Why I chose Brown...I was first introduced to the school because my Dad went here. As I
began my college search it dawned on me how much I loved the learning environment, the people, and the approach to education. The location of the school is so perfect. When I decided I wanted to play lacrosse in college the girls on the team are what sold me.
The thing I like most about Brown...I love the people here. The diversity of the student population is so exciting, and eye opening. The approach to education here is to impart knowledge and understanding of a massive range of subjects, rather than attain a high gpa.
Superpower I would want (why)...Every time you talked to someone you would make them inexplicably happy.
