SWEET BRIAR, Va (WRIC) — Sweet Briar College Alumni have been trying to raise money to keep the school open after the board of directors voted to close the school Tuesday as a result of “insurmountable financial challenges.”
Current students have been forced to transfer to other schools and students who have been admitted for the Fall 2015 semester are also receiving assistance to find new schools to attend.
Even with all this going on, alumnae have found a way to start an online campaign where people can donate money to help save the college.
The campaign has raised $1 million out of their $20 million goal.
