Sweet Briar Families — Your SBC

Are you excited and anxious about the fall semester start at Sweet Briar?  Us too!!!  Is your daughter frantically packing to head to campus?  Ours too!!!  It’s that time of year, what we all have in common is our daughters are traveling to Sweet Briar, from near and far, to be among friends she has yet to meet; in a strong supportive community that is dedicated to her success; and most importantly to be challenged to develop her skills, talents, and invest in herself and her future.

Like you, our focus is making our daughter’s Sweet Briar experience as meaningful as possible.  Like you, we clearly see the value in a Sweet Briar education, and like you, we know tuition is a considerable commitment, and so it is with a very thoughtful appeal that we ask you to join us with your best gift in support of your student and every student at Sweet Briar.  In honor of your daughter and the students at Sweet Briar, please consider your best gift. 

Our participation in the Annual Giving campaign directly impacts the exceptional programming and experience made available to these remarkable young women. Your gift will be put to immediate use in classrooms, student scholarships, athletic fields, labs, academic competitions, career counseling and internship opportunities, and so much more!  

Thank you for considering your best gift and for your support of the students and Sweet Briar.  Here’s to an outstanding academic year!

Parent Steering Committee

Sweet Briar is rich in traditions and history. Just as the College encourages student engagement at all levels, we also welcome families to have their own “Sweet Briar Experience.” Each year, parents give their time, energy and resources, significantly impacting the entire Sweet Briar community.

Sweet Briar College began as an enduring gift from Indiana Fletcher Williams in honor of her daughter, Daisy, and the strong tradition of parent giving continues. The Parent Steering Committee is a volunteer organization that promotes parent involvement in the College through financial support, networking with fellow parents and a collective voice to promote the College's mission.

The Parent Steering Committee is vital to Sweet Briar, and every student benefits from the stewardship and generosity of this special group of parents.

Parents of current students serving on the Parent Steering Committee receive helpful training to be ambassadors for Sweet Briar. They learn how to welcome and serve as a resource for incoming and returning families, how to further engage with the College, and how to make their philanthropic gifts of time, talent and financial support go to work for all Sweet Briar students.
