Recently, SEEDS’ Guidance Department and more than 35 scholar alumni visited 11 colleges and universities over five days on the annual Spring College Tour. In a series of blog posts, scholar alumni and staff will reflect on their visits to each campus.
Day 1: Sarah Lawrence College, Vassar College and Bard College by Akhira Montague (Scholars ’11, Putney School ’15)
Although the day started cold and early, we began our Guidance Spring College Tour with Sarah Lawrence College. At this liberal arts college, we had the opportunity of meeting Christiaan Pfeifer (Scholars ’08, Concord Academy ’12), who is a SEEDS alum currently attending the school. Christiaan talked about his experience at Sarah Lawrence and how it is important for us to research schools for information on optional SAT and ACT scores, financial aid availability, and study abroad programs at Sarah Lawrence. Although the campus population is small, Sarah Lawrence focuses on its students building positive working relationships with faculty and staff members.
