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.
