What is Family Weekend?
Sponsored by the Office of the Student Union and Involvement, Longwood’s Family Weekend is an annual tradition that we invite you to be a part of year after year. Longwood wants you to experience all that we have to offer. We want you to come be a part of Longwood, if for only a weekend. Join in on as many activities as possible and witness for yourself our supportive Longwood community, where all members of the community learn to excel in and outside the classroom. We are proud of our students and we know you are too, that’s why we want to surround them with their family & friends and for all to have a fun filled weekend.

Events & Activities
Each year, the list of events and activities is slammed full of fun and exciting things to do including food, games, comedians, musicians and workshops. Though the events change year to year, you can always expect a few events that reappear annually. The weekend begins Friday evening with a welcome reception to get things started off. A wonderful continental breakfast is served on Saturday morning just before the annual Captain’s Choice golf tournament. You can then sit down and relax at our picnic lunch while watching the festivities at our Family Weekend Carnival. Then head off to one of many educational workshops on various topics. You can catch a campus tour or a Lancers athletic event as well. Cap off the evening with a wonderful catered dinner while enjoying musical performances by Longwood students. Before you leave on Sunday, you can’t miss the Sunday Jazz Brunch where the Longwood Jazz ensemble performs while you enjoy the last moments of Family Weekend.
