meet, but small enough that you never really feel lost in the crowd like you would at some big schools. The more involved you get, the more people you know.
Brown and the surrounding community seem to have a decent enough relationship. Brown students can kind of stay on the College Hill bubble, and up there everyone is friendly to students. Off the Hill I wouldn’t say that people are unfriendly to Brown students, they just don’t really care about them. Getting involved in the Providence community can be really rewarding, though; the city has a lot more to offer than you think.
As a freshman you really don’t have to worry about being treated any lower. Some upperclassmen may think that your early freshmen struggles are funny, but that certainly does not mean that they won’t be your friend or help you out if you need it. Upperclassmen actually love interacting with freshmen and want to give you advice. That being said, you will find your occasional asshole senior, but they’re easy to avoid.
Q:where can I put my flex points to best use?
Definitely the Campus Market, because you can buy snacks, toiletries, and (most importantly) ~f’reals~
Q:What was it like having emma watson at brown?
*shrugs* Not like anything, really.
Q:What would you say are some overused or cliched supplemental essays for the supplemental application question "why brown?" I think mine is pretty unique and specific but I'm trying to be safe AT ALL COSTS.
I mean I’m sure most people talk about the open-curriculum, I know I did. But I don’t think you should worry about what other people have or will write and just focus on being sincere.
Q:Where do I find girls that like girls?! Love your blog xxX
In life or at Brown?
Q:I'm a freshman, and having lived at Brown for over a month now, I just want to tell all those prospective students asking questions the things that have most surprised me here: 1. There are not nearly as many hipsters and potheads here as you would think and 2. There are way more athletes here than you would think and 3. Basically everyone is amazing and I'm having the time of my life :D go Bruno!!
#3 is most certainly correct
As to #1 and #2 I think what people usually don’t expect is that there is an abundance of all types of people and there really is no “stereotypical” Brown student or trait. Well, besides being awesome. That’s very Brown.
Q:I visited Brown. I ate a muffin from the Blue Room. I'm in love.
Q:how is the brown community reacting to ebola?
We’re not. Fingers crossed no one gets it.
