An exciting transition to life at Longwood

During your first four days at Longwood, you'll have the chance to meet fellow freshmen as well as some other friendly Lancers that know the ropes. We'll answer your questions, prepare you for challenges and tell you about all of the helpful resources available to you at Longwood.

Since you'll need to know these things, New Lancer Days is required. Choose your move-in date below to see a schedule of events!

I'm moving in on Aug. 19 I'm moving in on Aug. 20
