Most Helpful Review for Sarah Lawrence College
  • Category: Will learn a lot
  • Review by: Elizabeth from Cincinnati, OH

Sarah Lawrence is all about learning. It is sort of the Juliard for writers. You get in based on your writing, and you do well acedemically because of it. There are very few tests, since most of the curriculum is based on essays. It is unlike any other school in that a professor becomes your mentor, your don, for four years and helps you with every major decision you make. The professors will know your name and will be as close to you as you want them to be.

    It is an awesome place to learn how to think for oneself and get challenged. It is beautiful and there is a good atmosphere depending on the people you hang out with. The food isn't that bad either but we need another cafeteria.

    It's the ultimate liberal college. If you want a smaller class experience with teachers who honestly care about you, you've hit the jackpot. Unfortunately, the small size is a double edged sword.

    The campus is gorgeous and so are the students! Everyone works very hard but also knows how to manage their time and have fun. The atmosphere is unique but I would not have it any other way.

    Sarah Lawrence is different and does not appeal to just any student. It requires self-motivation, ambition, and academic integrity. Without those things you will either hate SLC or eventually get kicked out.

    This school fits a certain type of student. If you're independent, liberal, and creatively inclined you will fit in well. If you're passionate about your studies, you will really appreciate the one on one time you get with your professors.

    Sarah Lawrence is like no other school. Students here are intellectually engaged, and have a passion for what they study. With the lack of requirements, students are able to take classes in whatever they want, resulting in classes filled with students who want to be there, eager to learn the material.

    Sarah Lawrence is a place for those who could picture themselves in a modern day Renaissance. It is full of philosophers and photographers, psychologists and painters, art historians and authors, and generally intellectuals and artists. The faculty here is astounding and anyone who chooses to come here and really engage with the learning opportunities provided is bound to expand their intellectual horizon.
