Statement  “Sarah Lawrence is a place that gives you lots of chances. It trusts you to find your own way and, ultimately, to succeed. It places great faith in individual initiative, values, hard work, optimism and determination. These are the traits with which Sarah Lawrence attracts people who have the potential, and the desire, to make a difference, by giving you the room to make that difference—whether through giving money, getting involved in projects, or both.”
