SLC is a magnet for students who want, above all other things, to be well-educated. Careers, money, and business are seen as secondary in comparison to the joy of learning. The one-of-a-kind curriculum gives you the freedom to choose what you want to learn and how you want to learn it. Many students come to Sarah Lawrence unsure of their futures, and many graduate feeling no less disoriented. Yet, it's agreed that the SLC program, with its distinctive philosophy of academics, is a life-changing experience. After all, being a student here equals spending four years immersed in a community of intellectual young people and world-renowned professors.
What students report as the biggest setback is the anemic social scene. Nightlife is nearly nonexistent. Traditionally, SLC students are introspective, private, and socially-awkward people. Loners are abundant, as are small, insular cliques. The severe lack of ethnic or political diversity means that there may be too many like-minded people for the college's own good. Further complicating the situation is the often unfriendly off-campus neighborhood, which causes many students to feel trapped on campus. And it's hard to dismiss the staggeringly high tuition prices. Still, the retention rate is high; students seem determined to endure the College's weaknesses for the sake of its unique strengths.
there is a shuttle that will take you to the train station and to trader joes along with driving people around campus. the train is also walking distance, very close and very accessible, and well priced. if you call a taci they are usually there in ten minutes. also zip cars are available and very easy to access.
Everybody is extremely accepting to race sexuality and gender.
If you're up for a liberal arts education, then this is the place for you. You are encouraged to study all avenues of interest whilst finding a common thread between them with your intended focus of study. You can explore your academic and professional interests without feeling confined to a specific major.
I am grateful for the scholarship I received. However, SLC doesn't have a lot of money to give. They do give what they can, all they can, which I respect tremendously. It is hard to compare them to other schools that can afford to offer a full ride, but they do give all they can.
If you don't mind me asking, how much money did they give you? I am an international student applying to Sarah Lawrence and I was wondering how much do you think they'd be able to grant me?
The campus is very relaxed and reasonable about most things. They trust us to be responsible and you do your best to hold yourself to their standards. It's hard because it is your home and also your place of study, but you find the balance.
