What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
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.
Michaela, rising Junior
Sarah Lawrence is the safest place to explore all aspects of yourself. The faculty and staff are more helpful and loving than you can imagine and the friends you'll make here are the truest ones you'll make anywhere. If that isn't enough, the beautiful campus itself will provide all the support and nurture you need to make it through the arduous winter and the late night conference paper cramming.
