Family Weekend




Thanks for joining us for Family Weekend 2017!

What a wonderful weekend! We had hundreds of family members on campus on Saturday for a lovely fall day. Personally, it was a pleasure to meet so many of our Gryphon parents and siblings as they came through registration. We always expect a great showing from the first year class, and were delighted at how many families attended from the Classes of 2020, 2019, and 2018.

Family Weekend is an opportunity for families to deepen their understanding of Sarah Lawrence by experiencing first hand some of the classes and activities at the College. Here are just a few of the highlights from the weekend:

  • Welcome from our new president, Cristle Collins Judd
  • Keynote address by Ruth Bernabe, parent of Olivia ’18 and active member of our Parents Advisory Council.
  • Q&A session with President Judd, Dean of Studies and Student Life Daniel Trujillo, and Associate Dean of the College Melissa Frazier, moderated by Dean of Student Affairs Paige Crandall
  • Lunch at Bates
  • Afternoon presentations by staff from Study Abroad & Exchange Programs, Career Services, Academics, and Health Services.
  • Screening of Trolls for students and their siblings
  • Class offerings to give parents a taste of the Sarah Lawrence classroom experience
  • Student performances
  • Athletic competitions

For those of you who joined us, we hope you had a lovely time on campus with your student. For those of you who were unable to attend, we hope to see you on campus in the future!
