Don't Take It From Us...
See Sweet Briar For Yourself

We can talk all day about our campus and what you can learn and do here. But to really understand, you need to see it for yourself. Whether you choose a virtual visit or an on-campus tour, you'll be glad you did. Sweet Briar College has so much to offer on campus, in our community and in the welcoming region that we call home. We'd love to give you a personalized tour.

Not a good time for an in-person visit?

We hope you’ll be able to visit in person soon, but if now isn't the right time for you, then a personalized virtual tour is a great way for you to learn more about Sweet Briar, answer some of your questions, and get to know us a little bit, while we get to know you too.

We provide two virtual campus tours each week: Tuesday at 9 a.m. EDT and Thursday at 5 p.m. EDT. We hope one of these virtual sessions will fit in your schedule.

Equestrians: We are offering virtual tours of our riding center on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. EST. These special tours will be given by a Sweet Briar riding instructor. Just use the same link for the virtual campus tour and our instructors will meet you there!

Upcoming Admissions Events

You’ll socialize with current students and hear about their experiences, tour the Harriet Howell Rogers Riding Center, and eat in the dining hall (it’s delicious!). There’ll be plenty of time for you to ask all the important questions to help you decide if Sweet Briar is right for you. We are currently working on the schedule and further details for the events but make sure you mark your calendar!
