Sweet Briar College is located on the former plantation of Elijah Fletcher and his family. Fletcher was a teacher, businessman, and mayor of Lynchburg. His wife, Maria Crawford, is credited with naming the land Sweet Briar. By the mid-1800s, Fletcher had between 80 and 100 slaves at the plantation. After their emancipation in 1865, several continued to work and live at Sweet Briar for pay. When Elijah Fletcher died, his daughter Indiana inherited the plantation. When she passed in 1900, she willed the land and much of her assets to go towards starting a college for women. The goal, as stated by Williams, is to prepare young women to be "useful members of society."


The campus is situated on 3,250 acres (13 km²) in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The college's architecture is dominated by the work of Ralph Adams Cram, who also lent his architectural expertise to the campuses of Princeton University and West Point, among others. The campus property also includes Sweet Briar Burial Ground, in which upwards of 60 slaves were buried. A slave cabin remains on the land as well, and archaeologists have found many slave artifacts that help them to piece together what slave life might have been like. 21 of the 30 buildings on campus have been designated as the "Sweet Briar National Historic District" by the National Register of Historic Places.

Traditions

Sweet Briar cherishes its many traditions. A tradition is a story or a custom that is memorized and passed down from generation to generation, originally without the need for a writing system. ...

  • Class landmarks - The Senior Steps (which only seniors may use, although an underclassman may if a senior invites them), Junior Bench (which only seniors and juniors may use, or underclassman if a senior or junior invites them), Sophomore Rock and Freshmen Hitching Post.
  • Spring and Fall Step Singing - seniors sit on the senior steps while the other three classes sit surrounding the senior steps and the classes serenade each other with meaningful and humorous songs
  • Sisters - incoming first years become "little sisters" to their junior "big sisters" who help them assimilate to college life
  • Secret Sophomore - sophomores pick a senior to give gifts to over the course of their final year, and are revealed at the end of the year
  • Tap clubs - selective societies with specific community functions
  • Junior Banquet - juniors receive their class rings and have to "earn" their senior's robe by dressing up for a week. The senior will also either elaborately decorate their junior's room, or prank them in some way through their room (messing it up or moving the furniture)
  • Lantern Bearing - seniors march with their sophomore sisters, with beautifully decorated lanterns either made or ordered by the sophomore. The senior is wearing her senior robe, and the sophomores traditionally wearing a white dress.
  • The Rock and Hitching Post - paint fight between the freshmen and sophomores in the fall which ends when the sophomores cede the post to the freshmen. The hitching post and the sophomore rock will be also be painted different colors during the academic year, either to memorialize a school event or as a prank.
  • Founder's Day - the Sweet Briar community walks up to Monument Hill, where the founder's daughter is buried, and celebrate the beginning of the school year
  • Each class has its own colors, motto and Latin emblem, which rotate every four years.

Tap Clubs

Sweet Briar does not have a formal Greek system. Instead, many women are members of Tap Clubs, so named because new members are "tapped" (that is, woken up in the middle of the night) rather than rushed as in a traditional Greek sorority. In addition students can belong to more than one tap club, and they do not live in sorority houses. Some clubs tap in the fall but most tap in the spring. There are tap clubs for many different interests, and rivalries between the clubs run deep.

  • Paint and Patches--Sweet Briar's oldest tap club, founded in 1901. PnP is comprised of theater enthusiasts, both actors and technical staff. PnP has the largest budget of any club on campus (excluding Campus Events), because it sponsors theater productions. The rival tap club is the Aints 'n' Asses.
  • Aints 'n' Asses--Often referred to as simply "Asses," the Asses are outgoing and boisterous. The Asses put on Ass Shows--comical, light theater for satirical purposes. Their rival tap club is Paint and Patches.
  • QVs--The QVs are elected by their class at the end of freshman year. The main purpose of the QVs is to encourage sophomore class spirit--during the year they will do secret "drops" (small gifts of candy and presents) for their fellow sophomores. Sophomore QVs are completely anonymous except to current and former QVs--during the school year the junior Bum Chums try to find out who all the current QVs are, in what is known as The Game. The winner of The Game is decided by how many of the current QVs are revealed by spring step singing. The QVs rival tap club is the Bum Chums.
  • Bum Chums--The formal purpose of the Bum Chums is "to bring the sophomore class together." Each year, at the end of sophomore year, a new group of Bums is tapped to continue with the next class. The Bums try to find out the identity of all of the new sophomore QVs (their rival club).
  • Sweet Tones--The only tap club with auditions, the Sweet Tones are Sweet Briar's a capella singing group. Their rival tap club is the Earphones.
  • Earphones--The Earphones are not known for singing on key. They are, however, often seen at sporting events, cheering on the Vixens. Their rival tap club is Sweet Tones.
  • Taps 'n' Toes--TnT is the tap club for dance enthusiasts. Participation in two or more dance concerts is required to be considered for membership. Their rival tap club is Falls on Nose.
  • Falls on Nose--FoN is a relatively new tap club on campus, focused on volunteerism. Their rival tap club is Taps 'n Toes.
  • Tau Phi--Tau Phis are academic and erudite. There was, at one point, a GPA requirement to be tapped as a Tau Phi. This was dropped in recent years, due to new policies regarding access to student academic records. Their rival tap club is the Chung Mungs.
  • Chung Mungs--Chung Mungs are known to be the women who do everything around campus, but are rarely given credit for all of their hard work. It is fitting, then, that the Chung Mungs conduct the campus Ghost Tours. Their rival tap club is Tau Phi.

Campus Life

  • Sweet Briar is residential campus, and nearly all students are required to live on campus for their entire time at SBC. There are seven standard dormitories, and the Patteson House, available to upperclasswomen, which provides a more independent living.
  • SBC has over 50 clubs and organizations

The Honor Code

Sweet Briar women do not lie, cheat, steal or violate the rights of others. Therefore I pledge to uphold all standards of honorable conduct. I will report myself and others for any infraction of this pledge.

At Sweet Briar, the Honor Code pervades every aspect of everyday life. First-years are required to memorize the pledge and take a test on it before they are allowed to hand in and Pledge any academic work. All academic work must be Pledged, and the consequences for violating that pledge are severe. However, the Honor Code has non-academic applications as well. It is generally understood that the women on campus also adhere to the Honor Code, which creates an environment of trust which is uniquely Sweet Briar. It is not uncommon to see women leave their laptops on the table in the library while they run to lunch. Bags are left unattended, and money left lying out will usually remain there until someone sticks it in a charity box.
