Sarah Lawrence is a private, coeducational, liberal arts college offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in the humanities, the natural sciences, mathematics, history, social sciences, and the creative and performing arts. It 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-faculty ratio of 9 to 1. Its 40-acre campus is located in Bronxville, 30 minutes north of midtown Manhattan.
