Photography and Video Policy

All students are required to submit a signed media release statement as part of Sweet Briar’s orientation policy. While the vast majority of students grant permission for the College to use images (photographs and video) of them in marketing materials, there are a few students each year who do not. It is the responsibility of the student to notify the Office of Communications or the person capturing the images if they do not wish to have their image taken or used.

Visitors to campus may take pictures of campus structures and land. Sweet Briar does request that visitors register with the Office of Campus Safety before coming to campus to take photographs and video.
