You're already a member of our family. Let's make it official.

If a member of your family is a Sweet Briar alumna, then we don't have to tell you that this is a special place. Your family member isn't the only one who benefits from her Sweet Briar education. Learn about the benefits of being a legacy student at Sweet Briar.

Sweet Briar students become leading women.
It's okay to follow in her footsteps.

You know what a Sweet Briar woman looks like. Whether she’s your mother, your grandmother, your sister, an aunt or cousin—you see her confidence . Whether she’s working as an engineer, leading a company or simply taking the reins of whatever she sets her mind to, Sweet Briar women are leaders in their personal and professional lives.

We recognize the importance of family bonds. Every Sweet Briar student is a member of our family, too. We believe that as a family member of a Sweet Briar alumna (legacy students, as we like to call you) you bring a connection to our College from day one that can only strengthen and reinforce the impact that you can make in the world. We are ready to provide the same guidance to you that your family member experienced in her time at Sweet Briar.

Become closer even while you step into your future.

Finishing high school. Selecting a college. Moving away from home. Starting a new life on your own. This is an exciting, complicated and stressful time in your life. It is the beginning of a new chapter and a step away from your family, towards your independence and your future. But that doesn’t mean it has to be a time when your family bonds are weakened. Attending Sweet Briar as a legacy student allows you to reinforce and strengthen your family bonds while you develop your independence at the same time.
