Becoming part of the Longwood Network is easy and fun.  Just choose what time bundles you'd like to participate in each month to reach your one hour!


What is the 1 Hour a Month program?

Our 1 Hour a Month program is the easiest way to stay in-touch with your alma mater. We’ve put together simple time bundles for you to participate in each month and earn awesome Longwood rewards. Many of the time bundles include things that you are already doing, like sharing Longwood events and initiatives on social media, connecting with fellow alumni, and helping current Longwood students find internship and job opportunities.

How it works…

Once you sign up for our 1 Hour a Month program we’ll send you email reminders each month to participate in the program. The monthly reminders will even give you opportunities to attend exclusive events, participate in one-of-a-kind initiatives, and earn extra Lancers gear.

When you complete your month, simply fill out our online form. We’ll tally your points for you and send you a fresh 1 Hour reward when you reach a rewards threshold.

Mix & Match

There are no rules on how to reach one hour.

Alumni can do one 15-minute bundle four times, or they can mix and match. One alumnus completed an hour by endorsing a fellow Lancer on LinkedIn, sharing a photo of his pledge class on Founder's Day, and emailing two fellow Lancers about a job opening at his company.

 


 

Priority Bundle - 1 Hour

  • The #LongwoodFaves Challenge: It’s a Longwood phenomenon. You keep discovering that many of your favorite people—friends, co-workers or others you admire—are Longwood people too!
