在Brown University布朗大学就读是怎样一番体验,【携尔留学】给大家翻译整理了布朗大学的留学体验,以供参考。

1.Academics: Brown really does live up to its prestigious name when it comes to education. Answering this after completing one semester of college, I can truly say that I have learned an unbelievable amount since arriving here. Its science department is amazing. Its math department is amazing. (As an engineering major I cannot speak for other areas of concentration). The only criticism I have is for its engineering department. Its intro course is new and still undergoing some renovation issues, but higher level courses have a reputation for being amazing. If you are planning to be an engineer and can stand the first year, then the curriculum will be great.

In terms of choosing courses, we get a "shopping period." We can "sample" as many classes as we want during this period (usually the first two weeks into a semester) to get a feel for the class. After this period you can officially register for the course. This gives students the opportunity to really explore classes and to get to know them before deciding on whether or not to take the course.

Brown's open curriculum also gives you chances students at other schools do not receive. Aside from taking required courses towards your major and fulfilling a not-very-intense writing requirement, you can take literally any class you want to take and qualify for. This allows you really shape a college curriculum that you will love. This allows you to explore areas that you did not know you liked. Heck, it might even shape the major you eventually choose! All in all, Brown has an outstanding curriculum.

学术:提到教育水平方面,布朗大学的优质教育水平真的是实至名归。在一个学期的学习以后,我就可以这么有体会地回答,是因为来到这里之后我真的学到了很多知识。这里的科学学院很棒,数学学院也很棒。(作为一个工程专业的学生,我没法对其他方面的重点评头品足)。我觉得唯一的不足就是工程学院了,它的入门课程是新制定的,并且在持续更新,但是高水平的课程很知名。如果你打算申请工业工程学院,又能熬过第一年的话,后面的课程就会非常棒。

至于选课方面,我们有一个类似“购物”的过程:尽可能多地给班级课程设定“样本”,以便最大限度的感受这个课程(通常在每学期开学后的前两周)。这个阶段过后,你就可以正式注册申请课程了。这给了学生实际的机会,在课前就了解课程知识,探究课程,以便决定是不是要学习某一门课程。

布朗大学开放的课程设置也给学生带来了很多其他学校所没有的机会。除了学习你专业有关的必修课程以及完成一个不太难的写作任务之外,你几乎也可以申请任何你想学习的班级课程。这能让你探寻自己喜欢又不太了解的领域。这甚至能改变你最终选择的专业。总之,布朗大学的课程安排极其出色。

2.Academics: The academics at Brown are very undergraduate-oriented. I have had no problem exploring the different departments for possible concentrations, and I even have a few friends creating independent concentrations. Brown's academic excellence is due to the open curriculum: outside of whatever concentration you choose, there are no required classes. This freedom, coupled with the resources Brown offers, is unmatched.

学术:布朗大学非常重视本科教育。我可以毫不费力地在各个学院穿梭,寻求可能的领域,我有一些朋友他们自己自己创建了独立的侧重各领域。布朗大学杰出的学术水平来自它开放性的课程设置:不论你选择什么领域,都没有什么必须的班级课程。这种自由度,以及布朗大学丰富的资源,都是无与伦比的。

3.Academics: Excellent academics are the cornerstone of a Brown education. The Open Curriculum distinguishes Brown from other top schools, allowing students to take any classes they want as long as they satisfy requirements for a concentration.

学术:卓越的学术是布朗大学教育的核心。开放性的课程安排是布朗大学区别于其他顶级学校的地方,允许学生学习任何他们想学的课程,只要他们能符合某一个核心领域的要求。

4.Academics: Brown has amazing academics- once you commit to a concentration there are plenty of resources to help you in whatever ways you might need.

学术:布朗大学有超好的学术,一旦你决定进入了某个重点领域,就有你所需要的各种丰富资源帮助你研究。

5.Academics: Brown in one word is "unique" and this extends to academics. Every single students academic plan will differ from the next thanks to the open curriculum.

学术:布朗大学,一句话总结就是“与众不同”,也包括学术方面。每一个学生的学术计划都独树一帜,这多亏了它开放性的课程设置。

6.Majors: I have not yet declared a major, but I have not heard of anyone's having issues declaring one. I don't think there are any majors you have to apply to get into (except an Independent Concentration, which you have to get approved for), usually it's just if you want to major in something and can pass the required classes then you're fine.

专业:我还没选专业,但从没听过有任何人在选择专业方面出现过什么问题。我觉得你不用申请很多个专业(除非是一个很独立的重点领域,那你要获得批准才行)。通常如果你想选择某个专业,只要能通过必备课程的要求,就可以了。

7.Majors: I am incredibly happy with my program. I think that being an Independent Concentrator has been an important facet of my experience at Brown, and it has allowed me to take the fullest advantage of the New Curriculum.

专业:我非常非常喜欢我的专业项目。我觉得成为一个独立重点领域的发起者是我在布朗大学很重要的经历,这能让我最大化地利用新课程安排。

8.Majors: Internship opportunities at Brown, for me, have been wonderful. Good pay, medium time commitment, and reasonable responsibilities.

专业:对我而言,布朗大学的实习机会一直都很棒。工资不低,工作时间适中,职权分配合理。

9.Diversity: Most people at Brown would tell you that we are willing to discuss at length most types of diversity - in regards to race, religion, politics, sexuality, gender identity, etc. We remain hesitant to address socioeconomic status. To be clear, Brown is home to many lower-class and middle class students, making it very diverse. But like other top schools, Brown draws disproportionately from very wealthy families. This economic divide is the last taboo on campus.

多样性:布朗大学的很多人都会给你说:我们非常想谈一谈我们这里的多样性——种族、信仰、政治和性别认同等等。在社会经济地位方面我们不方便多说。要说明的是,布朗大学里有很多低收入和中等收入的家庭的学生,这使学校非常多元化。但和其他顶尖学校一样,布朗大学也吸引了一些不成比例的富有家庭的学生,但是在学校里大家都不在意这个。

10.Diversity: Brown is extremely diverse! You are bound to meet people from all walks of life (ethnic, sexual, religious, national). Everyone is also very nice and accepting of differences. In general, it's just really cool to learn in such a diverse, beautiful place! If the College could improve, it would be in the areas of political and economic diversity though. Most students are left-leaning, and in general, students are pretty well off (especially transfers and internationals, since Brown is need-aware for them). That's pretty typical though

多样性:布朗大学多样性丰富多彩。你一定会遇到来自各种背景的人(种族、性取向、宗教信仰和国籍)。每个人都很友善也都很乐于接纳别人。总之,在这样一个充满多元化的地方学习真的很酷。如果学校更进一步的话,在政治理念和经济背景方面会有差异化。很多学生思想有点偏左,总之,很多学生都不错(尤其是转学生和国际生需要了解布朗大学的这一点特色)。

11.Diversity: Brown University is a liberal institution, which is not only reflected in the open curriculum, but also in the diversity of students in terms of ethnicity, sexual orientation, and religion. Students have varying beliefs and values, but they share the same all-inclusive and curious demeanor that epitomizes the open-minded Brown student. Students engage in intelligent conversations about oppression, discrimination, and inequality inside and outside of the classroom, ultimately providing people with greater knowledge of the experiences of their peers and leading them to make attitudinal changes. Be prepared to have your existing beliefs/notions challenged over and over again!

多样性:布朗大学是个自由的园地,这不仅体现在它开放的课程,还体现在学生的多样性方面——比如种族、性取向和宗教信仰等等。学生们有各种不同的信仰和价值观,但是他们拥有同样的包容性和好奇心,这就是布朗大学学生开放思想的缩影。学生都喜欢进行富有智慧的谈话——关于压迫和歧视,以及教室内外的不平等现象,最终给人们贡献他们同龄人的知识,引导人们在态度上做出改变。准备好让自己的信仰和观念接受一次又一次的挑战吧。

12.Administration: Brown is the absolute best when it comes to campus strictness. So long as you are keeping yourself and others safe, you can basically do whatever you want and be whoever you want to be without any administrative or social pressure. Brown is only strict when it comes to honor code and safety issues, such as sexual assault incidents. Simply put: Brown is open to letting you be independent but will put its foot down when the situation calls for it.

校园管理:在校园严格管理这一点,布朗大学绝对是最好的。所以,只要你能保证自己的安全也不危急他人的话,就基本上可以做任何你想做的事而不会有行政和社交方面的压力。布朗大学只是在学校基本规则和安全问题方面管理严格,比如性骚扰问题。简单地说:布朗大学允许学生独立自主发展,但当有需要的情况下,校园管理方面不会袖手旁观的。

13.Administration: It's not easy to actually get in trouble at Brown. You have to be pretty stupid or basically looking for it. Brown Police is not out to get students, they really are just there to keep us safe. The only thing is that campus parties do get shut down a lot, but that's due to inevitable overcrowding and high noise levels of the better parties. Having visitors is incredibly easy. Nobody has to be notified- it's great because that seems like it would be a huge hassle. Cheating is taken very seriously, though it is known that in certain concentrations it happens quite a bit. Creating new student organizations is a process, but it is not difficult.

校园管理:在布朗大学你很难遇到麻烦。除非你傻到家了或者故意找麻烦。布朗校警不是那种天天在外照看学生,他们只是保证学生的安全。唯一的问题是校园晚会少了很多,那也是因为人员太多,太过喧嚣的缘故。有外人来访也是非常容易的。并不非要告知一些人,这非常好,因为那或许会是很大的麻烦。这里欺骗被认为是很严重的问题,尽管在某些重点领域也会时常发生。建立新的学生组织有一个过程,但是不麻烦。

14.Administration: One aspect that makes Brown unique is how liberal it is. They are very open to new ideas and to everyone. So starting new clubs, protests and demonstrations, and other ways to voice your opinion is almost unlimited. Brown is still strict with essential rules and policies, such as dorms and criminal activity.

校园管理:让布朗大学与众不同的一个方面就是它是非常自由的学府。他们对每个人、对新观念想法都很开放。所以,组建一个新的俱乐部,抗议、示威和其他彰显你自己声音的方式大部分也都是不设限的。布朗大学在关乎校规的基本守则和政策的方面管理是非常严格的,比如宿舍问题和犯罪问题。

15.Guys & Girls: Definitely pretty girls and nice looking guys. There is a place called Jo's that serves chopped salads for dinner and most dorms have a gym/gym nearby, so it is easier than it is at many places to keep fit if you want to. I don't know as many girls who put on pounds at Brown compared to schools at home, so that definitely enhances attractiveness. Only complaint is again that there are so many more gay boys than girls, so dating is extremely competitive for girls. It is good for the straight guys (esp straight athletes/frat guys who are attractive), because there will always be a line of too many ladies, but definitely not optimal for us girls!

男生女生:绝对都是俊男靓女!有一个叫做“乔之家”的地方,吃饭供有生切沙拉。很多宿舍有健身房或者附近有健身房,所以这里比其他地方更容易锻炼以保持身材,当然,如果你想的话。我认识的女生没有几个在布朗上学比在家体重增加了。所以这也提升了布朗大学的吸引力。唯一的抱怨在于这里有比“女同”比“男同”少得多。所以,对女生来说约会是很有难度的事情。这对“直男”很好(尤其是运动员/兄弟会的那些很有吸引力的人),因为总是会有很多很多的女性,但对我们女生这绝对不是最好的。

16.Guys & Girls: Brown students are famously attractive. However, the strong hook up culture means that many people seem not to be looking for long-term relationships.

布朗大学的学生很有吸引力为人所共知。但是考虑到这里随处可见的约会现象就意味着人们似乎不是为了那种长期的恋爱关系!

17.Athletics: Students in Brown are quite involved with different sports, it has a beautiful large fields and athletics facilities, and it organizes many events with other universities like Brown vs. Harvard last week, for the intramural sports, I enjoy swimming and playing Squash which give me a break from study

体育运动:布朗大学的学生对各种运动都有涉猎,学校有一个很美丽又宽敞的操场和各种体育设施。在这里布朗联合了其他大学举办许多体育活动,比如上周就举办了布朗大学和哈佛大学的比赛,我很喜欢游泳和打壁球,这能让我在学习之余获得放松。

18.Athletics: I love the sports teams! They really keep the campus together socially and throw some of the best parties. Many live off-campus, which is an advantage to the frats on campus parties, since they don't get broken up immediately. Attendance at sporting events isn't great- I went to like two games the whole time I was at Brown, even though I knew a lot of athletes!

体育运动:我爱这里的体育队伍!他们能让整个学校团结一致,也能举办一些最好的晚会。许多人不住校,这对学校兄弟会的人举办晚会来说是很有利的,因为他们不用很早的结束。参与体育活动事件也不是非常好,我整个在布朗大学期间只参加了两次,但我还是认识很多体育运动员。

19.Campus Food: The dining halls are okay, though there's not a lot of variety and healthy options are limited. Blue Room, Andrews, and Jo's are great — good variety and good quality, and they have some interesting/unique options (Asian fusion, made-to-order sandwiches, burrito bowls, etc). But it's the same price at those places whether you pay with cash or meal plan, so there's not much of a point to being on meal plan after freshman year.

校园饮食:这里的餐厅还不错,尽管没有那么多样的食物种类,健康食品可以选择的也有限。蓝房子、安德鲁和乔之家这些都是不错的餐厅——食物种类多样,质量也有保证,还有一些特色招牌(亚洲食物的大融合,定做三明治,卷饼等等)。这些地方的价格都是一样的,不论你付现金还是遵循就餐安排。所以,大一过后就没有几个人按照就餐计划走了。

20.Campus Housing: The best think i like it's all in one building size. You dont have to walk a mile to get to class and its only one class at a time. The length of class is short. The ability of the teacher to focus on students and teaching i mean teaching.

校园住宿:我最喜欢这里的地方就是这里的建筑风格了。你不用步行一英里的路程去上课,去一次只上一次课。课程时间也不不长。老师很关注学生,我是说在授课的时候。

21.Campus Housing: The dorms are very spacious, many are recently renovated, and the sense of community you have with residents is unbeatable.

校园住宿:宿舍非常宽敞,很多是最近新修的。和室友在一起的那种感觉是很美妙的。

22.Health & Safety: The university has taken steps to improve safety on campus. At night, we have safe ride- a shuttle service, safe walk- a service for two employed students to walk you where you need to go so you aren't alone, Brown University Police, blue lights, and Brown security posted in various spots on campus at night. I feel very safe, although there are the occasional crimes, like people getting robbed on the street or getting their bikes stolen.

健康安全:学校已经采取了措施进一步改善学校的安全工作。夜里,我们有“安全护送”——一种短途护送服务;还有“步步平安”——这是一种两名兼职学生陪你一起步行到你想去的地方,让你不会感到孤单的护送服务;布朗大学的校警,蓝色警报亭,还有夜里很多地方都能见到安全人员。我觉得很安全,尽管偶有犯罪现象,比如有人在街上被抢劫了,或者自行车被盗了。

23.Transportation: The airport is not in walking distance, but there is a shuttle from campus to the airport that runs every so often. People also take cabs. The train station and Peter Pan/Greyhound Bus terminal are both 15-20 minute walk from campus. Brown students can use RIPTA (Rhode Island public transit) for free, which can take you pretty much anywhere in Providence, but most major downtown locations are pretty easy to walk to. There's a Brown shuttle (free) that goes around campus but campus is pretty walk-able, so I only really use that when it's cold or I'm tired.

交通:机场不在步行距离范围之内,但有一个通勤班车自校内发往机场。人们也可以乘坐出租车。火车站和皮特潘/灰狗巴士车站距离学校也只有20分钟左右的步行距离。布朗大学的学生可以免费使用 RIPTA(罗德岛公共交通服务),几乎能带你去普罗维登斯的任何地方。其实,市区的很多地方都可以步行去的。有一个布朗大学班车(免费)在校内巡回停靠接人,但校内的很多地方都可以步行去,所以,我只是在天冷或者自己很疲倦的时候才会乘车。

24.Local Area: The atmosphere of Providence supplements Brown. As a student at Brown, you probably won't be leaving Brown's bubble to go interact with JWU students or Providence College students. However, Providence offers what many other cities offer. There are always local concerts, somewhere to go eat, activities to explore (such as the Waterfire). Providence Mall is also a really cool place to go shopping because it is so massive. Providence has a lot to offer.

本地概况:普罗维登斯的城市氛围让布朗大学锦上添花。作为一个布朗大学的学生,你大概会止不住地和JWU大学的学生或者普罗维登斯学院的学生谈论布朗大学的点点滴滴。但是,普罗维登斯这里和别的地方差不多,当地有音乐会,有餐厅,有各种社交活动(比如“水火不容”!)。普罗维登斯购物中心是很酷的购物场所,它里面的物品丰富得很。普罗维登斯精彩多多。
