How can we help?

The Office of Communications at Sweet Briar provides a number of communications services to the College community and our goal is to create high-quality publications, videos and more in a timely fashion. As you might imagine, we get a large number of requests and have dozens of projects going at any one time. You can help us provide excellent service to everyone by filling out the appropriate form and by being aware of the length of time it takes to create projects. The more lead time you give us, the better we’ll be able to meet your needs and those of other departments at Sweet Briar.

A deadline is mandatory for every project. Please only submit one job per form, unless you need general event support (e.g., a poster, a program, and a press release all for one event). You can combine those into one request.

It is possible that we may not be able to do every job that comes in, depending on the number of projects we have going at any given time. The more lead time you give us, the more likely it is that we’ll be able to complete your project.

Someone from the communications office will reach out to you within two business days to discuss the details of your project.

Typical turnaround times:

  • Brochure: 6-8 weeks
  • Poster: 1 week
  • Event program: 2 weeks
  • Press release: 2 weeks to write one, 5 weeks in advance of an event
  • Business cards and name badges: 2-3 weeks; minimum time is 10 days for a rush job
  • A new web page: 2 weeks
  • Video: 6-8 weeks

If what you need isn’t on the list above, fill out this formĀ and tell us what you need.
