Safe, Spacious, and Ready for Fall 2020

Sweet Briar College plans to offer in-person instruction in fall 2020 on our safe and spacious campus.

Why are we confident we can do this safely?

  • We’re able to offer students individual residence hall rooms at no additional cost for the 2020-2021 academic year.
  • With 3,250 beautiful acres, our campus is spacious enough to allow for physical and social distancing.
  • We can safely serve meals to you in our dining hall and provide you with fresh, farm-to-table food from our greenhouse.
  • Our favorable student-faculty ratio means you’ll receive an excellent, personalized education in small classes with faculty members who will get to know you.
  • Small class sizes also mean you can safely spread out in our classrooms and laboratories.
  • We can offer hybrid or remote instruction to any student who needs it.
  • We’re offering on-campus medical care, telemedicine and COVID-19 testing this fall.
