I don’t have to tell you that Sweet Briar is an inclusive community of learners. You’ve hopefully have gotten that through reading this blog, meandering through our website and the like. But it’s something we can’t stress enough–our students, while challenged and pushed in the classroom, are supported by our community.
As we count the days (Days, people, DAYS!) until our class of 2015 moves in, we as a community are gearing up to support them as then start their journey here at SBC. One of the ways we do that is through our point of contact program, which is a program where faculty and staff members are paired up with incoming students to help be an adult on campus that they can go to if they have questions about anything: registering for classes, where a building is, where the best cup of coffee can be located, who has the best candy jar, and those sorts of things. With being on campus more this year, I was very excited to sign up to be a POC, and have two wonderful students, EW and AM, who have already asked wonderful questions! I’m so thrilled to get to know them more, and to see the wonderful things they’re going to do here at SBC.
So whether your gearing up to move in shortly, or your discovering Sweet Briar for the first time, know this–we certainly have your back!
