From Sweet Briar College

Behind every Sweet Briar woman is a team who believes in her and will ensure that her experience is one where she will grow and thrive.

Our staff and faculty are united in a common cause: to be the mentors you’ve always wanted, and to empower you to grow as a bold, independent thinker.

The Office of Student Life works closely with the academic dean and her staff to develop and strengthen meaningful opportunities for students. Initiatives are based on a co-curricular model — to expand and support learning, in and out of the classroom.
