Fireworks lit the night sky following a full day of fun at the Stubbs Festival.

Mega Reunion

The 1960s and 1970s reception provided a chance to reconnect with friends and look through Longwood yearbooks.


Alumni started the day off right with early morning yoga on Wheeler Lawn.

Mega Reunion 2018 brought together hundreds of alumni—including for the first time many of the newest members of that group, the about-to-graduate Class of 2018—to celebrate old and new friendships and enjoy a fun and relaxing weekend on campus.

Foot massage

What could be better than getting a foot massage while catching up with friends?

The event, dubbed Mega Reunion because of its scope (all alumni are invited back to celebrate with others from their decade), began in 2017 to great fanfare. The vision is to bring alumni together when campus is at its most beautiful and energetic.


Members of the Class of 2008 join the class parade to Wheeler Lawn.

“I haven’t been back on campus since my 45th reunion five years ago,” said Alice Collier Cochran ’68, “and Longwood seems to have gotten even more beautiful than I remember. There was an incredible sense of energy and community on campus. Having all the different generations together was such a wonderful atmosphere, and I genuinely didn’t want to leave Farmville.” 

Color wars

It was the red classes vs. the green classes for another epic paint battle! 

Fun for all - 7

The Lancer Family Picnic under the big top provided a chance to catch up with friends and reminisce about life at Longwood.
