"The science department is great. Its a very small team of teachers; however, they are extremely attentive and motivating. In addition, many science students are able to take on bigger projects that resembles PhD thesis projects because the labs are so small. The social environment takes some getting used to. The administration is decent. I really loved Sarah Lawrence but it was definitely not worth the amount it costs, especially if youre not wealthy."

"Sarah Lawrence College was one of three colleges that made me offers--and the one I chose, regrettably. This institution is so apathetic and passive-aggressive in its dealings with students, that it's infuriating. As a grad-student, I am especially miffed because I can't simply transfer out. If I leave, I'm in debt for nothing so it's a sort of entrapment. The Financial Aid department screwed up my student account, refused to take responsibility for the mistake, and is forcing me to pay for it out of my end. They command a lot of power and provide no department to look after student interests. The culture of the college in addition to the administrators' attitudes creates an environment that exacerbates depression. But hey, if you can accomplish your academic goals in this environment, go for it."

"I would recommend Sarah Lawrence to any self-driven students looking fora well rounded and rigorous education. Seminar classes are accompanied by conference work, which involves biweekly individual meetings with professors and an independent research paper, and allow students to explore what truly interests them."

"Sarah Lawrence gave me an intimate setting to learn from my professors and peers. I felt challenged daily and was held responsible for all of my assignments. The peer mentorship was also incomparable. I would recommend Sarah Lawrence to anyone who is driven and is ready to pursue all of their interests through a rigorous course of study."

"I loved it there. It's a great school for an "outside the box" thinker. The fact that I wasn't restricted by traditional majors let me study subjects iIprobably never would have at a more traditional four year school"

"Sarah Lawrence College is such a unique educational experience and one I wouldn't have traded for the world. The professors are incredible and the small classes allow for incredible discussion of topics from many different perspectives. I particularly loved the amount of student driven work in each class (conference work)--it allowed me too really personalize the classes and the topics that interested me."
