Fun in the sun

Longwood University is joining in this summertime fun by organizing alumni group outings to four different professional baseball games this summer. You are invited to join us for one or more of these fun events where we will sit together in a group and enjoy picnicking or just reconnecting before the first pitch.

What a great way to celebrate the start of the weekend, alongside fellow Lancer alumni and family. Children are more than welcome. When they see how much fun we have, they may very well decide that they too want to be Lancers when it comes time for college!


Whether you cheer on the home team, root for the visiting team, or just enjoy the camaraderie and food, there will be no better way to spend a weekend.
