Nadia Goldberg is concentrating in biochemistry at Brown, but that’s just the beginning of her many interests and activities.
Brown offers about 2,000 courses each year in more than 40 academic departments, giving students the freedom to explore a wide range of academic areas. Thanks to the Open Curriculum, she’s taken courses on topics ranging from conflict in the Middle East to Latin American culture to love.
“I chose Brown because I came from a pretty competitive high school, and I loved that Brown was a community of collaboration,” Nadia says. “But I also chose Brown because of the academic freedom. I knew I wanted to study science, but I didn't want that to get in the way of exploring my other interests.”
And when it comes pursuing other interests, and meeting new people, Nadia started getting involved early...and often.
“I counted about 50 clubs I wanted to be a part of after wandering around the activities fair that first semester of my freshman year,” she says. “There are so many fascinating people at this school. I know it would be impossible to meet them all, but through joining activities, I'm able to expand my circle and get to know such smart and passionate people.”
