We have rolled Family Weekend and Homecoming into one big extravaganza: WildCat Weekend! It’s a time for all members of the Randolph family to gather together on campus.

Visit and reconnect with students and their families, alumnae and alumni, and faculty and staff, while enjoying special activities, such as music performances, athletic events, stargazing at the Winfree Observatory, the President’s Brunch for Families, Physics Phun, WildCat Tailgate, scavenger hunt at the Maier Museum of Art, DJ dance party, and much more.


There is no fee to attend WildCat Weekend events, but registration may be required for some events.  You may want to bring money for meals, cash bars, and swag from the Campus Store.


A room block with a special rate has been reserved for visitors. This is a very busy weekend at the College and in Lynchburg, so make accommodation plans at your earliest convenience.
