On our beautiful campus, in close community, we grow into the connected, ethical leaders the world urgently needs. 

Where women lead

In our Women’s Leadership Core Curriculum, in our innovative academic calendar, in our barns, in our labs, and on our teams, we question, analyze, take charge and solve problems. 

Sweet Briar women advocate and inspire. We shape our community. We change our world.

Rooted in our land

In the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, together we steward 2840 acres, the fourth-largest campus among liberal arts colleges in the U.S.

You’ll find forest and wetlands, trails and historic buildings. In our vineyards, our apiary, our greenhouse and our barns, we study, engineer, tend and sustain our habitat and its residents, animal and human.

Knit tight

We are a connected community of just under 500 students. Our average class size is eight students. Our faculty are our mentors.

We live, learn and eat together. We pitch in, dig deep, germinate ideas and incubate dreams. We hoist and holla at each other after our wins and catch each other after our losses. Together, there is nothing we cannot do.
