Never before in my life have I been able to find a place that both helps me to grow as an individual and completely accepts the individual that I am, no matter where I am in the process of that growth.
I have personal connection with nearly every one of my faculty members. For example: I took a Marketing course out of curiosity during the fall of my sophomore year; as a Musical Theatre major, I thought it could be a beneficial minor to take. To this day, as a rising senior, that professor (who teaches only one or two night courses for the College) periodically emails me to check in and to keep me aware of various jobs/internships that may be available to me - and that's not even the field in which I've chosen to major!
The friendships that I have fostered here at Sweet Briar are some of the nearest and dearest I have ever experienced. While many of my friends graduated as a part of the class of 2015, I have no doubt that we will remain close, despite being states apart. There are so many opportunities to create meaningful relationships here, be it on your dorm hall, in a class, on a team, onstage, or in any number of our myriad of available clubs and activity groups.
I have served as Student Admissions Ambassador since the spring of my first-year and I have never once felt phony or cliche when showing off our beautiful campus to visitors. I am not one to stomach "BS" and would certainly never stand for dishing it out on my tours. Just goes to show that all the love and positivity I feel for this school is 100% real.
Despite what some may think, our student body is diverse. We come from different backgrounds, have different goals, and different interests. But one thing unifies us above all else: We are Sweet Briar women who fought to save our school and who sure as hell are ready to take on the world.
