School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):

Sarah Lawrence is a distinctive coeducational college of the liberal arts and sciences offering undergraduate and graduate degrees. The College is nationally renowned for its rigorous academic standards, which are fostered by small seminars and individual student-faculty conferences, made possible by a low student -to - faculty ratio of 9-to-1. Students at SLC design their own course of study with the help of a faulty advisor or "don". Study abroad is a popular option for many juniors and Sarah Lawrence has programs in Paris, Florence, Catania, Oxford, London and Havana. Students in all years frequently augment their classes and conferences with work in neighboring communities and New York City through service learning, volunteer opportunities and internships. Long respected as a national leader in arts education, Sarah Lawrence recognizes the creative and performing arts as integral to a liberal arts education.
