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.

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.

While I haven't been here long, I already feel a sense of community. Everyone's willing to help out and they're all really dedicated to their studies.
