The level of difficulty in the courses vary just like they would anywhere. Most of the professors give you a syllabus for the semester and expect you to stay on top of the deadlines. If you struggle in a class there is this place called the ARC where tutors who are majoring in the subject can help you out with homework, papers, etc.

    I fell in love with Sweet Briar <3 The class sizes are small, therefore you get to know your professors :) The campus is full of trails and opportunity.

    This one of the most tight knit and tradition-based schools I have found. There is a great emphasis on an individual learning- you are not a number here. The small class sizes make the learning process engaging and brings out the student's intrest.
