Brown University is in Providence, Rhode Island with 6,670 undergraduate students and approximately 2,400 graduate students. It is a private university and one of the eight Ivy League schools. Providence is an up and coming college town with so many amazing restaurants. An interesting fact about the school is that they did away with the core curriculum, so students get to create their own curriculum to follow.
