Welcome to the City logo overlapping skylines of Norfolk, Richmond, Fairfax and DC

2021 marks the fifth annual Welcome to the City series, regional events designed to help Longwood's newest alumni—and your new neighbors—discover the best places to live, work and play in your area. After a one-year hiatus, we are incredibly excited to finally have the opportunity to celebrate both the Classes of 2020 and 2021! This year we’ll be hitting four spots over four nights! Find the city closest to you and register today.
