Statement “Sarah Lawrence played a key role in my educational journey. I will always appreciate the one-on-one advising system and the access to faculty that the College granted to me, as it does to all of its students. The faculty and staff embraced, supported, nurtured and encouraged me in my various pursuits, even when I expressed self-doubts, and for that I will always be grateful. When I reflect on SLC, I also recall how impressed I was by my classmates: a cohort of talented students who were smart, creative and sophisticated.”
