2013 Commencement Weekend Information Brochure (updated April 10, 2013)
Seniors - Do you have a Sweet Briar Legacy Connection?
If you are a graduating senior with a Sweet Briar legacy connection who is attending commencement, the Office of Media, Marketing and Communications would like to take your picture. A legacy connection includes a sister who is a current SBC student or alumna; or a mother, aunt, grandmother or cousin who is also an SBC alumna.
These photos will appear in the College magazine and will also be able to be viewed and downloaded for free on the Wednesday following commencement by going to sbc.edu/commencement.
Photo slots are available prior to the commencement ceremony every 5 minutes from 8-9 a.m. For the photo, you should already be in cap and gown and have your hood on. Photos will be taken on the lawn in front of Benedict--the Bell Tower side. In case of inclement weather, meet in the entrance lobby of the new Fitness and Athletics Center.
Please contact Christy Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a legacy connection and wish to schedule a time for a photo. Include your connection's(s') full name and graduation year and preferable time you'd like your photo to be scheduled. We will try to accommodate your request, but will schedule on a first-come, first-served basis.

Dear Seniors and Master’s Students:
So that we may be more effective in our communications and planning for Commencement, we invite you to answer a few questions at our Commencement 2013 Survey.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Parents and Families:
Barely five months stand between the senior class of 2013 and our commencement. Throughout the trials and triumphs of college, you as parents and family members have lent your love and loyalty upon which our success has been founded. Now, after four years, it is time to celebrate the completion of this endeavor and look toward graduation.
Commencement will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2013. Please note that a number of events are also planned for Friday, May 17, including an awards ceremony, Baccalaureate and the President's Reception. Now is the time to begin making arrangements and booking reservations for accommodations at area hotels. Several area colleges will be sharing the same graduation weekend; therefore, we do urge families to arrange accommodations now. For your convenience, a list of area hotels can be found on page 2 of the Commencement 2013 brochure.
The Class of 2013 has often been noted by faculty and staff alike for our exceptional camaraderie, dedication to the principles of our institution and outstanding academic achievement. We look forward to having you participate in the celebration of our graduation and on behalf of the class of 2013, thank you for your continued support!
