We prepare young women to excel in the modern world. We’ve been doing it since 1901. And you are our sole focus. At Sweet Briar, women get all the attention, all the student leadership roles, and any career choice is open to you. We think that makes Sweet Briar pretty special.

Who We Are

Sweet Briar College was established in 1901 by Indiana Fletcher Williams in honor of her daughter, Daisy, who died at age 16. The sole owner of the then 8,000-acre Sweet Briar Plantation, Indiana left the estate to create an independent college for women. Uniting traditional undergraduate coursework with applied learning, Sweet Briar College has been educating women in the liberal arts and sciences for over 100 years. Indiana was a strong independent woman with a vision, and Sweet Briar alumnae have benefited immeasurably from her vision, her generosity, and her passion for education. For more than 100 years, SBC alumnae have fulfilled their passions and fulfilled Indiana’s vision as lawmakers, humanitarians, artists, scientists and entrepreneurs.
