A library to do some work before i have cost at two. Um, so i'm test i'm a first year and i chose to come to sarah lawrence mainly for the type of education what i'm hearing. So it's a very big writing school i find, and you've got a lot of personal attention from professors, so it's a lot less about tests and memorizing, depending on the class and more so about, like, discussions on writing, which i was very interested in. I also came here because you are really allowed, like, right from the get go right ? As a first year, too, like, pick your classes. You've like there's no requirements like, you don't have to take any janet's freshman. You have to take, like, a certain number of classes throughout your four years. As a first year, i was able tio basically choose wherever i wanted to do, which was a big appeal for me. I think it took me a little while to find a group of people that i really clicked with. You will see everyone all the time, which i think is a pro and con. We don't really have majors at sarah lawrence, but we have concentrations. So you everyone graduates with same degree, a liberal arts degree. You can kind of choose what you want to spend your time on, what you want to take. Once we call those concentrations, try and cross the street. Um, yeah, and that academic climate, like i was saying before, it's it's it's a really non competitive campus when it comes to academics, which is very different from my high school and something that i really value about sarah lawrence is that everyone here is kind of here for their own education. Like, people are, really it's it's very much the salvadorans. You can work really hard and kind of come away from here with something really valuable. You slack off here because of how personalized the education is and how non test basis. For the most part, people are here because they want to like better themselves. Finally, um, my favorite part about sarah lawrence is the professors one hundred percent way have amazing professors who are there for the students ? One hundred percent. We have a dawning system where basically every student gets a mentor like an adviser for all four years. I'm there also a teacher for one of your classes. My least favorite part is probably right now this construction. Probably seeing people all the time, like really not being able tio not see people that you don't want to.
