    The location, the fact that it's an Ivy-league school yet it still has so much diversity and freedom, the campus, some of the classes and programs that it has to offer, and of course the open-curriculum.

    I love the name- Brown. Fills my mouth like a promise.
    The main attraction that Brown holds for me is that it seems like the place where I might really find the point of my existence- who I'm really meant to be.

    the fact that its more than a career-learning institution. it's a life-learning place.

    It's a place that encourages people to be honest and true to themselves. To be authentic. I haven't studied at Brown yet but I'm hoping that it's what I think it is.

    There are a million reasons why I could say I love Brown but if I could capture the spirit in a single, probably run-on, sentence...

    Brown is an environment, a community, which fosters the growth and development of individuals who, by nature of the institution's values, are taking ownership and responsibility for their learning, living their lives filled with passion and intent.

    Crap. I debated that for like 10 seconds in my mind and went with whom.

    I'm tired. I work from 8am to 1115. It's excusable, right?
