We’ve been making history since our earliest days. Our alumnae have been political leaders, doctors and veterinarians, scientists, innovators and disruptors. They’re community leaders and decision makers. They’re generous and determined.
Sweet Briar College’s campus in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is more than just a beautiful place. Our 2,840 acres of farmlands and vineyards, forest and wetlands, meadows and historic buildings are a learning lab that helps students write their own future.
Our women’s leadership core curriculum is innovative and energizing. When our students graduate, they are persuasive communicators who know how to think on their feet and bring people together. No matter what they study or where they go from here, Sweet Briar women are prepared to lead.
We’re a family of faculty, coaches, alumnae and friends who support and encourage students and each other. With an average class size of eight students, students lead research, ask questions and forge supportive relationships with faculty that can last for decades.
Our students have a favorite rallying cry: “There’s nothing that you cannot do.” And that’s how you make history.
