Longwood University Black Alumni Weekend was created to lay the groundwork for a substantive connection between alumni and its current body with the goal of promoting academic achievement, retention and increased graduation rates for minority students. This year's theme is "Reclaiming our past, reaffirming our future, and preserving our legacy." Events include meet and greet opportunities, social activities, speed networking and mentoring sessions, featured speakers, a tour of Moton Museum and Town Hall meeting with BASIC Combined Choir Performance. Registration costs: $25 for alumni and $5 for students. Proceeds and registration fees will assist with planning events for the Longwood University Black Alumni Reunion Weekend and the Longwood University Black Alumni Scholarship fund.
