Eavesdropping at Sarah Lawrence College has never before been so much fun.

What is october study days? I don't understand.

We take two days in October to suspend classes and discuss the concept of linear time and whether as a campus we still want to adhere to that model. Attendance is mandatory but they give you all the sweet potato fries you can eat so it’s mostly a fair deal by my standards.

A reminder that this blog is for anonymous quotes from STUDENTS, not quotes directly attributed to faculty members. I don’t know if slcteacherisms is still active but that would’ve been the place to submit professor quotes.

For the person asking questions about transferring-- Transfer students are assigned random housing like the first years, but are almost always placed with other transfer students, so it's not as stressful as you think it's going to be. :)

Thank you! I've read all your askoverheard posts. One last question: how hard is it to make friends in general and/or as a transfer student? I'm nervous as I haven't lived in the USA since I was young and don't know how I'll fit in.

The thing that unites Sarah Lawrence students is, we’re mostly just a bunch of weird kids who like nerdy stuff. Most people’s friend groups include students from various class years, so it’s always in our best interest to make new friends, especially if half of our friend group is going to graduate or go abroad. The transfer students I know have stable friends and feel like a part of the campus community.
So, in short, you will make friends here: with classmates, roommates, people in the same clubs and activities, that girl you talk to in the Teahaus, etc.

There’s also a whole group of transfer students who organized a club that helps make sure transfer students are well supported and get assistance navigating the SLC process 😄
