Message from President of the Alumnae Association

I have the pleasure of posting a message from the President of the Alumnae Association on the First Year Blog this week:

On behalf of the Alumnae Association of Sweet Briar College, I am writing to extend my sincere welcome to new students and parents as you join our community. Our board members are looking forward to connecting with new parents, and getting to know your daughters during her years on campus and as our future alumnae. Her time at Sweet Briar will be filled with learning, experiencing, and growing into a leader of tomorrow.

The Board of the Association is committed to engaging alumnae, creating opportunities for student internships and careers, involving faculty, staff, and students in the alumnae community, and promoting annual giving.

Even though you are not yet on campus, there will be many ways you can be involved with Sweet Briar and her alumnae!

Attend Sweet Briar Days and Back To School events in your area.
Stay connected through Sweet Briar’s Facebook page, Magazine, and other publications.
Identify prospective students in your community, neighborhood, or local high school.
Support recruitment opportunities in your community.

Please note that the Alumnae Board is available to parents as a resource. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or just to introduce yourself.

I hope to see you at Homecoming and Families Weekend on October 25 – 27, 2013.

Homecoming 2010 Photos-As Promised!

Homecoming 2010 was a smashing success! We had 491 students in attendance! The entire weekend was beautiful and provided numerous opportunities for students to connect with alums. Meridith De Avila Khan in our Media, Marketing, and Communication department took tons of photos at homecoming. I hope you enjoy reviewing them.

Homecoming is Here!

The excitement has begun!

Over 1000 students, alumnae, faculty, staff, board members, and guests will be gathering this weekend for Homecoming 2010! The theme for this year is: “Be A Part of the Story. Your Story. Sweet Briar College.” I’m excited to say that over 84% of our first-year students have chosen to be a part of the story. The homecoming schedule can be found online at this link. As a Homecoming Co-Chair and Assistant Dean of First Year Programs, I am excited about celebrating the Class of 2014′s first homecoming! I plan to post photos early next week.
