SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Chegg, the Student Hub, in partnership with bareMinerals Blemish Remedy, today announced Sweet Briar College as the winner of a once-in-a-lifetime visit from Stand by You and Fight Song singer, Rachel Platten through Chegg Music 101.
Sweet Briar College amassed the most votes through the online contest. This win has a particularly special meaning for Sweet Briar College, which nearly closed its doors in 2015.
