Please tell us what made you choose to come to Summer@Brown and whether the program met your expectations: I saw summer@brown as an opportunity to learn as well as a way see whether Brown was a college of interest. The program met and went beyond all expectation I had. I chose to come to Summer@Brown because of my interest in the school and my interest in the course I took. I enjoyed the class and program immensely and my expectations were satisfied. I chose to come to Summer @ Brown because I am a Kauffman Scholar and just was able to attend a camp on a full ride because I performed ecxeptionally well during the school year. The Summer @ Brown didn't meet my expectations. The Brown University was way better than what I expected. I love that we had freedom and they treated us like college students. i heard about it through my school and i liked the course choices. i really enjoyed my class. i got a card in the mail, and i figured \"why not?\" i decided i really dislike the ivy league experience It was a very enjoyable stay and so much to do in a say. The people are nice and the teachers are excellent. I have never been away from home for an extended period of time without people I know, so it was an opportunity to see what it feels like before I head off to college next fall. I've been interested in Brown for over a year now, so I also viewed it as a way to really feel out the atmosphere. I loved my week! The class was excellent and Lori was so intelligent and engaging! Opportunity to experience life and learning at Brown, and to learn more about a topic i'm interested in

What do you think were the major strengths of this course? The discussion and reading materials made the class very enjoyable and stimulating I think the major strengths of this course was that we had a good amount of materials that contributed to the course subject. it gave a comprehensive view of the supreme court workings, and the history of religious cease within the supreme court. i really loved the discussion format, wouldve liked more platform for debate, instructor was informative, nice, and engaging My strenghts were reading and able to understand. The powerpoints in this class were the best I have EVER seen. So creative and engaging and pleasing to the eye-- it made learning that much easier. Also, Lori was such a good teacher, and she explained everything really well. class discussion

What do you think were the major weaknesses of this course? The major weaknesses was that the course could of been alittle more interesting and less boring. the discussion was not productive. the discussions consisted of us re-telling what we read the previous night, without much imput of ourselves. far too much work assigned every day The amount of time spent on the homework i gave in. That it was only one week! There was so much more we could have grasped if only we'd had the time. written assignments
