Finding Alumni Connections

The Sarah Lawrence education fosters active engagement from our alumni. Graduates are invested in our students, regularly offering informational interviews and other advice. Many of these meetings have been arranged using SLC Connect (SLC's online community) or Linked-In. If you are interested in connecting with an alumnus in your field, we recommend using the following tools.

  • SLC Connect: After attending a mandatory orientation, juniors and seniors gain access to SLC Connect, the college’s alumni database where students join career communities, network with alumni and faculty for career advice, post questions to the discussion board, and access career resources.  Check with Career Services for orientation dates.
