Early May marks the end of the academic year for many college students nationwide, but for students at central Virginia’s Sweet Briar College, the end of classes this week is bittersweet. The 114-year-old college announced it will close its doors in August because of diminished finances, a move that has prompted three legal challenges in an attempt to save the private women’s college. We explore what it would take to delay — or even halt — the closing of this historic institution, and find out how the fight for Sweet Briar is affecting students, faculty and alumni.
