elizzie19 said: How do you like sweet briar? How is the college feel such as parties ECT? Without boys? And how do you feel the teaching is compared to co ed schools?

I graduated in 2011 and miss it every day :( :)

I really enjoyed the balance of work and play. Being at a women’s college means you can choose when and how you party. Parties on campus at the Boathouse are a popular Thursday night activity, and friends get together for smaller parties whenever they want or you can visit other colleges. That means campus always looks pristine and you never feel like you can’t escape it when you have to study.

I took some co-ed classes when I studied abroad, and I loved the preparation that a single-sex education gave me; you never feel intimidated or pushed out of conversation. And once I had that sort of confidence in myself and my thoughts, I’m unwilling to give it up just because I find myself in a coed environment (such as work, now). I think the education I received was top-notch:  from the single-sex classroom to the quality of teachers and the projects, homework, lessons we were able to have because of the small classes. 

That said, not every college is for everyone. Sweet Briar is basically a village of people in the middle of a large field in central virginia :) I recommend you take a tour and see how you feel. If it feels like home, if it feels like somewhere you can meet people and be comfortable, the rest will fall into place.

1967 Briar Patch- the Aints and Asses all dressed up for their foto. The era in which AnA patrolled students off the grass, published the Sweet Briar Blues, and based their Ass Shows as parodies of PnP productions. I’m not sure what the Dismay Court is. Anyone?

*this scene is possibly the most nostalgic I’ve ever felt about my time at Sweet Briar. Do I hear an ‘Amen’? Pictures of students at large dining tables is pro-ssibly the most longest running tradition in our publications.
