This Fall in Photos

Student life has been in full swing this fall, and we’ve got the photos to prove it.

From Family Weekend in September to Oktoberfest, from Lip Sync to Halloween and everything in between, your Lancers have been making the most of their extracurricular college experience—always secondary to their academic studies, of course.

Check out the photo albums below, and you might catch a glimpse of your student!

Lip Sync Battle

What could be better than singing and dancing the night away with a group of friends? Add some friendly competition among Greek organizations, and you’ve got a Longwood tradition that rocks.

Nursing White Coat Ceremony

When Longwood nursing sophomores are cloaked in their bright new white coats, they mark an important transformative moment in the life of any pre-service nurse: entrance into clinical practice. The white coat ceremony symbolizes the deep-rooted mission of both the Longwood and the nursing program: commitment to the community and humanistic care.

The Halloween Scene

Have your students outgrown Halloween? One look at these photos will give you the answer to that question. With haunted houses, the baseball team’s Spooky Slugfest, pumpkin carvings and more, students stretched out their Halloween celebration for maximum effect this year.

A Friendly Game of Football

For more than a decade, Longwood’s top intramural flag football team and its counterpart at Hampden-Sydney College, located just down the road, have engaged in a friendly rivalry, alternating hosting duties each year. This year was Longwood’s turn to stage the game on its home turf at Lancer Park, making the Lancers’ victory all the sweeter. Intramural basketball teams from the two schools have a similar annual matchup in the spring.


Concerts, Color Wars and Klowns, oh my! Thanks to Hurricane Ian, Oktoberfest 2022 stretched over two weekends, and students made the most of the elongated schedule.
