To go with this year’s theme, activities will have “A Storybook Adventure” spin. There will be games like the Treasure Island Treasure Dig and The Ugly Duckling Duck Pond Matching Game, as well as three "Story Corner" readings, where College celebrities such as the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs will read their favorite childhood stories to guests. More traditional activities include a bouncy castle, bouncy slide and bouncy obstacle course, along with puppet making, beading, and Ring Toss.
“Mayfair is a tradition for Sarah Lawrence. It is an important way to continue our positive relationship with the community,” said SSSF committee member Samantha Scala. The day is planned and run by SSSF and student volunteers, who are involved in everything from choosing a theme to selling cotton candy and running game booths.
Sarah Lawrence is a liberal arts college for men and women, founded in 1926, with a distinctive system of education. It is known for having one of the lowest (9:1) student/faculty ratios in the country. At the core of the system are small classes, regular one-on-one student-faculty conferences, cross-disciplinary approaches and the integration of the creative arts within the curriculum.
