When the first 51 women enrolled in Sweet Briar Institute in 1906, they were making history — in more than one way. At the time, most women didn’t go to college, especially not in the South. More than a century later, first-year students at Sweet Briar College are still doing their own thing: they’re among just two percent nationwide who chose to go to a women’s college in 2014.
Sweet Briar’s chapter of Help Save the Next Girl will hold a candlelight vigil in honor of the women in our area who have been abducted and murdered. The event will take place at 7 tonight in Memorial Chapel.
Sweet Briar is one of “30+ Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs,” according to a national study conducted by the Center for Inclusion, Diversity & Academic Success at The Ohio State University.
