|The New York Times: The Independent Women of Sweet Briar|
I'm sure that my friends are wondering why I keep posting about #savesweetbriar all over my Facebook and Twitter timelines. This New York Times article explains why.
Sweet Briar College was the only school I wanted to attend. I never imagined myself at a women's college (no boys???), yet the moment my mother and I drove up the long, winding driveway to campus, I felt like I had come home. (Sorry for ever doubting you, mom!)
At Sweet Briar, I was not an anonymous student lost in a sea of unfamiliar faces.
Saving Sweet Briar is the least I can do for an institution that gave me the foundation to become a smarter, more adventurous, more independent woman.
