    Paint? Check.

    Bands? Check.

    Longwood’s officially ready to cut loose for Oktoberfest, and though it may be raining, Mortar Board is bringing a little bit of Hawaii to Farmville this year. The campus is ready, but are you? Mary Alexander ’16 and Jennifer Thompson ’17 compiled these 9 must-have items for one of the best weekends of the year.

    1. Oktoberfest T-shirt
