Academics and Student Life
Meet Our Students
As a Sarah Lawrence College admitted student, you are on the verge of joining a community comprised of unique men and women who stretch the limits of conventional thinking. Like you, they are significantly talented, but not content to rest on their laurels. Whether scientists, performers, educators, entrepreneurs, or Antarctic explorers (like Trevor here), they share an inventive and open-ended approach to their lives. Through SLC's distinctive educational system—small seminars, individual conferences with professors, an open curriculum, and self-directed program of study—they are exploring and growing in ways that suit them personally. And taking their passions to a whole new, deeper level.
Whether publishing, performing, or presenting, Sarah Lawrence faculty members are always impacting their fields. Take a look at some of their most recent accomplishments.
