Your Lancer family is just as committed to your final exams as you are, and we make sure you get the most out of study breaks. Fill up at Late Night Breakfast, cuddle up with a four-legged friend at Study Paws, and tackle the stacks at Greenwood Library events. Happy studying!

Late Night Breakfast

Professors, don your aprons!

What’s better than eggs, biscuits and bacon after the sun goes down to get students prepared for finals week? In our eyes, nothing. Late Night Breakfast relieves the stress that comes along with the end of the semester.

At Late Night Breakfast, your professors and staff dish up all your favorites. Feel free to come back for seconds.

It’s nice to give students a few hours where they don’t have to be stressed about exams. It’s a chance to blow off some steam before their all-important finals.

And as students eat, they are treated to high-energy music provided by the student-run radio station, WMLU 91.3. Their mascot may even make an appearance!

When life gets too stressful, pet a puppy!

Study Paws

During the last week of school, Longwood faculty and staff bring their dogs to campus to help students decompress with some furry friends and take the edge off those final exams. See you there!

Late Night in the Library

Study breaks at their best! 

Late Night Library

Formally known as Fort Finals, the Greenwood Library offers late-night exam-cram stress relief throughout finals week. Try your hand at coloring and crafts; pep up with some free coffee and sugary snacks; or stretch out your study break in a Study Room Yoga session.
