Sarah Lawrence College is located in southern Westchester County, bordering the communities of Yonkers and Bronxville, NY just 15 miles north of midtown New York City. Meredith Monk ’64 once described Sarah Lawrence College this way: “A Sarah Lawrence education teaches you that you have the right and duty to be what some people would call a troublemaker, that is, an independent, intelligent, curious person who wants to find his or her own solutions to things.” This is a place that encourages people to take risks, to go against the grain - intellectually, emotionally, artistically and politically.
Sarah Lawrence is a coeducational liberal arts college, offering undergraduate as well as graduate degrees. Located just north of New York City on a wooded campus, the College is nationally renowned for its rigorous academic and creative standards. These are fostered by small seminar classes and individual student-faculty tutorials made possible by a very low student-to-faculty ratio of 6-to-1. It is a lively community of students, scholars, and artists offering outstanding programs in the humanities, the natural sciences and mathematics, history and the social sciences, and the creative and performing arts.
The College welcomes as students men and women who display evidence of intellectual curiosity and stamina, concern for others, and the potential for personal growth. We are particularly committed to having our faculty, administration and student body reflect the social, racial and economic diversity that characterizes our society. We believe that education is enhanced by a diverse community, by the vitality of an ongoing dialogue among people with different experiences and beliefs.
