Founded in 1926, Sarah Lawrence is a co-ed, liberal arts college with 1,670 students. Some interesting things about the way they serve up the college experience:
DIY academics. No majors. No general ed courses. Seriously.
Up close and personal. Most classes consist of a small seminar and biweekly one-on-one student/professor meetings.
Research opps. Students conduct independent research projects beginning freshman year.
Test-optional. No need to submit SAT or ACT scores.
Quiet, but close to everything. Suburban location, 30 minutes from midtown Manhattan.
Generous. They provide hefty sums of both need- and merit-based financial aid.
