Welcome to the Sarah Lawrence College parent community! As your student learns and grows with us, we encourage you to become involved and get to know those of us in the Office of Parent Programs in addition to other SLC parents. Families support the College and student body by attending campus events like Family Weekend, by attending or hosting regional events, by providing internships and career counseling support and through fundraising activities. Volunteering for the College through the Office of Parent Programs is a great way to become more engaged in the Sarah Lawrence experience while providing an important service to your children and our community. The features below and the pages of this Parents site are designed to help you stay connected and informed throughout your student's years at SLC.
Admitted students and their families are invited to join us for one of our Summer Send-Offs! Hosted around the country by parents of current Sarah Lawrence students, these events are a great opportunity to mingle with other members of the Class of 2019. Learn more and RSVP at the Admitted Students site»

View the checklist that new students recently received, and which must be completed before coming to Sarah Lawrence in the fall. Should you or your student have any questions, you may find this resource list containing various office contact information helpful. On the reverse side is the academic calendar for the upcoming school year.
We've also put together a Suggested Packing List to help figure out what your student should bring with them this fall—and what they should leave home!
Parents new to the Sarah Lawrence community are encouraged to fill out a brief questionnaire to provide their contact information and interests so we can keep in touch.
