Brown University, Providence Reviews

  • An amazing Ivy League school historical to the city of Providence. Many architectural builds and modern buildings. Some parking spaces that range 3$/hour and 15$/all day . There are about 7 public lots. Very good tour area

  • Amazing school in the Ivy League. Based in Providence,Rhode Island. Founded 1764.

  • Maud Mandel stops research and studies if they might be unpopular with the public. Imagine if this guy was in charge back when Copernicus was figuring out the Earth went around the sun, science suffers great losses when ideas like this are allowed... Universities should be out to seek knowledge no matter whose feelings it hurts. Truth is often uncomfortable but that's no reason to embrace lies. If you care about getting a real education that's not directed by social justice you probably should go somewhere else. If you are into sacrificing reality for people's feelings then maybe this is the right college for you.

  • At last after 50 years and hundreds of years of Maori knowledge scientists form Brown University have found the scientific proof of predicting volcanic activity in New Zealand . Maori knowledge is native knowledge only past on by speech Auckland New Zealand .So grateful for their research .

  • Beautiful campus grounds and buildings. Grounds are open to the public and are just the right size so it's not intimidating for those who cannot afford to walk a lot. A leisurely stroll should not last more than an hour. Free tours on weekdays. Street parking available for a fee.
