Sweet Briar College Reviews
Sweet Briar is an amazing place to grow as a woman. You truly learn to balance your academics and extracurriculars in a way my friends at other schools do not. The bonds you create with your professors at Sweet Briar are so strong and amazing, I've had dinner at a bunch of my professor's houses. The professors often put their cellphone numbers on the syllabus, that's how accessible they are. I couldn't imagine my college experience any other way!
Sweet Briar is an academic gold mine for Math or Science enthusiasts. World-renowned professors involve students in pioneering research and discovery. Students receive one-on-one attention from instructors who genuinely care. A safe, close-knit community ensures lasting friendships. Extra-curricular activities available include horseback riding, athletics such as rugby/tennis/lacrosse, Theater & Classics clubs, Outdoor Adventures along with rock climbing, canoeing, and spelunking. Sweet Briar is where Vixens find themselves.
I absolutely love my college. Everything about it, from the amazingly beautiful 3,200 acre campus to the comfortable small student body, is what I wanted in my education. The dorms are beautiful, with the dorm I'm in this year (as well as most of last year) being built in 1912. Despite the large campus size, all of the important buildings are close together, providing a wonderful walk to class every day! There are always fun events on the weekend to participate in. With the student body as small as it is, there are opportunities to participate in student activities and be an officer of whatever you want to! Women's colleges provide wonderful opportunities to those who choose to attend one, and with the rate of students employed immediately after graduation as high as it is for women's colleges, there's no place I'd rather be.
