Who is coming to Westchester for college this year?
Each year, we pack up our graduating high school classes and send them off into the wild blue yonder for college. But, across the country—and across the world—parents are doing the same—sending their young scholars here. Just who are the people who come to the county for higher education? We asked the admissions office at Sarah Lawrence College to give us a statistical snapshot of the class of 2015:
No. of Incoming First-Year Students: 397
Average GPA: 3.6
States with Largest Representation: CA, NY, MA, NJ, TX, CT, PA, and IL
Percent of Students from Other Countries: 14
Countries with Largest Representation: India (13), China (7), and Great Britain (5)
