Sweet Briar College Vixens
Sweet Briar, VA
Sweet Briar opened in 1906 with 51 students. The A.B. degree was immediately recognized by graduate programs at leading universities — and three of the College’s first five graduates went on to pursue advanced degrees.
In 2015, when its administration attempted to close Sweet Briar, our alumnae took charge. They fought back in the courts and on social media. In keeping with Sweet Briar’s tradition of educating women to get things done, they delivered.
Today, Sweet Briar continues the traditions of the Honor Code and self-governance pioneered by Sweet Briar’s very first class. Our roots are strong and run deep.
