2019 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, have lunch with faculty, participate in student life events, tour the Harriet Howell Rogers Riding Center, and eat in the dining hall (it's delicious!).
