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.

    sweet briar college has a unique and unidentifiable element to it. while a lot of colleges give prospectives the impression that they will be remolded during their college experience sweet briar offers a new metaphor. sweet briar college is an institution where at first you'll believe you have strengths and weakness, but during your time at sweet briar you'll discover how to capitalize on your strengths while developing your "weaknesses" to a point where you feel comfortable enough to claim you don't have any.

    Sweet Briar is, at it's core, a place of love and community. I have found the closest friends of my life, in both my peers and my faculty members. SBC is a wonderful haven of female empowerment where your education is everything you choose to make it.

    Sweet Briar is a great school with great academic programs. I especially love the activities that go on around campus, not just parties, but traditions and many others as well. There are a lot of friendly people here, you will probably meet every single person in your class in one semester.

    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.
