Sweet Briar values the enhanced educational experience that living on campus provides for students to live and learn
together. It is an opportunity to grow, learn and share; a time to establish meaningful relationships, to learn more
about oneself through daily interaction with others, and to accept the responsibilities and privileges of group living
in a college environment. Residential living on campus is more than a room in a building or apartment; it is part of
the total educational experience at Sweet Briar.
Each residence area maintains, to some degree, its own identity and, upon a majority and/or unanimous vote,
depending upon the issue, may establish through a community agreement additional guidelines than those described
in the Student Handbook.
Resident Advisors (RAs) live in each student residence area and serve as a resource to students, build community
in student residence areas and to serve as a liaison with the Office of Residence Life to support the College in its
overall operation of the residence life program.
Planning for Fall 2013:
Opening for returning students is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 25, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Tuesday, Aug. 27, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
No exceptions will be granted, so plan ahead.
Have a great summer!
