Last summer, I had the pleasure of attending Brown’s pre-college program which offers a
glimpse of college life and how life as a student truly is. To study in such a prestigious college
over the summer gave me a taste of how life at college is, having independence but at the same
time a myriad of responsibilities. Brown was a wonderful experience which taught me diverse
life lessons, which has helped alter or view thing in a different light.
The course I took whilst at the Pre-college Program was Social Psychology, for three weeks I
would attend three-hour classes on social psychology which was taught by a university
professor who taught the university level course. The course demanded advanced reading prior
to classes throughout the length of the course we engaged in several discussions,
presentations, and collaborations. Differently, from most summer programs, my academic
experience at Brown was amazing, I got to understand and learn about an intriguing new topic
in depth and fully immerse myself in the course.
Surrounded by different people with different cultures, originating from all kinds of places, Brown
was more than just a summer camp it was also a cultural experience. Surrounded by new
people both alike and unlike me, I’ve learned to open my eyes further and become more
appreciative of different points of views and diversity.
Brown was a delightful experience that I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking
to have an exciting yet academic summer where you can truly experience what studying and
living at an actual college campus is like.
