College For A Weekend in April! REGISTER TODAY

Important CFAW Documents:

Attention Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors!

Join HSM as we travel to Lynchburg, Virginia for Liberty University’s College For A Weekend!

You’ll experience life at Liberty from the perspective of a college student.

  • Stay in the dorms
  • Eat on campus
  • Attend Division I athletics
  • See a major concert
  • Ski, swim, explore, and so much more!

The cost for the entire weekend is just $50. This includes your 9 meals for the weekend! Please read the instruction sheet to register with our group. You MUST register/pay through Liberty U. All details are in the downloadable “How To” form.


Because choosing a college is a major decision that will impact the rest of your life, Liberty University’s College For A Weekend (CFAW) lets you experience life at Liberty firsthand and decide if it is right for you.

We will stop for one meal on the trip up and back, and the students may want to try the Snowflex Center, which costs $10. So, $25-$30 of spending money should be sufficient. There is also a concert, paintball and horseback riding at an extra cost. Check for those costs online at www.liberty.edu/cfaw.

The $50 registration fee covers meals from Thursday supper through Sunday lunch, housing in a dorm room (probably on the floor!), and admission to Convocation, student activities, athletic events, etc. Check out the downloadable info sheet at the top of the page for help.


Your child will stay in the dorms, eat at the cafeteria, go to classes, etc. But, there are many informational activities for parents. You will need to secure a hotel room for the weekend. We recommend the Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott . Hotels on Wards Road are adjacent to the campus, but not within easy walking distance. (The only hotel within easy walking distance is the Fairfield Inn.)


We will make sure the kids arrive safely at Liberty and will get them all checked into their dorm rooms and help with planning their agenda for the weekend. After that, they are pretty much on their own as a college student. We will have ONE meet-up event each day.

For example, we will meet for Convocation on Friday, we will meet at a predetermined place on Saturday, and we will meet for church on Sunday morning. I will do a quick head count, make sure everyone is alive and well and taking full advantage of the weekend, and then everyone is free to go enjoy. I will have everyone’s phone numbers and I will make sure they have our phone numbers. But, the students will primarily be ON THEIR OWN to experience COLLEGE FOR A WEEKEND.
