JOAN PERRY BROCK CENTER

It will be a rallying place. Those shared experiences are very important, locking arms with your neighbors, going forward together with a common goal.
~ Joan Perry Brock '64

THE HEART OF CAMPUS


From the celebratory cheers of Convocation to raucous crowd chants at a sold-out Division I playoff basketball game, the spirit of Longwood will reverberate in the Joan Perry Brock Center. With its stunning facade facing downtown Farmville, the convocation center will not only host concerts, lectures and rival teams, but the traditions that keep our spirit strong.

A CENTER OF THE COMMUNITY


Just a short walk from Longwood’s seven residence halls, the Joan Perry Brock Center will be an important bridge between main campus and downtown’s resurgent Main Street. Easily accessed by foot from downtown restaurants, bars and shopping options, the space promises to be an integral part of life in Farmville.

ENERGY AND SPIRIT


Stomp-stomp-clap. Calls for an encore. A convocation speaker’s voice resonating through the stands.

Whether you’re sitting courtside or in the iconic student bleachers with the Lancer Lunatics, the Joan Perry Brock Center has the capacity for large crowds while still maintaining the community feeling that typifies Longwood. At 72,000 square feet, the space is flexible enough to fit a variety of needs and uses.

 

A WEEK IN THE LIFE


The Joan Perry Brock Center will be a home to Longwood’s basketball teams and much, much more: a gathering space for campus events and traditions like the Honor and Integrity Ceremony, an attraction for high-caliber musicians and performers, and a charming space for academic and cultural events throughout the year.
