Welcome

Having taught Spanish at Sweet Briar College for 25 years, I am honored to also now serve as dean of the faculty. It is a privilege to be a part of this dynamic academic community, and to work with such accomplished and dedicated faculty to offer an outstanding liberal arts education to women.

Our classes are small, but the opportunities are limitless. Here you will find comprehensive academic support for your individual success; a wide range of student engagement opportunities; exciting, interdisciplinary course offerings through the Honors Program; and incredible research and internship opportunities. We encourage you to embrace challenges in and outside the classroom, connect with the social, intellectual and cultural life of the College, and thrive as a competitor on our athletic or riding teams, while building lifelong relationships with your classmates and faculty.

As part of our commitment to experiential learning, we also encourage students to study abroad. In addition to our JYF in Paris (JYF) and JYS in Seville (JYS) programs, we offer access to many other international programs during the summer, for a semester or an entire academic year. Whatever you choose, it will be the experience of a lifetime.

Come to Sweet Briar for an excellent education, discover all you are capable of, and take advantage of everything available to you now and for years to come. Let your future begin here.
