I've heard Brown is the most laid-back and less cutthroat with each other in the Ivy Leagues, as well as having the least stereotypes. How true is this?
How is the frat/sorority life? Does a party atmosphere exist at all? What do most people do for fun? Is it an extremely intellectual atmosphere or is it more, "I'm smart but I want to have fun not discuss things"...

I've been here a couple days and let me tell you, there is a definite party atmosphere. Email me for details.

Whatever you are looking for, You can find here all it takes is some seeking out. Somewhere near 10% of men rush a frat. There are also program houses dedicated to literature, international students, French and Hispanic culture, gaming and technology. If you're looking for intellectuals, there is no shortage. Ikf you are looking for parties, there is no shortage.

Yes, it is definitely the party Ivy. Grades are optional and the supply of beer is endless

Madeline once again relies on no more than half-baked truths and assumptions. It is true generally however that Brown, Stanford and Dartmouth have the happiest students. [Source PR]

Umm... I'm here, so I'm not relying on "half-baked truths and assumptions," and I'll say this: If you want to party, you'll have no problem here at Brown!

"I'll say this: If you want to party, you'll have no problem here at Brown"
Half-baked truths is better than total ignorance, which is seems to be the order of the day for dcircle.

Well the facts are that:
Brown by the statistics is not the school with the most alcohol arrests/refs/injuries.
Brown does not have a large Greek scene as compared to Penn or Dartmouth which is typically associated with drinking.
If you want to party anywhere, you'll find it. If you don't want to, you'll avoid it. End of Story. I would think in any school of thousands finding a group which likes to party would hardly be an issue at 99% of schools in the land.

Is it true that Brown has the most liberal student body politically speaking? Is it stifling for a more conservative student?

I don't know i'll ask the (only republican on this floor) guy down the hall...
"hey, [insert name] is there anything stifling about being around a liberal student body?"
"um... no. everybody's cool... i wish people wouldn't bitch so much about the Patriot Act, and the Iraq war... totally justified. Go Bush Cheney '04"
Yeah we're really liberal. I just went and heard Howard Dean speak... that was awesome. But this is an exceptionally tolerant campus. There are people here who refuse to engage in any type of discussion... but I'm over that. this is the best college in the world. come to brown.

oh to answer the first guy... i have intellectual discussions til 4 in the morning. it's really fun when you go to class at 9... but i'm over that too.
