This is a place where all students can come and be themselves—free of judgment—and develop into citizen leaders.

Welcome to the N.H. Scott Multicultural Center, a vibrant hub on the third floor of Upchurch University Center, named after Longwood's trailblazer, Nancy H. "Cookie" Scott '72, our first African-American graduate.

It's not just a space; it's a cozy lounge within the Office of Multicultural Affairs where underrepresented students and culturally based organizations find community and fun.

Explore our Resource Library – a treasure trove of movies, books, articles, and magazines. Dive into various cultures, identities, and social justice topics. All you need is your LU student ID and all materials can be checked out for one week.
