Sarah Lawrence College Reviews

The education is more than worth it if you can overlook the mediocre social experience. I would recommend the school to anyone legitimately serious about their education.
It's a great academic environment which makes it worth the price. Sarah Lawrence is a great place as it allows students to study a variety of topics without having to declare a major. The donning system is extremely beneficial and allows for the close interactions with professors, which is very unique.
It's basically tumblr in real life, which can be both good and bad. It's a pretty weird place, but it's lovable. It's certainly got it's flaws like everywhere else does, but overall, i'm really happy with my decision to come here.
The best thing about the place is the Donning program. But only if your don is amazing like mine. Otherwise, everyone has their head up their ass with no grasp on the real world. If you disagree with the liberals on campus, you're ostracized. SLC kids only accept the right kind of weird. The sense of humor on campus is juvenile and weird. Only a certain kind of person can go here. I think the place will be shut down in the next 10 years- it's going bankrupt.
I love the unique education system. They have a special liberal arts system that is completely their own. I feel free and conifident to pursue my own interests and I have plenty of resources to support me, as well.
Courses are always interesting and proffesors are always approachable
I think it may be too easy for SLC students to graduate with a degree and be unprepared for the working world.

SLC does have sexual assults but what I think makes our school better at handeling them is the transparency. As soon as the school gets notified of the assult, students get a blast email with information telling them what happened and where to go if they need support or have information.
Its a bit difficult to navigate at times, but it is still a great deal. ESP the all gender housing.

Athletics aren't a huge part of SLC life. They are definitely not as important as actual school work which I respect immensely. But students not involved in athletics can still use the athletic facilities which make promoting a healthy lifestyle on campus much easier.
I love SLC because of the insane amount of opportunities you get as an undergraduate that you would otherwise have to wait until graduate school to get. Things like research fellowships with professors and internships in the city make building up a resume so easy.
I think the college does great with dealing with sexual assault issues. The school is very progressive which means students feel very strongly about these sorts of things and always want to help anybody that has dealt with it.
The housing is very unique. The dorms aren't always traditional which is nice however they seem to be a little outdated but that is just part of the originality of the college.

The gym isn't the best because it is fairly small and a bit updated. However, athletics don't have a big role on campus so students really mind
Sarah Lawrence is a very open-minded and progressive school. It's academics is like no other school in the country. It gives students the freedom to truly venture into their academics and take any class they desire. Students control their education and dive into their passion without any limitations.
SO many SLC graduates have their own wikipedia pages. One will most likely get a job before one even graduates.

Professors are (generally) friendly and easy to talk to, are expert in their field, and are good at their job (namely, teaching).
The powers that be are very concerned for the safety of the students and the general legal health of the campus.
It's a dorm, you know? It's not a five star hotel, but they're pretty nice, and if you have some friends in the area, it's even better.

The teams are all of quality and the intramural sports are supported by the student body.
