Discover Sweet Briar
Whether you want to attend an open house, schedule a personal visit, or just drop by, we hope you will visit campus to see why so many woman have made Sweet Briar their home-away-from-home.

Open House

At all of our open house events, you'll see firsthand why Sweet Briar College is a great place to attend college – a beautiful campus, dedicated professors, exciting academic programs and a wonderful community.

For our fall open houses we've designed a variety of events that are tailored to your individual talents and goals. During our Shadow Day events, we match you with a current student and you can spend the day with her - in classes, in the residence halls, in the dining hall, and exploring campus.

Learn more about our Honors, Performing Arts, and Riding programs by attending our Special Interest Days on select Saturdays this fall. Then stick around for the Admission Open Houses on the following Sundays for a walking tour of campus, events with faculty, staff and current students, sessions on admission processes and financial aid, and much more.

If you don't see something above that interests you, please contact the admission office directly at (800) 381-6142 to arrange an individual visit. We also offer travel reimbursements, so be sure to ask about those.
