What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that there is definitely room to improve, but the faculty genuinely care about the students here. You have to push for what you need as far as Financial Aid goes, but if you ask for help, you will receive help. Yes, it's an all girls school, so there will be drama. If you stay out of it and stay friendly, it won't touch you and it won't hurt you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am not currently living at Sweet Briar College, but I have visited and toured the campus. I am currently enrolled for the upcoming fall semester, and I am very excited! Everyone at the college is so nice, and they make you feel right at home. The professors I talked to were very professional and seemed to love being available to their students 24/7. I loved visiting Sweet Briar, and it was an easy choice for me to pick it as my future college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Sweet Briar is an amazing school. The teachers here are ready to help you any way they can and with such small classes that makes it better. The only complaints I have are the following: 1.The school is not that diverse but the school is working to fix that. 2.Due to the location of the school, you are not able to leave campus without a car so a lot of people carpool. 3. Some girls come from rich families so they tend to not be able to do small things such as (laundry or cleaning their own dishes etc.) which causes problems if all the laundry machines are taken or the hall sink is full.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

With the exception of needing to go elsewhere during the weekends for social events (No more than an hour away), the campus is beautiful, and campus life is great. The class sizes are small and the teachers are more than happy to help in and out of the classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel that Sweet Briar is an amazing institute that enables women to grow and develop into leaders that can go out and conquer the world. The professors are extremely helpful and always willing to give advice on their specialized topics or just life in general.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school! It is a perfect fit for students who want a small class size on a big open campus with plenty of room. Our professors are very accessible and are always happy to help students inside and outside of the classroom. I am a student-athlete and the athletic program is highly supported and encouraged at Sweet Briar, with a large percentage of student-athletes in the population. Also, the support we receive from alums is fantastic and a lot of times we are visited by alums on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Sweet Briar College, from the small class size(no more than 30 students per class), to the beautiful campus there is not much to hate. This tiny all girls college has it all, all kinds sports, a fantastic science department, and a great art department, as well as a close sister-ship with current and past students. All of the teachers are great and easily accessible; they have long office hours and are willing to meet you outside of them if the hours do not work for you.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Dear Highschool Bethany, I know you have heard the phrase "old habits die hard". That statement is more true than anything. Study your hardest and do not ever blow off your homework to go get icecream with your friends. Those friends are not going to get you a degree or pay you for keeping them company. Quit misplacing your pencils and always use a pen to take notes (highlighters smear the pencil lead). Invest in notecards! It is easier to flip through a hundred small cards with one subject on each one as compared to a decrepit notebook. The last thing I have to tell you is to never take the meals mother makes you for granted. Treasure those homecooked meals. Forever yours, College Bethany

Describe the students at your school.

Most of my classmates are racist, prejudice, ignorant, close-minded individuals with little regard for anyone's feelings, or view points, other than their own.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

High School Me, When you look in the mirror you don’t see yourself. Instead you see what society sees- nothing; nothing as in invisible, invisible as in unseen, unworthy, unable, unattractive, and unheard. Yes, I am aware you are a “double whammy” black and female and underestimated. Don’t let that stop you. Stand up straight, keep your head held high, and have some confidence in yourself and your abilities. I know this is easier said than done, but I urge you to try. You are an intelligent girl with a passion for learning, a hunger for knowledge, and future that is as luminous as the moon. Although you have trouble seeing the light inside of you I implore you to take a closer look. Remember: if you do not believe in yourself, no one ever will.

What's unique about your campus?

The best part about my school are the professors. They are, for the most part, open-minded, engaging, and dedicated to the growth and success of their students. Sweet Briar professors have very high expectations of their students and push them to be the very best they can be.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise myself to not get caught up in the idea of what you think you are going to become in college. So many individuals think they are going to go to college and be a different person than whom they were in high school. While this is true for many individuals, there is always part of you that is going to remain no matter where you go. Don't choose a school because you like that it embodies the eprson you hope to become and you can see yourself fitting in there eventually. College is a huge adjustment and you can't completely alter who you are during that transition. Also, don't deny that you are going to be homesick sometimes. Everybody thinks that they won't be and many people just want to escape where they have grown up but a part of you will always be where you came from. Choose a college that you can truly see yourself at, not only the idea of being there.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Again, the most frustrating thing is location.
