What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sarah Lawrence definitely lives up to the liberal arts standard. The classes are extremely small, your professors are always there for you, and there is a wide range of courses. On the downside, with such a small school, the social scene can be limited at times. This means that there won't be a party every single weekend, and sometimes you might find yourself wishing you stayed in instead. However, your proximity to the city does sort of make up for this lack of party culture.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sarah Lawrence College is a liberal arts college that cares about its students and how they live. I usually feel welcome and safe everywhere on campus. The students, faculty, and staff are welcoming and helpful. The campus is gorgeous and pretty accessible. We are about forty minutes by train away from NYC. Overall, I have had a wonderful experience at SLC so far with the myriad of organizations, classes, and activities on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of Sarah Lawrence is that the school is very prestigious but also flexible. Flexible in how they organize and create "majors" like other colleges. Sarah Lawrence seems like a very enriching environment for students to grow and be exposed to new cultures and ideas. The school is very supportive of the arts and the one-on-one meetings with the students during semesters is a good idea, that I strongly agree with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I liked the old Unigo better. Let me give this a try. The academics at SLC are top tier. I've had some truly incredible professors although certain departments (economics for example) are too small and should definitely have more faculty members. The small class sizes are great and professors are usually very accessible. My problems with my college were primarily linked to the social scene. The school isn't liberal at all, despite being a "liberal arts college." There are some great people but students as a whole don't like people's whose opinions conflict with their own, even slightly. Certain groups aren't above spreading malicious rumors about people they don't like. If you dare to challenge them, they'll call you racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic...ect even if you clearly are not. If you're not a bleeding heart, social justice preaching liberal whos not afraid to try to ruin the life of anyone who disagrees with them, be warned - the social scene at SLC is likely going to be very difficult. They will also hate you if you dress preppy. Don't even think about mentioning Vineyard Vines.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Come here is you genuinely love reading and writing, are passionate about your studies, and are politically liberal. SLC favors the arts more than anything so if you're into art/humanities it will be easy to find classes you'll love. Come here if you do better in smaller classes and if you don't like to work for a grade, but for the knowledge. You don't have to be liberal, but most students are so you'll probably be less angry.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sarah Lawrence College is absolutely fantastic for me when it comes to the academics. With the combination of the class size, great faculty, and amazingly interesting assignments I really find myself both challenged and interested. However, in what SLC thrives in academics it doesn't do so well in practicality. The housing (at least hill house) is prone to things just not working, plumbing issues, leaks, dangerous flooring, etc. We've had to put in so many work orders it's insane. Also the food is pretty bad in my opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sarah Lawrence is a very small campus with a tight knit community of both students and teachers. The student population is made up largely of nerdy activists, each with their own strong opinions. There is little to no discrimination between the classes, due to Sarah Lawrence's class system, and you don't really know your peer's education level unless you ask. Class sizes are always small, even the lectures, and the teachers or your fellow students are usually available and willing to help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sarah Lawrence College is unlike any college that you will ever find. I won't lie, it was a tough four years. Socially, Sarah Lawrence can be isolating. However, it more than makes up for that academically. During my studies, I explored Theatre, Film, International Relations, Poetry, etc. At Sarah Lawrence you are offered the opportunity to explore a wide range of subjects. Doing that showed me where my passion lied. Though I cannot say that it was the best four years of my life, I am appreciative of the education that I received.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I hate it here. A lot. This was a fall-back school for me and I ended up having to come here because I didn't get in to my top choices. The dorms are pretty shit, there's asbestos in the basements, the rooms in Garrison/Taylor are supposed to be doubles but due to size constraints they're triples now, the heat was turned on way too early in the year, and there's no A/C. Your "don" is just the professor who teaches your FYS, and if you end up in your third or fourth choice FYS (like I did) there's a high chance your don won't be useful. It's difficult to make friends here. Everyone is nice and helpful and whatever, but they don't want to be your friend. Bronxville residents *hate* SLC students. When walking on the main road (Kimball) we frequently get harassed verbally and sometimes get things thrown at us for no reason. The food is mediocre, but on weekends your options are severely limited. The meal plan is just plain terrible - you can use a meal swipe once per "meal period" at the Pub OR the library cafe OR the Atrium cafe. That said, you can swipe into Bates as much as you want. Brunch is gross - the same food every weekend, and sometimes if you're lucky you'll get food poisoning from it. Students on this campus tend to victimize themselves a lot and they never really do anything about the social issues they claim to care about. Clubs and organizations rarely do anything. Academically, I am not challenged here. I barely have any homework so I end up finishing my conference work weeks before the end of the semester. For me, and for the things I want to do, this is definitely not the place for me. Go here if you're artsy, depressed, cynical, or if you don't fit in anywhere.
