4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most of the professors I have had were amazing. There is only one that I was not fond of, but the professors always make sure we understand what is going on and they let us know that they are always here for us and we can come to office hours

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am not really sure, I am looking more and more into this as returing to school is getting closer

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: We don't really have much of a problem with this kind of thing

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have never had any problems with the housing on campus, although there are some dorms that need to be renovated

4 College Senior

Athletics: I work at the gym so I am a little biased, but I know a lot of the girls who play one or two sports and they live every second of it

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: We were supposed to close last year, but we didn't. That should tell you something about the people that have gone there and young women who continue to attend.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sweet Briar allows students to balance a rigorous academic course load with extracurriculars and internship and research opportunities. This college prepares students for success in the "real world."

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A degree from a women's liberal arts college is highly valued.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety is never a concern on campus. Campus safety is effective and aware and problems are taken care of swiftly. I have never felt unsafe while on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: DIII Sports allow students to balance their academics and their varsity sport. Funding is adequate and the GPA of athletes are higher than the overall campus GPA

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: SBC has a rigorous curriculum, wonderful traditions, and amazing research and career opportunities (if you work for them).

5 College Junior

Athletics: I only participate in one sport

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am enjoying Sweet Briar

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are many resources available to students.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors are personable, helpful, available. Courses are interesting, applicable to the real world. Classes are personalized and attention is given to every student.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Beautiful, historic buildings. Spacious dorm rooms with high ceilings and large closets and windows.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus security is there at all times. After 6pm campus security is out at the guard gate to have those who do not belong to SBC to sign in. I have never felt threatened on campus. In fact the scariest thing just might be the wild animals which are carefully observed as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a variety of courses to take and you will not have a problem finding something that you like. Most professors are there to help. You can have classes that are only two to classes that are 25(but those are very rare). The larger classes are typically lecture but most of the ones I have taken tend to be discussion based.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The college may be small but the alums are always there to help out. They come from all different backgrounds so opportunities are everywhere. Career services has always been helpful and does weekly/biweekly talks. Its rural so jobs/internships opportunities during the school year are going to be at least 30 minutes out or more.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We do not have many teams on campus but are supported. There is always someone to cheer them on but it is not the amount of people you would see at a typical school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sweet Briar has always felt like home. That is what drew me to it. The professors are always there for you n matter what Would I choose SBC again? Yes, and in fact I did. When my college was supposed to close and then reopened I went back because it was the only place I could see myself. Its so much more than just a college.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Sweet Briar so much. Just stepping on campus for the first time made me realize that this was the school for me.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my school it's such a wonderful place to be. The small rural setting is absolutely perfect for me but Lynchburg is close enough and has anything you could ever want to do off campus. The all women's aspect wasn't a plus for me until I came to Sweet Briar and now I value you my all women's education more then I would ever would have guessed. Sweet Briar is such a special place and you don't understand that until you step foot onto campus and see for yourself the beauty of the landscape, people and education.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm getting use to all changes within my school and the small amount of girls but overall i love the school and everything they offer to me and they are always to willing to help in anyway.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my college. Everything about it, from the amazingly beautiful 3,200 acre campus to the comfortable small student body, is what I wanted in my education. The dorms are beautiful, with the dorm I'm in this year (as well as most of last year) being built in 1912. Despite the large campus size, all of the important buildings are close together, providing a wonderful walk to class every day! There are always fun events on the weekend to participate in. With the student body as small as it is, there are opportunities to participate in student activities and be an officer of whatever you want to! Women's colleges provide wonderful opportunities to those who choose to attend one, and with the rate of students employed immediately after graduation as high as it is for women's colleges, there's no place I'd rather be.
