Welcome, Class of 2024!

Congratulations! I'm so happy to welcome you to Sarah Lawrence College.

The past few weeks looked pretty different than a typical March at Sarah Lawrence: we transitioned into a new reality of remote learning and working, and settled into the idea of welcoming our admitted students to our community virtually. We know this spring looks different for you, too, but I’d still like to take a moment to celebrate your hard work—work our office spent the winter and early spring absorbing and discussing—your application essays, art supplements, transcripts, and recommendation letters. At Sarah Lawrence, even the Admission Office approaches their work seminar-style: lots of discussion, lots of reading, lots of talking about the reading… So I can say with absolute authority that this year’s admitted class is truly unique and comprises so many different and exciting perspectives, backgrounds, interests, and talents. I can’t wait for you to get to know each other.

This site is shifting a little more frequently than in years past—we’re working constantly to provide you ways to virtually engage with our campus community. From asking specific current students questions to engaging with other admitted students, we know that you have important decisions to make in the coming weeks and the more conversations and information you have, the better. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions at slcadmit@sarahlawrence.edu.

I hope despite the uncertain times we find ourselves in, you make time to celebrate—this is a big moment! Nothing can take that away.
