When you choose Sweet Briar, you choose the road less traveled.
Sweet Briar is an innovative liberal arts college with a strong history of producing women of consequence. Our graduates are doctors, entrepreneurs, authors, artists, political leaders and change-makers. As more women enter positions of leadership, their presence will change our definition of excellence in leadership. As a Sweet Briar student, we want you to help craft that definition. Whether you choose to major in the sciences, humanities or the arts, you will pursue excellence at Sweet Briar, but our core curriculum will set you apart from the crowd. Along with a solid understanding of business and entrepreneurship, you’ll gain impeccable communication and decisionmaking skills. When you graduate, you’ll understand leadership and how to exercise it in the workplace and in your community. Our core curriculum isn’t the only thing that makes Sweet Briar special. We’ve recently introduced a new academic calendar with three-week sessions at the beginning and end of the year. These sessions will allow you to dive deeply into topics that interest you, study abroad, gain work skills during internships and engage in meaningful research with faculty members. All of this happens on one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. 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 one of our historic residence halls and talk to our admissions and financial aid staff. This is a powerful place. We want you to be a part of it. Sincerely, MEREDITH WOO PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE 1
