Image of Sweet Briar College Sweet Briar College:
Sweet Briar College, located in Sweet Briar (about 12 miles north of Lynchburg), Virginia, is a liberal arts and sciences college for women offering a range of Certificate, Pre-Professional, Bachelor Degree & Masters Degree programs.

Sweet Briar's vibrant campus is a true community — home to students and to approximately half of our faculty as well as many staff members. It is also a living laboratory, which provides hands-on opportunities for exploration and discovery in nearly every discipline from the classics and anthropology to the sciences and engineering. Our 3,250 acres of rolling hills and meadows in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains include two lakes, six nature sanctuaries, and an extensive network of walking, horseback riding, and hiking trails. History and archaeology students enjoy a particularly rich setting for research as the campus was a working plantation in the 18th and 19th centuries. The main campus buildings are nestled at the center of this broad landscape.
