Parents Association

Longwood University Parents Association

Longwood University recognizes that the success of its students is, in part, due to the support of parents, step-parents, grandparents, and other family members. Longwood wishes to maintain strong and positive relations with parents and family members of all Longwood students.

All parents, guardians, and families are members of the Parents Association by virtue of having a student at Longwood University!  The Parents Association serves to welcome families to the Longwood community and membership is free of charge! 



The Longwood Parents Council invites parents and families attending Family Weekend to a reception with members of the Longwood community.  Family Weekend will be held in September, 2013. Please check back for additional details.


The Fall 2013 meeting will take place during Family Weekend, 2013.  Family Weekend will occur in September.  A continental breakfast will be served.  This is an opportunity for parents and families to hear from Longwood administrators and government officials from the Town of Farmville. 

Please check back for the meeting schedule and additional information about Family Weekend.


The Parents Association, created in the Spring Semester of 2009, includes parents and guardians of all Longwood students and is free of charge.
