Mission Statement

Sarah Lawrence College has been an exemplar of progressive education since its founding in 1926. Our private, coeducational college offers students a dynamic community of internationally renowned scholars, writers, scientists, and artists on a wooded campus just 30 minutes north of Midtown Manhattan. Here, students pursue individualized courses of study, meet regularly with professors, and deeply explore their interests. As they do, they find meaning, direction, and an entrepreneurial spiritâ??not externally imposed, but emerging from their own intellectual and creative appetites.

    Though it can be slightly restrictive socially, it is almost flawless academically. I would not trade the passion of the professors, the talented group of students, or the individualistic orientation of the SLC system of education for anything. The entire education is based upon creativity. It is about generating ideas, creating yourself, and connecting disciplines to understand the world more fully.

    The campus is beautiful and New York City is easily accessible. You can always escape to the bright lights, but can easily come back to the trees and suburbs of Bronxville. The professors are great and really work to develop personal relationships with you -- a process also assisted by the small class sizes. I LOVE it here.
