What the students are saying about:

Sarah Lawrence College (8 of 10)

Sarah Lawrence College

Sarah Lawrence is the ideal college experience for anyone looking to gradually grow out of their Goth phase while getting a unique, intellectually-stimulating education in the process. One sophomore student says, "Sarah Lawrence's slogan is "You Are Different. So Are We." In a lot of ways, this is very true. The SLC experience is different from most other college experiences. Because all the academics are self-directed, people actually care about their work, and not because of getting good grades (because we don't have grades!) but because of their personal curiosity and internal motivation." Students at SLC are constantly raving about the school's intimate classroom size and the relationship they have with professors. "No matter who you are, you will find a group of friends here and the best classes ever. The best thing about SLC is that when you find the professors you really click with, they become your friends and mentors. They will be the people that you will forever thank."
