What Students Are Saying
4.13 Average Rating
The classes are very personal and adv., but it is worth it. You can also create your own major if one isn't available.

We have a pretty broad range of difficulty in classes, but the professors really want to help you succeed.

Sweet Briar is academically challenging. The Professors constantly provide challenges for us to overcome and excel because they know that we are capable of whatever they throw at us. They are always willing to help us when we get stuck.

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.
Work hard and you will achieve great things.

most students spend anywhere from three to five hours a day working on coursework outside of the allotted time in the classroom. i have yet to be assigned "busy work" so everything i have been putting my time towards has benefited me or will benefit me in my career choice.

Classes are tough. Because of our round-table discussion style of learning, you have to know your stuff, but you also get so much more out of your education. By the same token, professors care a lot about their students, so if you are struggling you can always go to them.
Great classes, small, the professors do care about your grades. if you need help they are there for you
