Most Helpful Review for Sarah Lawrence College

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.

    Sarah Lawrence is a haven for intellectuals and free spirits. Nothing is too taboo to discuss, and many students learn more in these four years here than they do at any other point in their lives. Sarah Lawrence embodies creativity, love, freedom, kindness, and openness.

    A lovely, engaged, and beautiful campus. Definitely a small college (a good thing!)- I visited a class and saw over two-thirds of the class again as I walked around campus throughout the day. All of the professors I met were passionate and intelligent.

    Sarah Lawrence is a haven for individuals. If you are seeking intense discussions, self-discovery, and a community of free-thinkers, this school meets and often exceeds that criteria. Every student is a character, every professor a source of enthusiasm, inspiration, and guidance throughout your four years.

    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.
