In keeping with tradition, Commencement is held outside on Wheeler Mall, rain or shine. Longwood does not have an indoor facility large enough to accommodate our graduates and guests. The rain plan will be put in place in the event of extreme weather events only and will be announced by 6 a.m. on the day of commencement at the latest.
The Inter-Fraternity Council will be selling flowers and the Longwood Bookstore will have Longwood gift items available for sale. Look for the tables on Wheeler Mall near the Blackwell Fountain.
Longwood Dining Services will offer various snacks, drinks, and breakfast biscuits for sale on Wheeler Mall.
Free bus shuttle service is provided from 7:45 a.m.-9:15 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m.at the following locations: Longwood Village, Comfort Inn, Days Inn, Super 8, Sunchase, Hampton Inn, and Lancer Park.
Shuttles will also run between the Wynne parking lot to front of Jarman Hall near Wheeler Mall. Signs posted on Main Street will direct you to the Wynne lot at the corner of Main Street and Wynne Drive (near #42 on the Printable Campus Map).
