When you choose Sweet Briar, you take the road less traveled.
We are a women’s college with a storied history. It’s a bold statement that says you have the confidence and resolve to make your own way. Your experience here will be transformative. We promise an innovative approach to learning, one that is hands-on, collaborative, and focuses on issues of importance and relevance today. You’ll discover a challenging curriculum, excellent teachers and a vigorous intellectual life in and outside the classroom. For more than 100 years, Sweet Briar students have become women of consequence — self-directed and independent, they are strong leaders for their communities and the world. Come see for yourself. Tour our beautiful grounds, meet our students and faculty, and attend a class. We’ll arrange for you to stay in a residence hall and talk to our admissions and financial aid staff. This is a powerful place; we’re confident that when you step on campus, you’ll know what we mean. We hope to see you soon! Sincerely, MEREDITH WOO PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE 1
