Sarah Lawrence is one of the most inclusive and supporting student bodies that I have been a part of. You won't have to worry about fitting in here; no one fits in here. Everyone is on their own vibe which is what makes it good for students nervous about leaving home for the first time.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Specifically for student-athletes: This is the only college where you may get made fun of for playing a sport. Everyone still comes to the games though!

Sarah Lawrence was my top school but I've learned that the picture they show of the school to the public is not the one that students actually experience. The academics are by far the best aspect of Sarah Lawrence, the faculty are knowledgeable, supportive, and gracious. I would not have changed the academic experience but most other areas are less than ideal.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Most areas outside of academics are less than ideal. Food safety has been an issue. Food poisoning is rampant. Depending on where you are living, it can also be iffy. The people I've met are cliquey and once friendships have been established, it's very hard to make friends.

The academic aspect of the college is one of the best for students very interested in intellectualism. It is a very student-directed model of study and incredible research heavy which one has to enjoy in order to do well at school. That being said, there is a bit of an accessibility problem on the campus due to the hilly layout as well as a resource problem in relation to a said accessibility issue, so keep that in mind if you are a disabled student (whether physically, mentally, or cognitively). Otherwise, I highly recommend the college especially if you are queer and interested in widespread intellectual experiences.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Accessibility, food access (there are relatively limited options especially if you have food sensitivities or allergies), and racial diversity. The college is a PWI so there isn't the most representative of BIPOC both in faculty and student body.
