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
