2020 Fall Open Houses

We've designed our open house events to help you get a true sense of what it's like to be a student at Sweet Briar College. You'll socialize with current students and hear about their experiences, tour the Harriet Howell Rogers Riding Center, and eat in the dining hall (it's delicious!). There'll be plenty of time for you to ask all the important questions to help you decide if Sweet Briar is right for you.
