One of the more prestigious of the IVY leagues, Brown University is most known for its strong liberal arts programs. I personally visited Brown U on several occassions and found the location of the school to be very satisfactory. Brown is located in the heart of Providence, an exciting urban setting. However, despite being located in a city the school is also a safe place. Walking at night I felt very secure because the school offers a SafeWalk for students to dorms at night free of charge for extra sense of security. My cousin attends Brown U and has nothing to say but good things. I want to go there too one day; maybe I will transfer there next year.
