Hallmarks of a Sarah Lawrence education:

Dons (faculty mentors)
Throughout your years at SLC, your don will help you plan an academic path that is most meaningful to you
Round table seminars
In classes with no more than 14 other students, you’ll discuss subjects with faculty and classmates in great detail
1:1 meetings with faculty
In bi-weekly conferences, you and your teachers will discuss your individual projects related to your classes
Writing in every discipline
An emphasis on writing over testing fosters deeper understanding and improves your ability to formulate and communicate ideas
Alumni who are changing the world
Alumni succeed at the highest levels: as artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, scholars, lawyers, and more. Their success owes much to what they learned at SLC—and perhaps even more to how they learned it.
Evaluations, not just grades
Written evaluations of your performance, not just grades, give you a complete picture of your strengths and weaknesses
